And honestly, can you blame me? This has to be the cutest little wall oven ever, amirite?!
The wall oven, range top, and ventilation hood are from Blue Star, an American-made, restaurant-quality line of appliances for the residential market, as they say in their marketing copy. Although my culinary skills are laughably far from Michelin-level, I wanted professional grade kitchen equipment like the real chefs use, and the oven had to be gas. (Surprisingly hard to find in a wall oven.)
The range top has a 25,000 BTU power burner, a low-heat simmer burner, and a griddle in the middle. Awesome! Plus you can customize your look from a palette of over 700 colors. Once we learned that, there was no going back.

The week’s activities included installation of radiators, appliances, window trim and ceiling fan plus all of the cabinetry work that can be done before the countertops go in. Take a look.

Next week Ilise and I have to finalize decisions about paint color, window treatments and kitchen stools. There really is no rest for the wicked! Tune in next week for another renovation recap.
