new kitchen faucet

Along with remodeling our tiny bathroom to make it more functional (and more rustic to match it being in a log cabin), Bill is re-water-piping the whole cabin. Whoever built it, as well as the jokers who later added central air, didn't really know what they were doing.

As long as he was re-water-piping, we decided to go ahead and replace the kitchen faucet --- we have disliked the old one from Ikea since the day we moved in. It had a high goose-neck and hung close to the back of the sink (more like a bar sink model), causing me backaches as I washed the dishes from leaning too far forward. This new faucet spans closer to the center of each sink compartment; no more backache! Having a pullout sprayer is handy as well since there's no hole for a separate sprayer in the existing farm sink.

Someday we would like to redo the air conditioning ductwork to be more efficient, and possibly give us space for a tiny half-bath in the loft. Right now, the downstairs area stays cool while the loft (my studio) is unbearably hot in the summer. Of course, a new metal roof would also help, reflecting the sun's heat away from the rafters . . . .
