    I don't mean to hog this section, but I am now going to re-do my kitchen. I realize this isn't a garage or workshop, perse....so oh well.

    Here is the before:

    First order of business is to tear the 2 walls down:

    [​IMG]

    This will start tomorrow! Roommate wants to help. so....she is.

    I have the new layout, need to upload it I guess. Basically the fridge is getting move to the where the pantry is, pantry is moved over, built-in oven is ditched in favor of a slide in range with micro. cabinets will now extend past where the fridge is currently and almost to the glass sliding door. there will be a huge island where the 2 walls currently sit as well.

    Budget: 10K.
    Estimated cost: 12K.

    I am going to go over budget already, and know it. Cabinets alone are $4600 and tops are $3500. I have to redo the floors on the whole upper floor, minus the bedrooms. I guess that isn't considered part of the kitchen, even though it still has to be done though. Those three things alone will hit the budget of 10K though :( Oh well. Will update periodically with pictures of the progress!

    ive seen ikea stuff, no thanks. i work construction so i see what is good and what isnt. if i wanted construction grade cabinets i would be looking at around 2500-3000 for the same setup.

    The ones I looked at were better quality than the thin cheap cabinets my builder put in. Good luck on your kitchen update. Look forward to your progress picks.

    i cant find much info on the cabs on their website...looks like the sides are only offered in particle board though, instead of plywood.

    I got it prepped for tomorrow. decided to take off the trim and wood. then I figured id just hit the drywall once with the hammer. well, i couldn't stop myself :(

    got the roommate helping:

    once the walls were all down I was left with some outlets and switches that I had to re-route. Luckily I know a good electrician ;)

    You can see the new set of switches to the left that I cut in...kinda. Put three, one for the fan, one for the cans that aren't there yet and one for the cans in the living room that arent there yet :) The dining room switch got moved to near the sliding door because I didn't think it made sense to switch it all the way by the hall. The pendants over the island will be switched at the island. :

    I also got new batteries for my better camera so the wide angles will look more normal now. Tomorrow I need to pick up some drywall and start filling in the gaps on the ceiling.

    I have to. I am going with a slide-in range so the cook top and built-in oven arent going to work. Also switching to gas instead of crapelectric. Fridge may stay until funds allow a new one.

    I know I would. However, they are also extremely expensive :( I am going to leave a 220v hook up along with gas and 110v too. I will have all kinds of options then.

    Roy, just make sure you take a ton of pictures. You won't regret it. We took a year (did it ourselves) to remodel our kitchen, living room, and dining room. We still look back at the pictures and are amazed at what a mess we had. We did similar to what you did by tearing out a wall. Our budget was $18,000 but spent $4,000 over budget by pretty much redoing the electrical in the whole house. I guess I don't really have a good picture of the finished product.

    Hey Roy,
    What's up with the sheet rock over the lath? Had the plaster already been taken off or did they sheet rock over the lath? Just curious. When I done our kitchen I had taken 6100 lbs of plaster to the dump. Had to shovel it out of my two pickups and trailer. What a pain...by far the worst part of the remodel.

    Well, finally got around to ordering the cabinets and they came in the other day. So...I started to tear out the current ones and re-pipe it all.

    Not sure on the stove I want yet, so there will be a gas line, 110v and 220v box there for it :) Thought about putting a hood over the oven and moving the microwave, but I would be losing too much upper cabinet space near the dishwasher, and then shelling out another 1000 for a hood. Oh well. Luckily I think I can vent the microwave outside though the plumbing wall which is open to the attic. sweet.

    I need to plumb the fridge water line and gas line in tonight. Tomorrow I am going to look at wine fridges for my island so I can build that, and the rest of the appliances. The drywallers are supposed to come on saturday. It's the one thing that I can't do and is way easier to just hire someone.

    I need to pick up the tile floor and lay that down sometime next week, and then slap the cabs up. I was going to give the cab. work to a laid off carpenter I know, but he seems too busy now so I may just do it myself.

    Then order the tops, get the appliances in....and the wood floors. So, hopefully I can start cooking in 2 weeks, 3 weeks at the latest.

    nice work on the kitchen. I am going to be buying my first house today, if my bid is accepted.. the place has green plastic counter tops.. I want to get rid of them.. but ill need to wait since the place has some other issues to be taken into account first.. does anybody have a good site they recommend that has how-tos on general home repair?
