E & E Kitchen 2008 January 6, 2012Kitchens2008, down draft stove, Kitchensalex Most new downdraft stoves feature a chimney that rises several inches above the cooktop height when activated. Ideal for large pots and pans. Fir floors are often found in old Portland homes under carpet, vinyl or other floor types. We like to reclaim and refurbished any wood floor, whenever possible. Reduce, reuse, recycle! A brick chimney is purposely left in place in this kitchen, to create a contrast between old and modern.
