Initially, our goal was to remove the east millwork to create an opening for a larger refrigerator. The millwork was then to be retrofitted and re-installed. Later on in the project, we found an antique Hoosier cabinet that worked better for our needs than the pre-existing millwork. We revised the design accordingly.
