Kitchen Remodel

Project by JAGWAH posted 289 days ago 1915 views 0 times favorited 8 comments Add to Favorites Watch

This is my own kitchen and like all my construction projects I try to use what it might look like to use a cad program to see what it might look like before I start.

While I would normally have built the cabinets, these are RTA from an online supplier. The quality of these cabinets were as I read and hoped to actually be. they are clear coated 1/2” birch boxes. The face frames and doors are solid alder with a cherry type stain. The drawers and lower shelf pull outs are dovetailed. The doors are all European hinges and the drawers are under mount full extension glides. The doors and drawers are also soft close. The countertop is a quarts product.

We got lucky that the assured and expected termite damage wasn’t there. Another fine discovery was that the needed 3/4” gas line was already in place behind the wall. I added an extension to this gas line to the outside of the house for a future BBQ build. And I also added an extra frost proof hose bib outside the kitchen window.

All in all a good project that managed to be only 10% over budget, this mostly due to the wife’s finish choices. Ya go figure.

The pictures of the boxes show in a small way my only irritation with these cabinets. They were delivered by hand off truck in my driveway and street. When set off the driver booked without helping me take the 84 boxes to the garage. And to top it all off none of the identifying boxes mached the erdering nomenclature. But all was well with few issues.

Jag, what a nice change for you. The design and finish are very clean and elegant looking.

Wow, the CAD ‘before’ graphic is a dead-on match with what you built. Very impressive, because even though that’s the way it’s supposed to go, we are talking about a renovation. :-)

Dropping cabinets to the driveway… nice touch, right? Geez.

The only thing I see in the pics that strikes as being off is the size of the gap between the closed doors. Seems kinda big. I’m sure the hinges are adjustable in that regard, as that spacing shouldn’t be more than an eighth inch.

Great job, Jag.

You are right Smitty the gap is a bit big, the glass doors being the worse. These hinges don’t have the full movement I need, a sign of a to simple a hinge design. I plan replacements.

aw, rats on the ‘no adjustment’ part. Yeah, start with the glass doors and go from there I guess. Still an incredible renovation!
