What challenge have you overcome in your kitchen? The original space was claustrophobic, with walls dividing up the kitchen, living room, foyer, and dining room. I redesigned the space, tearing down the walls between the spaces and reconfiguring the relationships between those rooms. A custom stainless steel countertop piece folds upward to create a bar height counter that is a breakfast bar and a visual division between the two rooms.

I pooled my cash with a friend to purchase this coop in New York City last year. Unrenovated since it was built in the 1920's, the kitchen was a dilapidated mess with cockroaches dead on the floor, vinyl tile, a legitimate farmhouse kitchen sink, and no countertops (see image #2). We ripped everything out, and put everything in the kitchen ourselves on a $4500 budget.
The new kitchen has LED lights, no-VOC paint, and salvaged appliances.
What is your favorite meal to cook here?
I love experimenting with my maternal family's recipes, while my roommate enjoys concocting vegan science experiments.
