Started this kitchen several months ago, but kept getting put on the back burner to make way for paying jobs. Did what I could on weekends, and evenings, but I don’t seem to get as much done as I once did LOL. The Kitchen is made of QSWO, and done in the Arts and Crafts style to match the house I Installed it in. The house was built in the 1850s and remodeled in the 1930s. Most of the original trim remains, but the kitchen left a lot to be desired, so I built a kitchen fitting to the time of the last remodel. Everyone says its way too nice for a rental property but I think the house is deserving. Thanks for looking, BTW I added a picture of the kitchen before I started and an exterior pic of the house.

man, what a difference!
I’m surprised the sink wasn’t in front of the window before. makes me wonder if they moved it there when they remodeled it in the 30s. This is so much better! The QS grain is awesome.

Nice house too.
