The kitchen is where Sappho and her husband did most of their changes when they first moved in in 2001. With a tight budget they decided to keep the 15 year old dated cabinetry that was still in good shape and just add a second row of uppers for needed storage. Then it was all hand painted in a soft white to unify the old and the new. They also added a floating checkerboard cork floor to cover the unsightly vinyl and the island is the very first prototype of an island for Henhouse designed by Sappho. The over sized lantern is vintage and originally came from the officer’s mess hall in the Stadacona Lodge, Halifax.

The fridge surround was custom made and designed by Sappho to give a more “fitted” look with shelving for everyday dry goods. Glass jars are an everyday item at Henhouse.
