The thermometer says its 4 degrees in the kitchen, so Kevin's decision to go without a fridge for now is quite sensible.
What we do need is space and beauty, so that was the first thing I claimed.
I've lived in, visited so many houses. Its pretty much a rule - people who bravely try to dredge food up from a cluttered kitchen do it at great cost to their levels of calm.

1. Put the draining board, everything, under the sink
3. Chop & clean before cooking, wash dishes before eating
