Fallingwater was about an hour away from where I was from. Always thought it would be cool to live there…….with the three-legged chairs and the massive boulder in the dining room. Sure, the kitchen was small, all of FLW’s kitchen were small…….I don’t think he was big on food. Too bad.[:(]
gnash, gnash, grind , grind and btw[?]……do you do windows?
Thanks, but it sounds too complicated.
Cooking skills I have acquired over the years:
1. Boiling water
2. Opening cans
3. Turning on (and off) the microwave.
4. Wash raw vegetables and fruits in order to:
5. Put raw vegetables in bowl and pour salad dressing from bottle on top of vegetables to make salad.
6. Peel raw fruits that need peeling and put in mouth.
Wow, I never realized how many and varied my cooking skills were after all! [:p]
I just defrosted and scrubbed the fridge, and the microwave’s pretty clean, so gnash away.
Frank Lloyd Wright made wonderful sculptures, but few were ever really fit for human habitation. When one of his clients complained abour a leaking roof ( a sure sign of a Wright house) , Wright informed him:
"You should never leave a work of art out in the rain".
I’ll send you a George Foreman Grill, frozen dinners from our leftovers and hmmmmmmm a selection of cookbooks for the Ultimate Bachelor[:D]
and btw..if that mini fridge and microwave area are cleaned up…….I’ll still gnash my teeth in envy.[:D]
My "kitchen" consists of a microwave and a mini-fridge, so I guess one could say that my kitchen is only 0 feet wide and 0 feet long. Of course, I can always avail myself of any of the 6 kitchens available to me, but they’re all in other houses so they’re not really y’all’s teeth-gnashing envy kinda kitchen.
And since all I know how to cook is boiled water, about all I ever do in those kitchens is heat something up in a microwave or cook boiled water.
Wow…..I hate to hear of you having to trod around in that
but just think how great it will be with all new stuff…..gives you excuses for even MORE new stuff[;)]
lol, Vince…….so true about Fallingwater…it’s just about 45 mins from me.and that was the VERY first thing I noticed about it, my first trip there, along with the major craters in the road leading to it[;)]
Sounds like a tough situation; hope all works out well for you and yours.
While I had my kitchen torn up I improvised a temporary setup, kind of an indoor camp kitchen. Having the fridge across the far end of the living room was fun. For a while.
Took me some 10 years of patience till I could do something about mine, but it was worth it, as I’m sure it’ll be with yours. If this helps, I made a pilgrimage last summer to Fallingwater, Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterpiece. A vacation home as a work of art, the stuff of inspiration – and it had one tiny, cramped kitchen. I hear it was a major chore for the cook to work in it.
lleechef – thanks for the invite! One can only dream.
redtressed – the insurance adjuster who came out to my house this morning explained to me that the layer of floor padding under the laminate acts like a carpet pad as it soaks up, spreads and retains the water. Not only is the floor in my kitchen going to be replaced, they are replacing the entire downstairs as it all ran together.
At least my house is dry now, and the noise is gone [:)], but the downstairs of my house makes for some very interesting terrain.
I have a two-bedroom bungalow built in 1926. It’s a cozy little house that I like very much, but the kitchen does have some drawbacks. It’s got plenty of space for such a small house but is poorly laid out. It’s also got ugly paneling, linoleum and cabinets that all look like they came from an early-1970s fire sale. Can’t afford to do anything about the layout, but I’m working on what I can. The plastic fake-brick paneling had already been painted, so I painted the wood paneling to match (sort of a buttermilk color). The next step is to strip and paint the cabinets a soft green color to match the Jade-ite I’ve started to collect. I’ve got my eyes open for a nice Hoosier cabinet to go in the space along one wall.
