This is a special request from Cody's co-worker Janie. Apparently Cody has been bragging up our kitchen, so she asked for some photos of it. It's always difficult to get a good view of a room, but I did the best I could. Above is the view from the living area, looking across the outer eating bar area toward the sink and refrigerator.
Standing at the entrance, near the eating bar, looking across to the sliding glass doors and the yard. The stove is on the left, at the end of the counter.
Standing at the eating bar, looking at the sink. Above the shelves is my collection of Japanese teapots. David's cast iron skillets hang from a curved cedar trunk. The eating bar is a cedar side slab, (the part left over when a cedar tree is milled) butted up against the concrete countertop.
From the other side of the kitchen, next to the stove, you can see the curved concrete countertop, and above it another cedar trunk suspended from the ceiling.
Thanks, Janie - hope these photos give you an idea of how the kitchen looks! As you can tell, we spend a lot of time there!
Awe enables us to perceive in the world intimations of the divine, to sense in small things the beginning of infinite significance, to sense the ultimate in the common and simple, to feel in the rush of the passing the stillness of the eternal.
Happy Trails, Buzz
