New kitchen construction begins for Rotterdam Junction Firehouse
News from WXXA:

After Hurricanes Irene and Lee tore through the area, the Rotterdam Junction Firehouse became the anchor for its community.

“Hundreds of meals were prepared out of [the Rotterdam Junction Firehouse] kitchen for people who didn’t have kitchens at the time, and we’re trying to do something good for the heroes who responded to that aftermath,” said Daryl Zbrzezny, a volunteer with the Leadership Tech Valley Class of 2012.

For weeks after the devastation, volunteer firefighters worked tirelessly and used their 30-year-old kitchen to keep people fed.

“Flood waters, you know, came right up to the doors of this building, and this building served as a hub for the community during that time,” said Zbrzezny.

“I’m just grateful that somebody else is revamping the kitchen for us,” said Albert Van Antwerp, Safety Officer for Rotterdam District One. “It was time for an upgrade.”

After spending months fundraising, the Leadership Tech Valley Class raised $ 14,000 for the project. The goal is $ 40,000.

“We’re going to do the must-dos, and as funding comes in, we’re going to keep extending it,” said Zbrzezny.

The must-do renovations include new cabinets, new appliances, improved floors, walls, and ceilings. The big goal is to get a new electronic sign out front with a generator, an important tool used to communicate with the public.

In this kitchen: The Zepedas moved into their Northwest Side home 41 years ago.

The space: About 10 by 18 feet, including the breakfast area.

On the surfaces: When wallpaper on the backsplash began peeling, Rosie replaced it with glass mosaic tiles in iridescent shades of green, gold and brown.

Silestone counters, installed about 10 years ago, have proven durable and easy to care for. Like granite, the quartz composite stands up to hot pans. Unlike granite, it doesn’t have to be sealed to protect against stains.

Refinishing freshened the home’s original cabinets, which have arches on the doors to complement arched doorways inside the home and Spanish-style details on the façade.

Tile floors gleam like new, thanks to a professional cleaning about a year ago. Rosie admits she’s a fanatic about cleanliness, especially…………… continues on San Antonio Express
