After a few minutes of re-measuring we realize that the kitchen is not as long as we originally thought. We're missing about 4 inches.
|The header in the foreground is for the left door;
The header for the right door is harder to see.
|The sunporch is now just a porch. Soon, new walls
and windows will make this an office.

the options. We ended up rotating one full height cabinet (actually making
it much larger) and narrowing the two doors to the dining room a little.
|It's very dark - I hope the new windows let in
more light than this plywood.
This is Mick's foreman, Sammy.
