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.
