1) the renos are in the basement so they do not disrupt my kitchen (9 out of 10 days)
2) we added in a gas line for a basement fireplace that we extended to the kitchen
3) I will eventually have a beautiful basement to spend time in.
Now why is #2 so important, you wonder. The picture says it all, a new gas stove! Thanks to some very wonderful connections we were able to get a deal on this stove and we were able to sell the old stove. Check and Check!
I have yet to bake in it yet but I am excited to see if there are any differences from the good old electric. Lots of exciting baking to come...
