Yes, all the lower cabinets are drawers, with the exception of a long narrow "spice" cabinet that is still empty because I store my spices in the freezer... The floors were oiled before we moved in.

The knobs to the gas stove are on the counter, not on the front of the oven, so he can't see or reach them...

These are all wonderful ideas, thank you!!

Yes! :) Lots of old Berlin kitchens actually have radiators on the wall.

Yes! See above ;)

Yes! It's an unholy mess now, but I'm happy to show it, too. Maybe once I clean it up? ;)

We don't have a dryer.

Regular plastic counters... We used oak planks from a hardware store, just like the ones from ikea but a little deeper because of our kitchen measurements.

Good tip, thanks!

Apparently the best vents are embedded in the stove. Unless you've got actual access to the chimney or the outdoors with your hood, it's mostly for show... But my hhusband is anal retentive about changing filters, so I think we're ok (we don't really fry or do much "dirty" cooking).

Ooh yes to the larger table (one day!). But I'm worried about a rug. Won't it get super filthy?!

We used Tolmien. They were fine. I'd also recommend Synanom.

We don't have a dryer - just an old, reliable Privileg washer...

The holes were filled with sealant/putty. It's gray, not cream, so it's not perfect, but it's better than empty holes. :)

You have to treat wood counters to keep them from getting stained (from water, lemons, anything). I love the way they look and feel, so I'm happy with them as a counter top where I'm working (kneading, chopping etc). But near and around the sink, I want to be able to splash water without worrying about the wood staining AND I want to be able to wipe the counters down A LOT without worrying about the wood staining or getting warped or whatever. Wood isn't *that* sensitive, but it's far more sensitive than, say, plastic, which is what we had in the old place and which I kind of miss for its easiness and simplicity...

I speak English with Hugo! Max speaks to him in German (and some English). My mom in Italian. German is definitely his first language (his daycare and my mom-in-law also are all German all the time).
