We bought our house in 2006. In 2010 we decided to remodel the kitchen, on a tight budget.
Aiming for a craftsman style, I built new doors and drawer faces for the existing cabinets, knocked a wall down and wrapped an LVL Beam in some pine, built an “island” (more of a peninsula, really) and put in a hardwood floor.
The doors and drawer faces I did myself. The rest I had help from family members.
I used pine with birch plywood panels. I don’t think we’re staying in this house forever, otherwise I would’ve used a more durable wood.
This is my fifth project ever. At this point I remember wishing I could build something simple for a change, like a 3 board footstool, or… a spoon.
