Is that an essential item I see in the kitchen ... a wine fridge?

Yes. Not my idea. I'm not picky.

But that's her shop and she can do whatever is needed or desired to continue providing her fabulous meals.

Any one remember Strawberry Hill? Mateus? Lancer's?
College wine.
I still remember the price tag on Strawberry Hill. 89 cents.
Now it seems that's less than the tax one pays for decent bottle of wine.  :lolb:

Boons Farm Apple "Wine" here, $.99 a bottle, 6 for $5.
I get nauseous every time I think about it!  Couldn't drink any kind of wine for 25 years.

House is looking great, won't be long.

ME, as a freshman:

"We had a party on my floor last night."

THEM, as upperclassmen:

"20 guys in a small room, a case of Ripple, and trying all night to get some girls to come over?"

Y'all had the store bought stuff: damn city boys. We had Uncle Richard's homemade grape wine and Walter Beard's corn licker, if'n he wasn't in jail for making shine. Ah, life in the big city :lolb: :lolb:

Wolf range top. Wolf oven. Miele steam oven.

T's loving the range top because it gets good and hot.
She hasn't touched the steam oven yet. She wants quality time to get to know it before using it.

We got the oven at a good deal. Came out of a home whose kitchen was being redone. Hardly used. Makes me wonder why they're bothering doing their kitchen if they don't use it.

I'm hoping she's so busy having fun in her shop that I'll be left alone to have fun in mine.  ;D

Duuuuuuuuuuude, Wolf cooking machines, steam oven, and dedicated wine thingy; maybe you should check the Hardinge website instead of Precision Matthews: that's top notch cooking equipment.

Your assumption is incorrect.  ;D
Her shop is causing me to scale back my shop.    :'(

A disappointment now...but she'll be cooking, if not more often, for far longer, than I'll be machining.   :shrug:

We're way over budget but we're staying here to the end. Now's the time to take a risk. Granted...a very well studied risk.

As Daffy might say "This is a shop!?"

Yes. Yes it is. Somewhere behind all that crap is my shop.
T gets home this Friday.
Then I make my play.  ;D
No. Not that play. Time to schedule when I order my machines.
(What in the world am I saying? Of course that play. But I need a different play book. None of my plays have worked for years.)

Driveway is in so there's no problem rolling the machines into the shop.
Just gotta figure out some other crap details that life throws you..er...me. Well...you too.



I might keep that pumpkin head though. Seems apropos.

Add some machines to it and that picture probably looks like 80% of home shops.

I'm glad to hear your machines are still on the front burner Zee.  :ThumbsUp:

That pumpkin head would be a good start on a steampunk robot...

Just a quick update...

T came home after helping a dear friend through a hip replacement.
I got in trouble. Forgot to toss a pizza box.

Pool got coped, tiled, and plastered. Now I have to go out twice a day to brush.
Fence was supposed to be in tomorrow but will be Tuesday due to rain.
Hardwood floor is done in living room, butler pantry, and T's new office. Despite my forgetting it was wet and trodding over the 2nd coat.

Getting down to details. I've got a two-page punch list. Builder said he had six items on his list. I guess we'll have an interesting discussion tomorrow.

Found out I have to wait a week to move furniture to the new floor. Which means a delay to emptying the shop so I can start nesting.

Hm...I'm thinking it's time to have that discussion with T. Can I order my machines now? Huh? Can I? Can I?

Been raining. I'll get pics soon.
