As I've mentioned before, this is so we can basically seal off half the house and start work in there.
While having a kitchen on a verandah doesn't sound ideal, it's actually a step up for us in many ways. We have brought up some cupboards from the shed to use in here, so it actually has more storage than the kitchen we've used so far, which had exactly no cupboards.
The kitchen we've used so far. (The actual real, forever kitchen will go here too)
Setting up the back verandah to use as a kitchen was relatively straightforward. Dan put his plumber's hat on this morning, running new pipes from here to there to divert our water to where we need it to be -- and installing a sink mixer on the old laundry trough.
Today, he's a plumber.
This is the beginnings of our makeshift kitchen.
For cooking, we have a large countertop oven with two hotplates on the top, plus an array of electric frypans and grills, a slowcooker and, of course, we can just use the BBQ.
So, in many ways a step up for us from the last five months. But I'll probably save my rejoicing until the real kitchen is up and running.
