Remodeling the Kitchen




A recycle shop (second hand store) was closing down the street. They had these two appliances for sale. One is a large commercial grill and the other is a commerical stove. Growing up in the restaurant business I know that these things are not cheap, especially in Japan. They wanted roughly $700.00 dollars for the grill, and $500.00 for the stove. That was still inexpensive as I ocassionally stop by the restaurant supply stores. Well, they were blowin them out for $200.00 dollars for the grill and $100.00 dollars for the stove. They were closing the doors to the shop the very next day. We talked for a while and asked him what he wanted. To make a long story short, if we would drive the items away he sold them to us for $250.00 dollars and he threw in a stainless steel counter. There was no way that we would be able to afford something like this for the Koinonia Cafe, God totally provided for us. Our next step is to put in a stainless steel sheet for the wall and put in the exhaust hood/fan. We will keep you posted on our progress.
