That's informative. The 'fridge is actually across the hall from the cooktop, which helps the arrangement somewhat. That which I determined to be the 'fridge is the location of the ovens.

What is the total square footage of the heated space?

The restoration is amazing. I'm not so sure that Lautner's kitchen would have been white. Black and white photography can be deceptive.

Nick Waterhouse video...The eclectic identity and fantasy of the millennial male. Dress preppy, use a shoe horn, play the blues through a vintage Fender amp and live in a Lautner!

Ironically, the architectural equivalent of his fashion choices would probably be a two story brick colonial. He talks about his love of all things "classic", while preening in a futuristic work of architecture.

The night lighting is fantastic.
