Every Nook and Cranny

This picture was taken before we started doing any work on the house. It's in the part of the kitchen that used to be a porch, but was closed in by a previous owner.  If you look closely by the electric meter (yes, the electric meter was INSIDE when we first moved in), you can see some of the original siding.

To the left of where I am standing to take this photo is the main part of the kitchen.  The door you are looking at leads to the world's tiniest bathroom -- just big enough for a toilet.  

And that is one of the greatest mysteries of our house.  As you can see in this picture I took while we were replacing the windows a few years ago, the window casings in that bathroom match the original casings elsewhere.  So back in the day, did the inhabitants have to access this toilet from outside?!?!?

As part of the kitchen remodel, we ripped out the wall to the bathroom and built a breakfast nook.  Here it is in process.  The square in the bench is actually a drawer the runs length of the bench, but the front panel hasn't been put on it yet.  Since the original house was built without closets, I am determined to add as much storage as humanly possible.
