I Need Measurements

The kitchen in our new house needs help. Major help.

While we are in limbo I’ve been doing a lot of renovating in my head. Not of my head. But of the house in my head.

Here is what our kitchen looked like when we viewed the house six months ago.


The big debate- Do we find a regular stove and remove some cabinets to put it in or do we buy a terribly expensive wall oven and cooktop to replace the old.

We would have to spend at least twice the amount of the price of a good stove if we stayed with the setup we have now.


I started doing some shopping on Craigslist. I have found a gas cooktop and gas wall oven for a total of $650.

But I am not sure if they will work because I need to get measurements of the current appliances to see if they will fit.

Here are pictures of the ones available-



My realtor is supposed to be getting back to me about a time I can get the measurements. Time is of the essence!!!

Those appliances won’t last long.

What do you think? Is it a good idea to get appliances from Craigslist? They seem legit and I’ve asked lots of questions about them.

Does anyone have any experience with this?
