Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job (Part III)


Finally got to install that washer dryer cabinet. A stacked Blomberg set. I've struggled with the design because of the lack of space and odd (stupid, thoughtless) setup that they left me to deal with. The dryer vent to the outside was low to the ground on the left. The dryer is on top and the vent port was right in front of the water box in the wall. The soffit came out 29", if I had 30" it would have made my life a lot easier. There was a pipe in the wall that was more outside the wall and right at the right gable of the cabinet. Those were my initial worries.

When we got there we found the floor from the left side of the cabinet to the right dropped 3/8" over 37". The floor rose 1/8" from the front of the cabinet to the rear. The left hand wall tipped out by 7/8". Arrrrrrggg!!!!!

We adjusted for all that which took quite some time. Mounted the doors and screwed the cabinet to the wall and ceiling and adjusted the doors. I had it all adjusted in the shop but for whatever reason I had to do a major adjustment on one of the pocket door slides. Got that all done and the cabinet was installed.

Then the next 2 hours we had to deal with getting the washer/dryer setup with the vent hose, water lines and electrical. Had to flip the outlet over for starters. I used this vent system which worked out really good for our situation.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1


We put it all together and hoped for the best. BTW, I didn't sleep well at all last night because I was so unsure that we could pull it off. So we pushed the set into the cabinet and about half way in we assessed what was there. Had to get a ladder to see what was going on, adjusted a few things and pushed it in the rest of the way. The dryer vent 90º was rubbing against the rubber water hose but everything fit and the doors worked perfectly. We're going to get braided SS hoses and a 45º adapter to get the hose out of the way from the 90º duct. We'll be happy after that.

Then we put the cabinet insert together, cut a slot for the dryer vent hose and electrical cord, slipped it into place and we were done for the day. Still have to go back and install the sink cabinet. Took a lot longer than expected, but IT FIT!!. So I was really happy.

Looks nice. I like the way you faked the double doors in front of the washer/dryer.

Leo,

Looks great.

Dumb question time;

Could you have set the washer/dryer, connected it, then slid the the cabinet shell in place then the insert in place?

No. If you look at the bottom of the cabinet you'll see a pc of 1/2" oak plywood. I needed to put that there to stabilize the bottom dimension of the cabinet and to provide a dado for the insert to slide into so it would stay put.

So the cabinet is locked in place. The washer/dryer is slid into place after connecting the vent, water and electrical. Then the insert is slid into place. Without the insert in there there is about 4 1/8" of space for wiggle room. The cabinet itself is pretty flimsy because it has no back, no bottom rail on the face frame and the left side is only 1/2 the depth of the right side. It's very reliant on being screwed to the wall and floor to make it rigid.

If the floor and walls weren't so out of wack, this would have been so much easier. My world for plumb, level and true.

Thanks Leo.

Everyone’s world dealing with lack of plumb, level, square. New 6 mill home, a wall is 1-1/4" out of square in 27", 3 mill home I just measured all the walls getting casework are out of plumb and out of square, some by more than 2" in 8’.

That's why it's nice to do your own framing.

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job (Part III)


Dealt with all the details and upgrades to the washer/dryer cabinet. Traded out the rubber hoses that came with the machine to braided SS hoses. Added a 45º adapter to the hot and cold water spigots to make room for the vent 90º duct that was touching one of the hoses because of the placement of the water and drain box. Drilled some 1/8" holes through the water box and out the back wall so we can put an access to the valves because there is no way to turn them on or off currently. No real planning from the GC on this.

Then onto the sink cabinet. Floor was still not at all plumb, 1/8" higher on the right and another 1/8" from the front to back. Scribed it to the floor, couple of screws through the washer/dryer cabinet into the left style of the sink cabinet and a few more in the wall. Last thing to do was the end of the run panel. Scribed to the floor, removed the baseboard and reinstalled it tight to the panel and then a total clean up.

Still need to put a small molding to the ceiling and make a panel for the small refrigerator.

You need a crew of Brazilians, they at least get it within an 1/8".
