The Kitchen features granite countertops, cherry cabinets, built-in microwave and cabinet-depth refrigerator with bottom freezer, a free-standing marble-topped bowl cabinet, and a birch and pine recycling center with bookshelves and glass fronted cabinetry above. Both refrigerator and dishwasher are faced with custom cabinet fronts. One of the main perimeter beams runs through the kitchen, and both post and ceiling beams are structural elements of the house. The kitchen includes an enclosed portion of the former porch, and the original roofline with wooden shake shingles was revealed during the latest kitchen renovation. Reclaimed pine flooring was installed in 1999. Eight windows cover the entire west wall of the kitchen, providing a panoramic view of the river and gardens. The brick patio is just outside the kitchen and by opening the lower sashes, guests can be served both inside and out.
