To maximize space and to improve flow it looks like having the fridge on the small part of the L ending with a wall and hidden a bit into the pantry is working best.
It feels so nice, open, and full of light!!!
Thinking about changing the countertop depth to 36" but this is the latest layout concept.
We are clearing out several things. I’ll post some of them here. Let us know if you want them or they are going to the dump.
Rossi Family Tradition
The purpose of this blog is to communicate, document, and encourage participation in the remodel, use, and enjoyment of the Rossi Family House at 38565 Bautista Canyon Way Palm Desert CA 92260-1212
January 28, 1971 Raymond Angelo Dece Rossi and Estelle A. Rossi purchased lot 155 in Palm Desert Greens. Sometime around 1979 the site was prepped and the manufactured home was placed on the lot. Ray and Estelle enjoyed many years at this property with their 5 children, 4 grand children, and countless other family members and friends. We hope to do our part to continue that tradition.
Remodel - Lease - Maintain
There will be 3 main phases to the remodel
Phase 1 - Kitchen and living room areas.
Phase 2 - Bedrooms and bathrooms.
Phase 3 - Exterior.
Upon completion of the remodel. Leasing the house part time will pay for the remodel and then be used to maintain the property.
