Leanne Ford and her brother, Steve, replaced the existing lower cabinets with a custom, metal grate-fronted system that they powder-coated bright white and topped with a solid surface Formica countertop. Leanne's thoughtful design choices combined to create the look of a home that's been there for years — a far cry from the brand-newness of the original space.
Leanne covered the range hood in wood and painted it white, swapped the existing gas cooktop with a high-end stove and installed industrial-chic fixtures throughout. She kept the existing concrete floor, sealing it with a matte sealer — a decision that judge, Mike Holmes, questioned. Her response? "I honestly believe in imperfectly, perfect."
A solar generator isn’t going to give you the same power, right now at least, as the gas-guzzling behemoths. But it is going to keep going … and going … and going … even when there’s no more in the tank for its bigger fossil-fuel-eating brother. And it won’t expel deadly gasses like potentially fatal carbon monoxide, either. Solar generators can be used to power multiple hand-held devices, a mini-fridge and other small but survival-necessary items. So for those who require powered devices to breathe or refrigerated medications, a solar generator could be the difference between life and death during an extended outage.
