The man and I went down to the house again today...it was good we went together, we had a chance to talk things over without interruptions. I had been trying to solve the kitchen puzzle, and had to go over and see it...too visual....I need to actually see the space....
Getting going with it...Geez it is slow and the man doesn't love talking about it....
I might just add that I am in a PURGING mood!
Too bad we aren't going to be able to move into the house for a while...we need a roof that stays up if nothing else. Must continue on the hunt for an architect. The first one was slow, patronising and does little design work (???), the second the man didn't like...she of the quote for less than a year. Not good with communication, nor with providing info, asked some folks with a lovely house for their architect's name....great...only speaks Spanish.
When we aren't in BCN seeing the Kees Van Dongen exhibit at the Picasso Museum.
....later...I found these great photo resources for kitchens...I got so tired of the Architectural Digest type giant semi-professional kitches. They're so...shiny. Check out here for Historic Ontario Kitchens, and here for a flickr group of world kitchens.
Don't get me wrong, I don't want THOSE kitchens...but something a little less shiny would suit the house better.
I'd say that more than two thirds of the world's population uses their dirt floor as the major work surface in their kitchen.
