The High Chaparral
The Kitchen

      The kitchen has a short wall that hides the view from the dining room.  Beyond that wall the kitchen appears to extend further towards the back of the house than the dining room to include shelves, preparation area, and a large cook stove with range hood. It also has to extend further back than the dining room or it would be inhabiting the same space as the office. The kitchen is large enough to have several tables in it, one by the short wall, one in the center of the room and a wash-up table in one corner. 

      Even though it is under the short upstairs, it appears to have soaring high ceilings with hanging ceiling lamps.  (Leif Erickson after all is 6' 4".)  There are only two episodes that I can think of where we spend any significant time in this room and they are the two shown below.  If you know of other episodes with good kitchen shots, let me know.

1. The kitchen with the dining room door to the right, the stove on the left 
and various pantry shelves and preparation space in between.
