There is a time in every season when we seem to take a step backwards; back to before we had running water and a kitchen. Some part of our house is always under renovation or remodelling, and this week it is the turn of the kitchen benches. The sink is again a bowl on the ground, in the outdoor shower, which is handy in this heat as I can do the dishes under a waterfall.
We originally added a plywood top, which was unsuccessfully sealed with resin, then covered over with another thin layer of ply. Finally the concrete bench tops are at the top of the list. I insisted that my handy husband "practice" in the bathroom, then his office desk before attacking the kitchen. He does like to experiment, and this way there are two opportunites for success or failure.
