UPDATE ON FRIDGE/FREEZER REPLACEMENT - After extensive research, we settled on an upright fridge/freezer combination made by a company out of Italy called Vitrifrigo. Rick likes it because it operates on a danfoss compressor/evaporater coil system and 12-36Volt DC or 100-240 volt AC. Deb likes it because it is pretty, shinny and new. We originally wanted it in black, but the dealer made us an offer we couldn't refuse on a stainless steel unit and we could get it right away.
This is the old Refrigerator Freezer side by side with the microwave in a cabinet down below it.
The hole where the old fridge/freezer sat - now the cutting begins. It's one thing to cut into a little cabinetry - it's another to cut into the fiberglass superstructure which was required in order to put in a vertical unit versus horizontal and, of course, all those hidden wires!
The top secret project underway - it was probably best not to know what was happening in there.
The new fridge in it's new space with the microwave/convection oven in it's new higher up cabinet - and more importantly -A NEW STORAGE CABINET (we all lust after more storage) - Deb called dibbs - sorry Rick - no tools allowed.
We found a wonderful cabinet maker in Columbus - cheap and he got what we needed done in three days! Face frame and doors for our new storage cabinet.
Bye-Bye - we talked about a burial at sea, but Jimmy and "T" (dock managers at Columbus Marina) offered to take them to recycling center for us.
Our new galley, still needs staining and varnishing, but it's functional - it certainly was not on the list of things to get done before we headed south, but, that's life. Nice job Rick, Love Deb
