Kitchen Version 2.0


I got some pretty good feed back on the last kitchen I posted, but it was done by the time I posted any pics. I think this time I might post a few pics as I go and maybe some body might have some good ideas.

Broad over view is my client just bought this house for the land and location but hates the kitchen. She wants a real chef's kitchen with a better view and an open feeling.

Before pics





Current pics after 3.5 days of work, Demo'd and ceramic tile removed.





Had a bit of a mice problem......





I have heard that artificial sweeteners cause cancer in lab rats, but I found out what Stevia does to house mice......



That was in 1 stud bay..........

Do you have a plan to put it back together?

Yep, gonna cut the slab and add utilities for an island cook stove. All new cabinets. Going to build out some window details with glass shelves in the framed openings to display some glass ware and add some faux beams to the door openings for a more country feel.

Not much to add as far as looks, but I said I'd try and keep the thread updated. Ceiling is skimmed coated, patches are ready and it all gets textured tomorrow. Then paint and tile hopefully the day after. Utilities are in the slab.

I love the 4" surface mount led from Halo. They fit inside a standard round box. They look very similar to can lights. They have as much light. (in my opinion...700 lumens) They are much easier to find room to fit them in.

That and led under cabinet strips.

Re: Kitchen Version 2.0


So, the walls were opened up and headers installed because the client wanted an open feeling. She is also wanting a country/mission style kitchen. So instead of just open holes, I made a few faux Windows today that we will put glass in.


Artist rendering approved by customer.



Put it in to sketchup for a cut list.



Then started sawing. Kregin' it together from the back side.



Assembled with jambs to just slide in the holes. The double is actually built as a single, I ran a saw kerf down the center to make it look like a double window.



The back sides all got a second layer that left 1/2" reveal brad nailed to the fronts. I'll make some 1/2" x 1/2" molding to hold the glass in and tack them after the paint.

Got the wall and ceiling painted out, will do the cut in work when the trim is done.



Started setting tile yesterday afternoon. First time with a leveling system, don't think I'll ever go back!

Yeah, so, I totally failed at Jeeping this updated as I went, but it's been mostly done for 6 weeks. We were just waiting on the backsplash tile to come in so I could finish up. Anywho, here's a few finished pics.
