Speaking of Kitchens.......Old. A mishmash of cabinetry. Doors off for various reasons. New one for matching colors, old stuff, because the last coat of paint never dried and the doors stuck. All gone now. Along with the 7' wide hutch built into the wall on the dining room side. Cool

Some new. Still not done. A little trim to do in the kitchen. Other projects starting. Antique heartpine from North Carolina for the floor. Too bad a lot of it will be covered.

Yeah. It is a nice range. Fisher & Paykel. 36" wide, but counter top depth. So it fits nicely into the cabinetry. Cathy cooks like Betty Crocker. I kid you not. Perfect pie crusts. Great cakes and stuff.

Yes, there are a couple things that are not perfectly level. I don't know how they managed that. But the stove is level. We have an odd doorway also. Too late to do anything about it now. Opened the kitchen up into the dining and living room areas. Range is sitting almost exactly where the chimney was. Didn't do a range hood. But we did add a vent above the cabinets. So if someone burns chilli, we can clear the room out. Laughing

Custom cabinetry from a nearby maker.

Working on the back kitchen now. Little old lady rented the front part of the house. Just a hook on a door separated them. Couple shots just before I got the last of the old cabinets out.

Some of you will notice that the island is shorter than the rest of the countertops. Yep. Bathroom vanity height. The upper cabinets are all 2 inches lower. Makes it easier on Cathy. The island is perfect workstation for her.

Having been through two kitchen remodels (one in our previous house, and one as part of a major construction project in this house), I can say with authority that the best thing about kitchen remodels is completing them. Mrs Carlos Remodel Projects 710492

Nice work, Carlos. I'll bet you're glad it's over. Twisted Evil

The new kitchen is almost completed. Glad it's done. I love the flooring. Antique heartpine is very affordable. I sanded it and used Sutherland Welles tung oil finish on the floor. We have a lot of room for food preparation now. But a lot of projects to go before it's all done and the house back to normal.

I don't know about how you socialize, but with my group, everyone just ends up in the kitchen. Especially during winter. If I manage to design a house, the kitchen and dining area are going to be very inclusive to ease this phenomenon a little...

She is loving the kitchen. I just ordered another 90sqft of 5" face antique heart pine today to complete that utility room. Well, all of that room except the area right at the steps to the outside and basement. I do not wish to change the height of the top step for safety reasons. So I will sand that old glue covered oak down and refinish it. We got the price on the shower unit today for the new bathroom project. Two weeks and it will be here. I haven't been cellaring much tobacco lately.

Good news. Shower unit parts came in. Bad news. Large marble looking piece came in as pieces. Another week for it. Just as well. We have been busy. Utility room projects. New closet in an old house with little closet space. Access panel to the loft from the inside so all the wiring above can be changed. Also to get access to run the bathroom vents. Previous access was from outside and a dance on a ladder, some tiptoeing on a 1x5 and entry though a window. Scary!. Tried to show the knockdown effect we did on the walls. And everything else within range of the sprayer. New windows! sunny Painting starts tomorrow. Gotta get that done so we can lay the new heart pine flooring.

Floor is down in the new utility room. Sanding now. Finish, at least one coat if not several more will be on when the new washer and dryer come this Friday.

Spectacular work! As Kyle said, this really warms up your kitchen, especially removing those old dour cabinets.

It's nice when it's done. But driving me crazy. Late nights recently sanding that floor. Got to get a seal coat, and as many finish coats as I can by Friday when the washer and dryer show up.
