We have lived in our house since 1979 and over the years have spent a lot of money on it, but the one thing that always had to wait was the kitchen. Don't get me wrong it was functional, it had everything I needed, but just wasn't what I wanted you know? MWM always promised me when he retired I could remodel the kitchen to my specifications, I could have anything I wanted, blow the cost, so with that promise in mind I waited.
In 2004 MWM retired and guess what - I got my new kitchen.
We had three local firms come and draw up plans and give us a quote but only one of them would build my kitchen to my specifications. I don't know whether the other two thought it was too much trouble or not but suffice to say they didn't get the job!
I knew exactly what I wanted (and where) - eye level double oven, five burner hob, integral fridge-freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, undercupboard cd/radio and drop down television, tiled floor, wine rack (very important). Well I got it all and here it is -
