Good day my friends. Lots of new changes going on in the mill these days. From walls to doors that have been added and more. I thought I would share a few photos and start with just the kitchen area first. Remember a few posts back when I rambled on about this wall in the kitchen that I did not know if I wanted it to stay or go? Well I finally decided to get rid of it.
Here is what the wall looks like gone. They have since finished it off and as an added bonus so to speak, they went a step further and made my pantry larger. (the open entry door seen here leading to the pantry) Whooohooo! I had them build the wall wide enough for the cupboard above. Sure opened up the kitchen. The other side of the wall is where the stairs are to go to upper level.
I added this photo again to show side by side differences of before and after.
In this photo of the kitchen are the two doors added. The center one will lead out to the 3 season porch. The other far right door will lead into the garage. The center wall between the two doors will be where the double oven and stove will go. You can't tell in this picture but it is a very deep wall where the flour came into from upper level and they bagged the flour here. So the oven and stove will sit into this wall. Gonna be pretty cool!!!!
Here is another shot of kitchen, far right is the new wall. Sorry for the poor photo. With no electricity to give more light some photos are dark. Have had very few sunny days for good photo opps.
This photo has nothing to do with the kitchen but just wanted to share with you this monster piece that the guys hung up just to get it out of their way. It is a grain hopper original to the mill. We intend to use it as the top of our shower in the upstairs bathroom. Way Cool!!!!!. Can't wait to show more soon. Hope you enjoyed some of what is happening at our mill. With any luck we can start moving in early summer/late spring! Visa Versa. Have a wonderful day my friends.

Don't you just love Fall. Something about the colors and the cooler weather that makes one feel all cozy inside. Hard to believe the holidays are just around the corner. I have added a few touches of fall in my kitchen here. Love using a candle stand for other purposes to give added height where needed. I also will show some touches of fall to my living room on another post. Man, I had my nails done recently to add length and strength to. They look pretty but are sure challenging to type with. Hope you have a wonderful fall and will post more on the old mill progress.
