Blake & Bulls Great Kitchen Show Off Competition - week 1 winner!

Last week we opened our doors to entires for our Great Kitchen Show Off! competition. We had so many lovely entries and as always we were warmed by your enthusiasm and lovely homes. 

CONGRATULATIONS! to Jim who shared his French kitchen with us. Jim by his own admission, is an all out range cooker 'geek'! And his journey to the perfect homely kitchen has been quite an adventure.

Jim's Kitchen used to be a basement, with soil floors and all the house services exposed. They wanted a range cooker as the main feature of the kitchen. They bought a second hand oil fired model. The cooker was stripped down ready to transport at almost half a tonne. It lay in the basement for two years whilst the rest of the house was being made habitable.
Building the kitchen involved pouring a new floor and a plinth to mount the range cooker on. Once this was done it was time to assemble the oven, It transpired that the French fuel oil was not compatible with the AGA burner. Not to be defeated Jim purchased an electrical conversion kit!. Jim had a fully working range cooker at the heart of his home within 3 days! Hats off to you Jim and enjoy your e-voucher!

Katy Boys

Katy is a rural girl at heart. She loves long walks, home cooking, paddling in rivers, warm fires and socks and stomping in leaves with her children. After studying ‘drawing stuff’ at university in Bath, Katy spent 10 years selling wares and managing folk at Habitat in Bath. Welcoming children into her world prompted her to return to drawing things, people and places from home. This led her to us at Blake & Bull and the rest is history. She draws our stuff, provides cuddles for the office dog, and is here to chat to you lovely lot.
