I don’t know how people survive extended kitchen remodels. Our kitchen was in a state of moderate disaster for two and a half days and it majorly cramped our style.

Ken had measured before we ordered the oven to ensure it would fit. I knew we’d have to sacrifice at least part of a drawer to move the floor of the cabinet to fit the greater height of the new ovens, but I didn’t realize we were so close in width we’d have to remove the drywall to get the door on… This is before we realized we needed another two inches.

Turns out that drywall mud, a new corner reinforcer thing, texture, and paint make a big difference. It looks moderately professional!

And look at all of that oven room! The upper oven is a convection oven too, so all these cookies cooked perfectly evenly. Between being able to use full-sized cookie sheets and fill up the whole oven, it takes me about a sixth of the time to make cookies as it did before.

The ovens seem far better insulated than the old one was, so I wonder if the energy consumption will be similar (for one oven) even though it’s bigger.

We made a turkey dinner for a few friends to test out the oven, and it performed beautifully. Ken even found the time to cut the drawers down to size and re-install them. They’re actually much more useful now that they’re not as deep. It makes me wonder about making multiple shallow drawers on the other side of the kitchen.
