Over here in the cooking area, we've got a couple of issues. The first is that the hood that they had wasn't working, so, they installed this auxiliary fan. We're gonna get rid of the fan, give them a brand new hood that's gonna work and patch up the area where the fan used to be using bricks that they already have. Then the wall will be painted so that the back splashes consistently, you don't have all those competing colors. And then back here, check this out. Can you guess what this is? Look at this. It's the electrical panel for the entire house and right now, it's not so well disguised with this giant chunky piece of wood. We're gonna make it more streamlined and give them a message board that's magnetic so they can put their recipes up here, while she's cooking, she could take a look, it'll work out great. And then, on the side of the refrigerator, we're gonna turn it into a magnetic spice rack and put all of her spices here so that when she's cooking, she can go straight from the spice rack to the recipe, and it's gonna work out great.
