The best of modern technology meets the best of vintage technology in this video: AutomaticWasher.org’s @joeypete of Concord, N.H., put his GoPro Hero 5 camera inside his vintage Kitchenaid KDM-21 dishwasher to watch exactly how his “Hurricane in a Box” cleans. His KDM-21 is just a bit different from the KDS-21 that I just put in my kitchen!Heck yeah there is more →

The fixit for my vintage Kitchenaid KDS-21 dishwasher — “the last of the great Kitchenaids” — my “Hurricane in a Box” — was easy peasy — I had an answer in 10 minutes — yes: 10 minutes — once I asked the right people: the Imperial-forum experts at Automaticwasher.org. Watch my video — just 2 minutes long — to see the fix and hear a bit o’ the Hurricane! Thank you, Automaticwasherites, and especially, @toploader55!
When you are hunting for laminate for a countertop, be sure to check that it is specified for “horizontal” use. Some laminates are made just for “vertical” use — intended for commercial customers who want to put them on walls or the sides of things that don’t get much pounding. Kitchen and bathroom countertop need the durability, though. Lab Designs is a laminate maker that has a growing number of laminate designs — and has two laminates — Ebony- and Ivory Retro — that were previously ‘vertical’ now available, ‘horizontal.’ Both are nice options for Retro Renovators.Heck yeah there is more →
My wallpaperer came up for air. So we are working together to finish wallpapering (grassclothing) the ceiling of the Mahalo Lounge. Oh, and there are a bunch of men with heavy machinery here today taking down all the trees in the back forty. And, I made a four-hour round-trip Monday to buy a 1986 Kitchenaid dishwasher. Which is still in the back of my Escape.Heck yeah there is more →
A house with a Naughty Pine err Pecky Cedar Lounge downstairs surely has a pink bathroom upstairs, wouldn’t you think?
