Well, minus some glass, our kitchen renovation is finally done! I lost the argument on the stove, but managed to get a vintage fridge in, on the condition that the fridge surround actually pops out to fit a larger modern fridge, should this one die or we sell the house. I designed the cabinets myself, and am pretty happy with everything. The dishwasher is an integrated Fisher Paykel double dishdrawer. The stove is a Kitchenaid. And the gem of the kitchen (to me) is the vintage GE fridge, which is chugging along fabulously.

Very nice kitchen!  The cabinetry looks very well executed, and the back door and the window are "just right" for the space.

That fridge looks designer-perfect in that kitchen. GE must have made a zillion of those because I cleaned up a lot of them for resale. Unlike newer model General Electrics, they always seemed to work. As I recall they had a solid condenser on the back (memory is shot so I could be wrong) which may have contributed to their longevity. I do remember the nice solid sound the doors made when you closed them...sort of like closing the door on your new Cadillac.

Nice installation!  I applaud your thinking ahead and leaving a provision for being able to replace the GE if necessary - I am constantly being reminded of what would happen if the GE Wall Refrigerator in the Ogden kitchen gives up the ghost. 


Your fridge looks great in the new kitchen - congratulations!!

Looks very nice. What type of material did you use for the countertop?
