Colleen Smith, 6'6"

Colleen has a few great ideas - so you are about to get colleen-i-fied!

She loves cooking, but not the pain that comes with bending down to a three foot high counter.  When she asked for suggestions people told her to install taller countertops. Neat, but tough if you live in an apartment or are on a budget.

Colleen has been using her colleenified countertop to bring her work surface up to an ergonomically proper height.  You can see this in the before and after photos and the video.  You should also check out the outtakes on her colleenify blog.

Most of you will not have exactly the same ideal countertop height as she does, so the countertop can be custom made to suit anyone from about 5'9" to 7'0".

These can be made in a variety of heights and widths. Someone who is 6'1" reports it has greatly improved his back pain doing kitchen work and the same will probably be true for any tall woman who comes here.

These are beautifully made by hand of solid maple in Kentucky and can be made to a variety of lengths and widths.  They have rubberized inserts on the feet so they won't mar your real countertop and, if you are tall enough, you can store things under yours.

If you buy one be sure to mention the word colleenified!

Girl look fine tall or not. Live and love your life
I was woundering if their was a chance we could simply talk? I saw the show ( my giant life ). I just thought to say hello, and hope that I here from you. I'm just a simple country boy. Live a simple live. I seen on the show how that guy you met online, just walked off. To me that was really rude. Men like that make good guys look bad. I just felt it was wrong for him to do. Anyway, I hope to hear from you sometime. Mike
First off my name is Brent. I had to get off of all that Facebook media stuff because of things. I can't say I know what it feels to be your height but I can feel and see some of the things you go through. I am like 4 ' tall well when I'm in my wheelchair that is. No, really though I was 5' 11" last time I measured myself. As for where I am going with this. I know what it feels like to have people stare when they don't understand. That's why we have to be strong and help them understand or even grasp the concept of the situation of the life we were give. I can see you have a big heart and you shouldn't change that. God give his toughest battles to his strongest soldiers. Never really understood that true meaning until recently. So with all that said keep on keeping on, you are someone special! Oh also if your ever just want to confide in someone I am a great listener for then most part especially when it matters. Have a great one a stay strong and believe!
