For years, Lena Randle supervised the Ladue Post Office--the one underneath the Clayton Post Office, not the abbreviated version behind the Mister Ed door at Ladue Pharmacy. All day long, she hiked up and down the steps of the building on Maryland. Eventually, she needed minor surgery to repair some broken bones in her toes.

Four kitchens, each in need of an overhaul. One had a stove dating back to the World's Fair. Another, cabinets from the Nixon era. All required architectural revision, not to mention new cabinets, sinks, appliances and flooring. Each of the owners stuck it out, braving plaster dust and banging hammers, moving dorm fridges into sunrooms, dining on microwave fare and washing dishes in the tub. But none have regrets—not for the house camping, and definitely not for the investment in classic, customized kitchens that will last for decades, in terms of both wear and style. more
