The lodge remodelling plan was apparently put together by someone who had heard about kitchens, but never actually been in one. Nowhere near enough power outlets, floor drains that are trip hazards, very non-ergonomic layout. However, the old fridge and freezer units have been replaced with closet-sized walk-in cooler and freezer, there's a dishwasher area all to itself, the floor has been leveled and resurfaced.
So, not quite the clusterfox I had been led to expect, for which I am truly grateful, amen. Even with aching feetses.
