I finished a kitchen remodel a couple years ago and I’m finally getting around to posting the results. This was a major redo. We tore out everything down to the studs, floor joists and even removed an old chimney in one corner.
I leveled the floor with sistered 2×6s and laid the floor myself and designed and built all the cabinets and countertops. All red oak with oak flooring used as the field in all the doors. This is flooring that was in original wire tied bundles in the back of an old lumber yard. I bought it almost 30 years ago and finally found the right use for it.
A couple of my favorite things are the 4 foot spice drawer that disappears into the wall and the ceiling treatment over the stairs that lead to the back door.
Having everything custom fit into our tiny 10×11’ kitchen was worth all the effort and time needed to plan and replan until everything fit and we’re still happy with it two years later.
I look forward to any questions or comments.
