Designing a Dream Kitchen

The blueprint of McNemar House was purchased through Southern Living.  It’s plan SL-598.  While we loved almost everything about the plan, there were a few things that needed reworked, and the kitchen was one of them.  During my time in Lost River (while Bronson and I were on the road with his job), I often
