"Patterned tiles accent the wallspace above the corner cooktop. The cast-stone vent hood surrounds a metal exhaust unit."
As a means of allowing in natural light while maintaining privacy along the side of the house, Jenney extended the wall cabinets down to the countertop and installed a row of windows above them. The adjoining wall of casement windows opens to a screened porch at the rear. To achieve the look of natural stone, she used reconstituted limestone for the countertops and the bracketed corner hood. She chose this product because it possesses the mellow color of quarried limestone and can be cast into a variety of shapes.
