KITCHEN COUNTER BLOCKING FENG SHUI OF LANDSCAPE

For my landscape ( & sanity) the Feng Shui of the kitchen must change. Kitchen counters form an 'L' blocking easy access to the backdoor & garden. Disliked, strongly, for years it's now unbearable. Changing the kitchen will change my life. Bold? No. Energy must flow easily, vanishing threshold.
.
The stupid kitchen counter can't block me from my garden anymore. How's that for a mission statement?
.
It's ridiculous what's involved removing 4.5' of kitchen counter:
* Replacing the floor
* Replacing old appliances
* New counter tops
* New sink (I like the one above)
* Reconfiguring the ceiling
* Painting
* New light fixtures
.
Timeline for action is winter. I've begun getting quotes & sourcing materials.
.
Garden clubs, occasionally, meet in my garden for a lecture, tour & box lunch. But I haven't sought greater numbers. Why? The ridiculous kitchen.
.
It's time to live my vanishing threshold; house, garden, life.
.
Sink, above, from House Beautiful magazine, I think.

Garden & Be Well, XO Tara

Good luck, you sound determined!

Not quite certain what you want to remove: the counter to the right of the sink?

Love reading your blogs - - - I think this is the first I've responded too, though.

Can't wait to try Tara Turf at our new place: an old Texas dogtrot farmhouse in the woods!
