I've now done every room in this house except the Kitchen, so that's my next project.

I'm gutting everything out, and building new cabinets, i'm also changing the configuration a little bit.

I plan on upper corner cabinets and I'm going to use blind corner shelving on the lower corners.

I plan on moving the stove to the center of the room as it sits off center right now.

I don't have enough room to build all the cabinets and do it all at once.
So I plan on building all the new upper cabinets, then pulling out the old ones, paint the walls and ceiling, and installing the new uppers.
Then repeat the process for the lower cabinets.

I hope to be done before winter.

Here's the way it looks now. The doors are all gone because I couldn't get them clean, so I sent them to the dump....

We had a drop ceiling in our kitchen and during the remodel, had it removed. The increased height is really nice, feels roomy. During that process, we installed cans with LED lighting. Great project.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Look forward to following along. Looks like you have a pretty good plan on your layout also.

I'll be watching for updates. Renos are a lot of work be can be really fun and very satisfying.

Default kitchen remodel

We bought this old house and redid all of it. This is our work in the kitchen.
Pic # 1 A shot of the old kitchen. It was only as wide as the space between the cabinets and the refrigerator. There was a 4 foot space opening into it from the living room.
Pic#2 This is me tearing out the old cabinets. I took the whole room down to the studs and ripped out most of the floor to level it and to replace the plumbing, and gas lines.
Pic#3 This is the room striped out and shows the studs of the existing wall between then kitchen and the living room.
Pic#4 This is a shot of the finished kitchen showing how I pushed the wall out to make a breakfast area, and to enlarge the whole room.
Pic#5 This one shows the kitchen from another angle, and the beam I but up to replace the load bearing wall. The corner cabinet lower has a turn style type of shelves to get at everything stored there.
The center bar and the cabinet tops are 12" marble. The center bar is double 3/4 ply cross grained to give support to the over hang.
Note: My wife Sandra and I lived in the house while doing our remodel and had a micro wave, a electric grill, and a electric fry pan and a coffee pot. We slept on cots for several months. After living through this, we knew we were going to make it together.
