kitchen backsplash – the prequel

backsplash02
Our dear Instagram followers already know about our plans regarding the kitchen back spalsh (or splashback…!? always confused which one is right!?)… we are trying to built one out of beautiful old windows!
(we won’t have wall units in the kitchen so we can use the whole wall from the counter to the ceiling!)
There’s a(nother) small house which belongs to Martin – but unfortunately it’s in a really bad condition and we have to knock it down. The good news is, that we are going to recycle a lot of the materials from this house in the renovation of the treehouse. This does not only make sense in a ecological way but will also save us some expenses.

The windows where originally installed in some sort of hall/conservatory which you’ll find in a lot of the old houses around here.

I thought it might be really hard to demount them without breaking the window panes or the frame. But it was pretty easy thanks to a very simple construction. They where basically just mounted with small ledges. We removed those and could easily lift them out of the frames (with 3 people and a hammer).

TA-DA! 
Keep my fingers crossed that they will fit in the treehouse-kitchen! … let’s see.

Next to the house is a beautiful garage, where I found time to pretend driving my favorite tractor! Cute 1950ies beauty in red!
