I tried to make the new kitchen work in the original space. Before pictures and post here. Then I expanded into the next room. It was okay, but there were many inklings things were not right. I was weary and ready to 'settle' for a kitchen across the entire back of the house, but the bid was way over budget. I tried relocating the kitchen into the space on the left side of the hall. It worked perfectly and saved a little on the budget without 'settling'. Ha, ha! At least at first. Here is the result. I apologize for the picture quality. The images will be replaced when better ones are available. A photographer I am not! The Old Kitchen Bakery will be posted separately soon.
