Or at least the first time since we have lived here I have a working oven! It is very exciting. After the Thermidor got an official death certificate from a vintage oven specialist (I tried everything to save it, I really did), it was time to move on. So using some of the home equity money I bought a new Kitchen Aid micro and wall oven combo and an inexpensive ikea cabinet to house it. The old cabinet was too small for any oven I’d want to be a forever oven so this is my solution. Now I have my new oven and don’t have to wait until the whole kitchen is done. It took most of a week, a rather frustrating week with limited kitchen access but finally it’s done. There is still finishing work of course but it’s totally usable!
