I've heard that you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone... I'd say that's about right! Our last house had an amazing pantry. Granite counter tops, cherry cabinets, an extra fridge... It even had a window! And now I'm relegated to a pantry that barely qualifies as a closet. I know, a small pantry closet is typical, but still... Gotta miss all those shelves and the extra fridge--Popsicle, anyone?!
So, The Mister had this brilliant idea that he should build an additional pantry. I told him that we'd just have to keep extra food storage in the basement... He just would not listen. And then he started building his project--without my approval! I made more than my share of disparaging remarks. And I wondered who, in their right mind, would agree with him about this being a good idea.
Apparently, in my right mind, I would be the one to agree with him! That Mister is truly brilliant! I can't believe that I thought he'd lost all his marbles... It still sounds crazy, but it is so functional! The new pantry is in the garage, just outside the kitchen door. It is accessed by the landing from the stairs that lead from the garage floor into the house. It is suspended over an additional fridge and freezer which are located at the back of the garage.
