Mike & the Ameya Kitchen Project

 

IMG_4123The preferred stove of Ameya is definately one fueled by wood heat.  After a week of cooking in a hot smokey kitchen, we were determined something could be done to help with the smoke.

Mike worked alongside Pastor Francisco and a local constuction expert to come up with a plan, and then we went to buy materials.

The process for making a new top was really pretty simple, but also very interesting.

And within a day (minus the drying time) our new stove top and chimney modifications were complete!

Reflections from Mike:  I really enjoyed working with Pastor Francisco & Maritza to re-design the stove to hopefully overcome some of the challenges they face on a daily basis. Where there is wood fire, there will be lots of smoke, so getting it up and out was our goal.
