As you can see from the photos, I hadn’t finished addind the trim work around the windows. The cabinets that these replaced were in really poor shape. When we bought the house, the cabinet doors actually had holes cut through them. To this day my wife and I don’t know the purpose for the holes but we’re both glad that we took the time to make home made cabinets.

This project was esentially to rebuild the entire kitchen, which involved taking out EVERYTHING, including the floor covering, and starting from scratch. We built new lower counters, pantry, island, and overhead cabinets out of maple and finished them with clear poly. All were custom built to fit appliances, and the pantry goes from floor to ceiling.

Great job!

Top notch cabinets. The entire kitchen layout really works well and the trim ties it all together. Great work.

As one who took on a similar job, I can truly appreciate the magnitude of this project. I love your work.
The kitchen looks great. Doesn’t it feel like a completely new house?
