Bob N said:What a fantastic job! I really like your choice of materials and color. That kitchen appears very well layed out and like BJ already commented, the pipe in the laundry area is a great idea.
My wife has been after me for the past 2 years to do our kitchen, but I think I am going to farm this one out to professionals. I'm just not up to a job that big and after hearing Corey's adventures, I think I am going to sit this one out on the sidelines
Nice job on your part and thanks for sharing. It really looks good and I'm sure you are very proud.

I don't know man. I had to gut to the walls and to the floor rafters. That was the pits! We had a leak in a wall we didn't know was there. It ruined the subfloors but caught it before it ate on the rafters themselves. First major remodel for me and that one took me 6 months to.. weekends and nights, between business trips and work. I probably have another 6 weeks on the kitchen yet if I can keep my back on the straight and narrow!jfacteau said:funny how we are all different, give me bathrooms in a house all day long !
Golly Gary, I think they look pretty good as is... but I haven't been using them for umteen years!seawolf21 said:Our kitchen is 10.5 ft x 11.8 ft and there is no way I'm going to do it. We have the old Youngstown Metal cabinets from the 40's that the previous owner had glued dark wood paneling on. We really didn't notice them when we bought the house 23 years ago. So after 23 yrs of staring at this junk we are finally going to get them replaced this summer. We also are going to replace the 70's ceiling tiles and the 70's vinyl flooring. I figure for $8,000 we can get whole job done right. Hre are some pics of how it looks now.
