We do still have our detached dishwasher in the corner. It currently holds my plants while I wait for spring to roll around so I can purchase a plant stand or two. We seldom use the dishwasher, but it is helpful for when we have large groups of guests. Tim has researched installing a dishwasher. With a full sized dishwasher, we would forfeit 1.5-2 cabinets, yikes! I can't imagine losing two large storage spaces. The alternative would be an apartment sized dishwasher. Unfortunately, these cost almost double! At this point, we just can't justify the cost for as little as we use it. Up next: before and after shots!
