Thank you for your comment @Mitsy Baby My husband is from BC with family in Kelowna, Kamloops, Penticton and Vancouver proper. We followed dear friends here and fell in love with the people of Wenatchee, the 4 seasons and the down to earth, pace. Santa Monica has its own charms - all in all, we were ready to simplify. #lovewenatchee

Thank you for your comment @Andrea W The only upgrades we have done is add newer appliances (existing ones died), paint the walls and stain the floors. The kitchen is the heart of the home....and we are painstakingly thinking of how to keep the farm charm but make it more functional with more room for guests. We had 10 adults, 2 babies and 5 dogs in this kitchen over Christmas - a new record. We know it needs to be done and done right. We have a fully functioning antique porcelain stove in our garage - part of the redesign is to convert from electric to gas. The kitchen is our project for 2017! Been stewing over and researching ideas since 2007 when we bought the house. It takes alot of $ to do a kitchen right and we are taking our time to do so. Stay tuned! :)

Thank you for your comment @mcdonaldde Yes it does work....and beautifully as well!!! The divider fits in perfectly (bought at B,B & B) and the mattress pad (extra thick pad) smooths all surfaces even. The only downside......making the bed can be a little tough (better with 2 sets of hands) specifically tucking the flat sheet in at the mattress ends. Our mattresses lay on top of the box springs (without at bed frame). But honestly, in the end, it's worth it and you will love ALL the extra SPACE! :)
