are the walls tongue and groove? - I just love this kitchen! You did a brilliant job!! I wondered if you could tell me about the construction of the walls, is this tongue and groove? Is there a secret to leaving just the right amount of space between the boards? many thanks!

NO, DO NOT USE TONGUE AND GROOVE. The idea is that we are seeing the unfinished walls and ceiling boards. The idea for the ceiling came after I crawled in the ceilng and the finished ceiling tries to look like the actual roof structure. The ceiling is ornamental and non structural, which is much easier to build.
In a pre 10490s house, we would see boards with uneven gaps between them. V-groove looks 1950s. v-groove is much easier to paint.

Thanks so much for this Robert! So I just want to make sure I understand.. you're saying use V-groove? I've also being reading about "butt board", where the boards are butted up to each other with a small, penny size gap..

This is a custom wood window from Sebastopol Window. I salvaged glass from old windows to get the wavy glass effect. Single glaze custom wood windows with 7/8" muntin profiles look better than anything for period effect.

The counters are wood, from 5/4" thick, rift and quarter sawn white oak. white oak I used on sailboat construction because of its water resistance

This is an antique sink from craigs list. They are frequently available, though the condition is usually not that great. New ones are available at strom plumbing aka sign of the crab. Other sizes and manufacturer's sell these type sinks. Check google images for "farm sinks". These sinks perform better than anything available nowdays. they are easy to clean and are super functional. My house I have an undermounted sink and I despise the drain board on the counter. I hate counter mounted faucets that always seem dirty on the edges. I hate typical counters at the backsplash/counter edge as it always gets moldy.

I found mine on Craig's list for just $100. The condition is okay but I am still having it restored - which isn't cheap, but still cheaper than purchasing an identical one new. The seller threw in the original faucet for free and it is in mint condition. In addition, I had to drive more than 100 miles to get the sink so when searching on Craig's list, don't just limit yourself to your immediate metropolitan area. It is well worth it and I can't wait to until mine is restored and installed! When searching on Craig's list I tried many things, but "vintage cast iron sink" worked best. Adding "drainboard" didn't really help much. When you do your search, be sure to click on "show images", that will save your a lot of time since the search will also bring up bathroom sinks and more modern cast iron sinks. Good luck!

Antique lights are hard to find. E-bay is terrible for antique lighting except in the industrial style.
Individual internet stores seem to be the best place to find these items.
These lights were found by Sally Ward who did the interiors. http://www.sallywardinteriors.com/index.html

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Michelle Fries, BeDe Design, LLC added this to 10 Ways to Get the Modern Cottage Look
Keep it humble. Wood ceilings and rafters are the perfect backdrop for the vintage sink and stove in this kitchen. It’s not uncommon to see open upper cabinets, yet in this home, the owners left the doors off a lower unit and topped it with wood. It feels like they picked it up along the way and slipped it into place.
