With the table, the kitchen looked like this:
However, on further investigation I realised that a Tudor kitchen would not have this kind of fireplace. They would have an inglenook. By this time I was so confident that I made an inglenook with instructions from a book. It was a lot of work, but I am very pleased with the result. I removed the old fireplace (and later used it elsewhere) and built in a whole new wall of cardboard. I had to sacrifice three centimetres of space behind this wall, but otherwise I would have to break the outer wall of the house.
