Her clean-side/dirty side layout, as well as the placement of the appliances, serving areas etc. has worked really well. We designed most of our common house ourselves, but Mary's capable input on the kitchen was really helpful. Plus she's really nice to work with. Further appliance notes: We've been happy with our choices: a large, but not commercial fridge, ditto on Dacor range top, big enough for large pots, and separate convection oven. We have spray table, 3-part pot sink, and a usual two-side steel sink useful for hands, vegetable prep etc, as well as hand washing small quantities of dishes, or odd items like sharp knives. The adjacent pantry has an open mop closet, which includes a seldom-used small wall-mounted sink, and a useful floor-level drain pan with faucets placed for filling buckets. In the dining room, a beverage bar area has a counter with coffee and hot water maker, various pitchers or beverage bottles, a small bar sink with drinking water filter, open shelves for cups and glasses, drawers with tea bags, bottle openers, etc. Lynn Nadeau, RoseWind Cohousing Port Townsend Washington (Victorian seaport, music, art, nature) http://www.rosewind.org http://www.ptguide.com http://www.ptforpeace.info (very active peace movement here- see our photo) _______________________________________________ Cohousing-L mailing list Cohousing-L [at] cohousing.org Unsubscribe and other info: http://www.cohousing.org/cohousing-L
