Looks nice! Have you thought about a prep sink under the window? What about an undermount sink instead of a farmhouse sink on the island (it might pair better with the rich woods)? Just a couple things to consider

Nice set up...definitely more visually appealing than the mess I have going on in my spare/office room.

I'd be concerned about condensation forming on the racks and dropping beadlets on the books below. Alhough I would guess you have a towel rigged up to the bottom of the racks.


Nothing holds a candle to my 2+ foot long plastic tupperware , with a 1.5" thick piece of sanded wood, resting on 2 pavers in 1 3/4" of hot water....lid clamped with a large towel right under the lid.

...not pretty, but it's solid gold in terms of effectiveness.😉😂😂😂

You did the work yourself?

That's what I like to hear. 👍

You can buy 2 decent houses in Metro Detroit for that.


A house in my town, middle class suburb in south Jersey, is around 500-750, ballpark average.

Suffice to say, SB has to be working on homes that are worth at least a million, as is.

Things are booming here in Vegas. Moved here from the Central Coast of CA. WAY to expensive there. Too many taxes and the place is just going to shit. The politics and the people... just got tired of it.

Been to Vegas once, 115 still after dark. But a nice 115. Settled on an island in Puget Sound myself. Nice and slimy and never any traffic, no people hardly. And houses are still cheap, (300 to 400 avg pre owned) less if you build it yourself. Everybody should design and build their own house once IMO.
Downside, no night life. Vegas has a bit.
