Fridge in place

I love it when a plan comes together.

I gave up and took out the grimy linoleum in the fridge nook, leaving the plywood under it. The plywood needs to be replaced, really, because a two-inch strip to the right has rotted; I'm guessing the refrigerator in there leaked, or didn't have a drip pan, or the drip pan was never emptied. (On seeing this, I promptly emptied the drip pan on this one, which had three-quarters of an inch of water in it.)

Anyway, I'm still working on the floors and cabinets, but... the kitchen is basically done. I was going to clean it, then make breakfast, but it's already afternoon and I'm just too hungry, so I guess I'll cook breakfast tomorrow. I have some fresh eggs from my dad's chickens; an omelette sounds pretty good.


  1. I'm not surprised the drip pan was never emptied--that is one tight nook.

    Do honor to the fresh eggs by cooking them when you're not tired.

  2. Yeah, and that's a smaller-sized refrigerator, too. Fortunately, its drip pan is easily accessible.

    I got new, even fresher eggs today, and plenty more where those came from; I think he keeps the chickens more as a hobby than anything, but he's sure happy to get rid of eggs. I think I'll cook them tomorrow morning, or some of them, anyway - I took six gigantic eggs. I'm pretty sure they're chickens, but these eggs are like goose eggs or something. Ostriches, maybe. Velociraptors.

  3. That arched top of the nook just looks weird to me. Are you going to put a piece of statuary or something in there to fill the blank spot?

  4. That's not a bad idea; it does look a little blank, doesn't it?
