Stove and dishwasher in the living room, delightful!
There were several issues that complicated things - multiple changes made over the years, all of them kind of haphazardly done (adding a 220 for a stove at some point, even though there is a gas hookup, the completely crazy plumbing changes done to throw a random dishwasher in the mix, multiple cable hookups over time -I think every major cable company has done an install here, including a dish on the top of the house, none of which are functioning except the FIOS line). Each trip under the house means a game of "can you see where this wire goes?" so we can pull it out and simplify the underworld landscape.
The great news is, we've decided 90% on our kitchen cabinet layout - just in time for the big IKEA sale. And better news is, they don't require any purchase of appliances this year, just a straight "if you buy $4500 worth of kitchen cabinets, you get 20% off", which fits into our scheme perfectly. So we'll also be ordering those soon, before the sale runs out!
