Gosh, I would love to have this setup in my kitchen:
What are those things on the lower shelves? I never saw them in my kitchen.
I think, not really positive, they are called vegatables...Legumes in another world...
Well, damn I hate to admit this, but whenever I explore a new country, that is the first place I seek. A good kitchen gadget store, something that I can add to my tools in the kitchen........I really miss cooking...
IKEA sells that sort of cabinetry.
Okay, that really is cool. And, looking for ideas as we're hoping to build. Thanks for sharing!

Saw that on FB and loved it too!:cheers:
The antique version ... my grandmother's house plan.
No credit cards and the shipping is a bear .....
AGA Dream Stove (and a pretty cute little doggie too)
This model had a water jacket to heat water for storage in ~30 gal tank. The only stove I ever saw my grandmother cook on as the electric stove was for storage.
Nice.....looks like it’s built like a battleship! But why the 30 gallon water heating capacity? What was THAT feature used for? Drawing a bath while flipping pancakes?
It was the water heater for the house. Any hot water was heated via the stove, which was an 1864 design and always had a fire in order to cook and have hot water.
I guess that’s why in old movies you sometimes see a bathtub in the kitchen! Talk about multi-tasking....
Yes, this one heated water for the shower in the basement or tub in the bathroom though. I never saw the electric stove used, which was probably a good thing since when I was older I looked at the wiring and the fuse box was 60 amp service .... about what a stove would need without the rest of the house.
The heated water tank is shown on the right.
I have limited references here, but it looks to be the same or maybe a similar set up to a wood fired hot tub heater. I guess the more things change, the more they stay the same. Gotta respect how solidly built all those stoves are, though! Whoever built them, thought about durability lasting well into the future.
