The kitchen's expansive center island offers both seating and counter space for preparing meals. Beams in the ceiling that run from the back of the kitchen through the front of the home add a nice architectural feature for the open floor plan.
The kitchen island was designed to include a sink and dishwasher. It helps facilitate movement throughout the room by dividing attention between the island and cooking surfaces while a line of bar stools provides seating for family, friends and guests.

This kitchen has been reconfigured to take advantage of the new open concept floor plan. A large kitchen island provides more counter space, as well as doubles as a kitchen table with stools running underneath. The sliding door was reduced to a sink under the window, allowing the galley kitchen to run along the whole wall. Stainless steel appliances, pendant and recessed lighting, and a neutral color scheme create a clean modern look to the kitchen. New flooring was added throughout the whole first floor.

The Pilgrims grew pumpkins that also looked like this short ribbed beauty. This is a moschata type of squash and was grown for both people and livestock to munch. Moschata pumpkins store well, providing a source of fresh food in winter. ‘Long Island Cheese’ pumpkin dates to the early 1800s and is a coveted pumpkin for pie making due to its nearly stringless flesh.
Evergreen Norfolk Island Pines aren't just fun houseplants; they also make great Christmas trees. Their after-holiday care is no different from their daily care. Give these tropicals high humidity and protect them from drafts. They prefer bright light, such as from a south-facing window, and should be watered when the top of the soil starts to feel dry. Don't keep them too wet or let them dry out completely. Feed with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer in spring and summer, following label directions.
