Good bye city life! Our family designed and built an industrial but old fashioned farmhouse on nine acres. Now we are building our homestead ~ or is it building us? Grab your boots and join us on our journey to country living.
Anyone else tired of cooking from the holidays? Let's just say that I'm going to be using this a lot this week. And since I am, I thought I would show it to you. When we built we decided to put the range in the island which meant a cabinet mounted microwave wouldn't work. So, we put it in the end of the island on a shelf. This allowed us to purchase a counter top model that was hundreds of $$ cheaper too. Under that is a basket with cookbooks close at hand. My DH actually designed the space under the microwave for a networked printer but we still haven't bought one.
Behind the skinny door on the side is storage for cookie sheets and pizza pans and a little drawer for knives. It really has been convenient to have the microwave down there. So... warm it up, boys. I'm not cooking tonight.
