WRT "How Necessary is That Conventional Oven", I submit that it is certainly very possible and plausible to prepare very excellent baked meals w/o one.

Indeed, MIL has been making do without one for years. SIL made the downstairs into an inlaw apt., but could not get a permit to put in a second kitchen. As long as they left the range out, it was OK, so they used a counter top convection oven instead.

We may wind up doing the same thing at the cabin in the long run. The lower level is much bigger than upstairs, and we could have a 1br apartment up with a two bedroom down. I have not yet checked into legality to do this, since that could change by the time we decide it's a go, but we have a three bedroom septic and a bath up and down, so it wouldn't be too hard to do.

In the meantime, we are going to make downstairs into a game room, with full bath, bar/kitchenette and sleeping area. Picked up a 7' long well built air hockey table last night at auction for $65! It was too big for most people to find a little nook in their house to put it, so we got quite the bargain. Gotta love auctions!

continuing to look for a good ping pong table and Foosball, but probably going to skip the billiards
