Your kitchen's beautiful!

OK, I took the easy way, (and expensive way), out of the kitchen remodel project. We hired a cabinet maker to oversee the whole project. 3 and a half months from demo to completion. Boy, was it worth it!


Good luck on the finishing touches! Keep us posted!

I like how that light fixture floats below the beam and not on it! :wink:

Good Job E.

jesgord-

We used that orange stripper from Home Depot. Just painted it on with a brush & waited an hour or so until the paint & stain luffed right off. Although I still ended up using a belt sander with a rough grit- then an orbital with a fine grit. What really helps is scaffolding that puts you at arms length while laying down. Scaffolding on wheels help you roll around better. Also a nice military issue gas mask with a chemical hood keeps all the sawdust out of your face... for the beam in the new kitchen area we were on a ladder & took the full force of the sander until our arms gave out. To sum it up. Probably a full two days to get the beam stripped & an hour a day for 3 days to get the clear coat to cover the raw wood...

Its well worth it. We are also planning of stripping the paint from that stone fireplace... That will be another story. SDR requested these updates in an hourly fashion...

I like to think of stripping paint as not having to go to the gym.

These are pages from the 1953 book cited above by moderns-r-us.

I think the exterior images of your house are being looked at closely by young designers today. They are almost perfectly generic examples of their type. No architect could fail to be drawn to their logic and simplicity; the implied load path represented by that larger gap between the pair of windows (doors?) immediately below the ridge beam complements and rationalizes the handsome and interesting asymmetry of the quartet of identical openings (itself a sign of rationality and economy ?).

Enjoy -- you've certainly earned it by your labor and patience.

Here are some shots with the glass doors installed from Hafele and the last of the Hera zenon puck lights installed inside the cabs..
That was a great thread on glass doors from Lady F. & you on retrofits!

Also ventured into the Stenstrom House alone today on my day off. I thought it would be a good time to soak in some of the masters details. It seemed as if his place was stuck back in time. The interior was colder than the exterior since the sun doesn't get to far past all the dark stained plywood. The snow created this interesting effect inside. It actually made the ceilings glow much lighter than the walls. After leaving the only I left only my shoe prints in the snow along w/ all the other critters living on the property.

I feel sort of sad but feel that the Stenstrom house has had its time... It's sort of like that story in the Fountain Head where if its not finished like the plan reads then it should be burned down or in this case decayed down...

Opps got side tracked. Here are those photos:
