Just closed on a new house...

And I'm going to remodel the kitchen. This should be fun! Here are a couple before's. After's will be a while seeing as ink is still drying as I type this. We are going to create a pantry where there is currently a glass double door to a tv room and replace all the flooring downstairs. Kitchen is getting completely rethought outside of using the nice brick alcove for our new stove.





Already ordered a Bluestar 60" with double griddle and extra 25k btu burner to replace one of the 15k (for wok cooking)

    after 2 or 3 weeks negotiating on my first house i told the realtor he had 2 more weeks to get it done.  i bought plane tickets and disappeared  for a while =) a week in grand bahamas and another in abaco. no idea if i pissed off the owners but they had some time to cool down and i just needed to get away. if it doesnt happen its just not meant to be

    Been out shopping for appliances this morning... You know there is a fridge that cost $18k just sitting on a showroom in Gulfport, MS.... Makes me feel better about my smoker cost.

    You'll love the Bluestar. We bought the platinum (IIRC) model where you can convert any pair of burners to either griddle or grill.  Wokking is heavenly on it.

    Can I live there, take care of it and coordinate events? Sounds like a perfect retirement job to me.

    This is probably more accurate.

    Just out of curiosity and comparison of what cost compared to where it is located, may  I ask what you agree upon for the final price.

  • Very nice!  That Blue Star will look great in the brick alcove.  
  • And I'm going to remodel the kitchen. This should be fun! Here are a couple before's. After's will be a while seeing as ink is still drying as I type this. We are going to create a pantry where there is currently a glass double door to a tv room and replace all the flooring downstairs. Kitchen is getting completely rethought outside of using the nice brick alcove for our new stove.

    awesome place! Congrats. You had better triple seal that beautiful brick if you are going to do any wok cooking inside. The oil aerosolizes (is that even a word?) and gets everywhere.

     Sound advice re: sealing the brick.

    You may have already considered this, but if wok cooking is your thing, then also look for a high flow hood for the range,  that vents outside. May need to have an 8" duct to the outside vs. the standard 6".

    And congrats on the new pad!! When will the signature Thatgrimguy patio be added on? :)
