This is an update long over due. Finally finished the vast majority of the year and a half project. Lots of demolition work, complete re-wiring and plumbing, insulation, drywall, painting and cabinet making and installation. And the counter top is also homemade except the slab on the island cart, which we got from a granite shop from their cut off selection.
Still have to do the crown mold and install the under cabinet lighting which is pre-wired so that shouldn’t take long, famous last words.
Used every last piece of quarter sawn oak, once the transition pieces are done for the three door ways there will literally be no full board left, only a handful of cut offs. All the exposed finish is Waterlox Original and the boxes are all 3/4” pre-finished maple plywood, big time saver there. Inset doors and drawers to keep the look of the old house.
Now we are thinking of doing a shallow pantry along the wall to the right of the bathroom door, probably in quarter sawn cherry, just for a little different look. My wife is excited about finally getting to this point and is already adding to the list of projects she wants next.
I just added a couple of before renovation pics, just to give the job some perspective.
