Appliances–November 13, 2013

We got a new sink disposal today! I was pretty excited that there was already one in place when we bought the house, but it died about a week ago. It’s replaced now, so life will go back to being a bit more convenient. Oh, the things that make me happy!

The kitchen in this house was not exactly one of it’s selling points. There wasn’t a fridge when we bought it so we purchased one immediately. We got a great deal on it, but it sticks out in front of our pantry door a bit, so we can’t get all the way in to the pantry easily (but, how often does one need to get all the way into a pantry?). The dishwasher that was in here had to have been from the ‘70’s. We replaced that several months ago when we got our washer and dryer. The way the plumbing was set up, we had to have the plumber install it instead of the regular installation guys.

That leaves the stove/oven range. And I would seriously like to replace that right now. The stove isn’t too bad except that we have to turn the heat all the way to high and then turn it down to get to the right setting and even then it isn’t very precise. The oven is what is very frustrating. Even with an oven thermometer, I can’t seem to figure out how to set the oven temperature. I’m pretty sure this thing is about 30 years old. It’s the next thing to get replaced when we have the money. Cooking a Thanksgiving turkey in this thing is going to be an adventure.

The joys of buying an old house! And don’t even get me started on the size of the bathroom and the kitchen. But, I’m thankful we have this house and that it’s heated and that we have the shop out back. Eventually, we’ll get all the stuff in the house settled in to the way I like it. Eventually.
