I agree with sandy, wholeheartedly!

I don't see any hate, shame, etc. here at all---just reality! There is a serious dose of reality to the chosen austere lifestyle such as Dee & probably many others have put together in their little places!

FWIW: There are so many living now in manufactured trailers of all kinds & pre-fabs & home-builts who require subsidized heating and cooling and repair costs just to survive, it's ludicrous to think that adding to that list is sensible !

It doesn't really matter how innovative & novel & cute & nice her place is and how ell it works for her right now----or how that & her lifestyle compares to what others have chosen. As a matter of fact, I enjoy very similar yet "complete" accommodations for a couple of weeks each year fishing with my g-kids and getting away from the hustle and bustle....and here at home, I contribute regularly in many similar ways to my neighbors' well-being & for those less fortunate than myself---in the same ways she does.

But, no matter how admirable Dee's chosen endeavors are, or how enjoyable & compatible she finds them ---and no matter how little the additional cost may be, Dee's employer-paid-for cell phone & shower, which is implied she uses for personal reasons (How many private/government agency employers make those handouts---is that fair and equitable?), increases the cost of whatever services her employer provides......likewise, Dee's "avoidance" of equitable property & school taxes increases the tax rate of those who do pay their fair share for schools, police, fire, and emergency services, mass transit, etc. .........the list of impacts goes on and on.......AND, while there's no reason a human being CAN'T live as she does---far cleaner obviously yet comparable to third-world countries, should the trend of living as she's contrived, the higher the "tax cost" will be to those who work full-time for a living and pay their fair share for all the "services" she receives for little or nothing.

No matter how caring & giving, she has become part of the ever-growing "underground & subsidized economy" of sorts in our society---working far less than average---living "comfortably," and, ultimately, living as she's clearly chosen to a degree, at others' expense. And how she'll live after retirement---after not having contributed to the inevitable costs as most others have, should be just as great a concern for taxpayers. Once the baby-boomers have left the active, TAXABLE income scene, who's gonna' pay for it all?

Dark cabinetry with turned posts are a classic traditional kitchen with lasting style. This look has been done a lot, and spans several generations, but not enough to date it other than traditional. That valance across the sink window is a bit dated and can be removed with adding new crown on just the cabinets. Adding a little blingy hanging light fixture above the sink would be eye catching. This will make that area feel so much more open too. Replacing the heavy solid light fixtures over the island with a smaller style, lighter, maybe even crystal gems to bring in some flash will be fun. The countertops need to be brighter to give the overall kitchen a pop and not be so monochromatic with the floor. A bolder backsplash would also be a great uplift. Add some color!

I would add under counter lights. Xenon on a dimmer to be exact.
Also, I would change the pendant fixtures to tight spot 4" recessed can lights.
Looks great now though, really

Thank you. We love it too. Our favorite Lithuanian artist, Sonata Kazimieraitiene, hand made every piece. We have several more variations that are as beautiful.

This was a bit tricky to design. The cabinet to the right of the sink was a pullout double trash bin and about 21" wide with extra extended right stile. The cabinet to the left of the frig is overall 48" from the corner and has special swing out storage shelves. Everything needed to clear the hardware when opening up the doors!

Absolutely! These lighter tones will be a nice contrast to dark cabinets. Wood floor would be heavier, but we love this ceramic tile.

Thank you. We liked the rich autumn tones that all blend with each other.
This tile came from The Tile Shop. Subway field with glass above the cooking area.

Hi Julie, This was an arched doorway. No pocket since it lead to other dressing closets that did close off with doors. The arched doorway has a 36" inside jamb width.

Thank you for your compliment. The fabric was from Calico Corner and they were made in our local drapery workshop.
