Of all the houses I’ve had, the purple house was my overall favorite.
We built that house and even though I loved it at the time, I probably wouldn’t build it again. The master bedroom was upstairs. The laundry room was a laundry closet. What was I thinking? I suppose those are the only things I would change . . besides I wouldn’t build an all wood house in southwest Louisiana again.
But, my favorite kitchen of all time was in a house we had in Jasper, TX.
This house was build in the late 50’s or early 60’s and had the quality many houses today don’t have. All the bottom cabinets had pull our drawers. There were over 50 cabinets, and the stove was fantastic! It was electric but it had 2 separate ovens and even with just four burners, it was so spacious. I loved this kitchen! Notice that pocket door. It went to a laundry room that was about 14′ x 12′ with cabinets and tile countertop all around. I loved that house!
I’ve been spending too much time looking at kitchens and I came across this one.
My first thoughts were . . this kitchen desperately needs updating. Harvest Gold stove and sink! But, the more I look at it, the more I like it. I really think I’ve come to want this kitchen! Pretend that stove top is gas. What do you think about this kitchen? If you were buying a house with this kitchen, would you change it? My first thought was that I would change it but then something about it all reminds me of the kitchen I had in Jasper, TX and now I’m thinking I wouldn’t change it. It doesn’t matter . . it’s not my kitchen and it’s probably not ever going to be my kitchen.
