What Houzz contributors are saying:
The owners wanted the kitchen sink to look out to the dogtrot fireplace; windows share the light and create the idea of a horse stall. "I cannot tell you how crucial the shared light is in this home," Pylant says. Placing the sink on the dogtrot side dictated that the range be placed in the island, and the clients' range required a commercial vent hood.Frustrated with the choices available (too contemporary or too typical), Pylant wanted something large scale that looked like it was fashioned from farm equipment. "Our contractor, Monty Jones, is a true artisan," he says. Jones had some metalworkers custom fabricate the drum with a standard commercial range insert. When asked about the finish, the owners rather liked the discoloration and fingerprints and wanted to see what would happen if they just left it alone. Now it has a unique patina that adds another dose of well-worn industrial style.
