Hello - There are sleepers with rigid insulation set in above the ceiling beams and decking, so no problem with connections.

Yes, this is 48" which I recommend for two people working in a kitchen - one at the sink and one at the stove. I would say that 3'-6" is a minimum. You can do 3'-0" but it will be a bit tight. Best, Joanne

Even I like these kitchens though I was around during the mid-century when these were fashionable and don't usually want to go back there!

It's the furniture, accessories and light fitting that always get me going from this period…loving those ceramic storage jars and the Nelson Bubble Lamps.

Thanks! This is a semi-transparent oil based stain by Cabot's. The color is Spanish Moss. We are now using the Benjamin Moore water based stains called ArborCoat. Their Spanish Moss is very close to this color. Best, Joanne

Vivienne, thank you! I wanted to go with red, like most neighbours, but DH argued that it would look old fashioned. I resisted grey, like some other neighbours, not wanting to buy in to a passing trend. Apparently Victorians loved purple; purple is on the list of colours approved by the Council for our area and has always been my favourite - so purple it is!

I live on a busy-ish road in west London, and have noticed since moving in in January that the rather strangely coloured front door that I inherited (the house has been converted into two flats and I have the upper 2 floors, approximately 2000 sq ft) gets very dirty very easily. Definitely needs some TLC, but I think the TLC will have to be in the form of a darker colour to help mask the exhaust soot that starts to settle!
