Opposite: An existing stone ;replace
in the informal dining area was
covered with drywall and topped with
a restored barn-beam mantel. The
refrigerator and freezer are divided
into two 24-inch-wide columns (at
left in the photo) so that nothing is
stacked high and out of reach.
The island acts as a central cleanup
center with two dishwashers, a trash
compactor and a deep sink. On the
outside wall are two French door
ovens which the homeowner can
open with one hand.
