Sporadic updates on the renovations of my 1924 Spanish colonial revival house in Coconut Grove, Florida. One less "mcmansion" in the Grove. Mostly not great quality iPhone photos. Ghastly editing too.

The Craig's List Viking Range
I found this beautiful cobalt blue 4 burner + griddle convection oven on Craig's List. It was in a waterfront house along the Venetian Causeway in Miami Beach. The house was recently sold and the new owner had plans to tear the house down and start new. The oven was perfectly new on the inside ..all we had to do was convert to LP gas and we swapped out the brass trim to chrome. This range in this color retails for $9,869. We paid less than $1k and the seller also gave us his Shaw Fireclay Farmhouse sink. SCORE.
For the record: everything on my kitchen counters was found in local thrift stores and garage sales. Ditto for all the china in those cabinets.
