Very neat about building your own kitchen island. I'm sure you and your wife will love it. My husband and I had also talked about building an island when we re-did our kitchen. In the end though, we went for the pub table. I love it because I can put a leaf in the middle and open it up for extra seating (we keep four bar stools under it) and/or prep space. And I can move it out of the kitchen if I want to, or shove it up against the wall. Yes, I do love it for it's flexibility as well as utility!

I’m still drawing up plans, but I’m really leaning toward have a moveable island; I’m having trouble finding wheels that can support a granite top, lock, and look discreet/classy. The problem with our house is that it was designed for the token family with 1.46 kids, so the kitchen is a bit cramped for a family of 7. It has a breakfast nook area, which really reduces the amount of functional food prep space. Eventually I’d like to redo the breakfast area to have cabinets and counters, but that’s waaayyyy down the road.

As far as liking to cook, I made dirty rice with Patchy for lunch today! :D

You can see where the vent hole for the wood burning stove was plugged up. I totally want a wood burning stove. Actually, I'd like a stove that is gas and can convert to wood. They sell those, but they're pricey!!!

ETA: Great article, thanks!

Gas stove that converts to wood? There is such a thing? We’re looking at pellet stoves now, since the fuel (recycled wood pellets) is cheap and super efficient. Although reading your post, I may have to do more research.

I want creation to penetrate you with so much admiration that wherever you go, the least plant may bring you clear remembrance of the Creator.  A single plant, a blade of grass, or one speck of dust is sufficient to occupy all your intelligence in beholding the art with which it has been made  - Saint Basil
