    the kitchen is a little too woodsy - i'd rip out the ugly track lights and take the upper cabinets out and replace with shelves, or at least change all the cabinet doors to glass or something to lighten up the all-wood feel of it but other than that, i'm in lurve.

    I want to like it so badly and I'm almost there, but it just doesn't do it for me. I love the exterior, but the interior is just so, blah.

    Lord, that kitchen! Holy moly, super appliances.
    I agree the track lights look odd. No ceiling lights. There has to be another idea.

    I would ditch the picnic table in the kitchen and replace it with an island.
