White Cottage Farm Kitchen Reno – The Brick Stove Cove Start
This kitchen makeover has been happening for a very long time. It has been one thing we at all times knew would come “later” however we by no means knew precisely when or how. We have been on this home for six years now this spring and we renovated this kitchen to make it lighter, brighter and extra fashionable shortly as a result of we began the adoption course of and needed it to be practical and exquisite earlier than the infant was born. The gorgeous child has been in our home for 4 years now, so it is thrilling to make this kitchen what we have at all times dreamed of. Earlier renovations had been a number of demo and replacements, however now we’re altering layouts, including partitions, selecting extra everlasting fixtures and supplies, and likewise making it work how we have realized we would like it to over the past 6 years.

How the bricks come packaged:
One factor we dreamed about was an previous range. We needed a giant range that appeared previous, felt previous, or was an important accent piece within the kitchen that was heirloom and would final a lifetime. Effectively, we discovered it. Extra on that hunt later and I am so excited to share, however for now let’s check out this “range cove” as I known as it that we constructed to deal with our new range once we put it again collectively. The dream was to have the range encased in some sort of stone that may seem like it belonged within the range from 100 years in the past, as it will have appeared. We undergo a stone selecting journey and land on the brick of Supply of Belden Bricks [for all my local friends]. You may see extra about brick and choices [HERE] on my Instagram. However lastly we come to the historic reclaimed brick, which is so becoming for this 1800’s farmhouse and actually helps set the complete tone of our imaginative and prescient for this house. Historic supplies, tons of texture and a great deal of character.
The “cove of the range” advances from at this time…
The bricklayers began this venture simply earlier than the weekend and we are going to seemingly be completed by the top of the week. They’re engaged on the “range cove” and we can even be putting in the brick within the ground of the butler’s pantry in addition to tying it to the “range cove” which is positioned proper subsequent to it. Whereas we’re not executed with the brick in “range cove” but, I might prefer to share with you a number of the issues the masons have executed to this point to make this space seem like it is at all times been right here, utilizing effective bricks.
Methods we’re making our brick look historic:
-The bricklayers are utilizing reclaimed bricks that we have now picked which have been eliminated and picked up from previous buildings after which minimize into skinny bricks. Brick Identify: Reclaimed Chicago Brick from Pine Corridor Brick.
-They’re utilizing the damaged items which can be often discarded and mixing them into the sample to get a tidier look. Masons mentioned that after they destroy previous buildings, small items are used so there is no such thing as a waste. I like the look!
– Masons added a “nailing board” as all of us name it on the again wall between the brick in one of many rows so we have now a bit of wooden to hold issues like artwork, utensils and extra. Homes and buildings 100 years in the past had these planks within the brick for hanging issues and for help, so this plank matches on this house and might be very helpful.
-They’re wrapping the brick on the corners, edges and extra to offer the bricks full dimension look. extra on that later.
Just some updates and pics right here, however I will be again quickly with extra of the progress of the “range cove” and butler’s pantry bricks. I’m so enthusiastic about this kitchen renovation and might’t wait to share the method with you as we pour our hearts and souls into this house. Thanks for being her alongside this journey and for stopping by to see what we’re doing each day. xx
