« Part 1: Starting a kitchen Part 2 of Work series Part 3: So I guess we do roofing as well... »

My work is almost done here, just a few pieces that were left behind at the shop. REMINDER—- always triple check that you have everything! It just doesn’t pay off too rush loading and delivering…. At least it isn’t that big of a deal, Massimo can come and finish the tiling and I’ll be back soon to fit another one on the 3rd floor. Speaking of which, I’m off to the shop to finish that one, no time to loose!

Interesting case work.
Why are the pull handles not aligned on the door above the stove hood?

About the handles , I would have to bring all the others up more and there would be a big space ( at least 6 cm)from the bottom of the handle to the bottom of the door and this wouldn’t look very nice. I’ve tried putting them horizontally but I still have to raise them more than I like. Another solution would be to have the cooker hood lower than the cabinets so that all the doors would be the same height but again, esthetically this is even worse. The kitchens we do mostly go in apartments to rent, so the building management just wants something new and clean.

Elliott, You did a great job on the cabinets…except for the cabinet above the stove. The cabinet should have aligned with the others with the hood below. Every person who walks into that kitchen will think that someone (you) made a mistake. I would never accept that as an owner. If I were you I would change it.

I think the cabinets look good as well. Knobs might work to line up the handles on the next apartment.
