1935 cottage, new kitchen


I'm using part of the Christmas break to get most of the structural work done on this project, which involves a new kitchen addition to replace the current 1950's one that is too small and has really had its day... the old kitchen will become a dining room. I have the cabinets & tops from a nice kitchen that my uncle replaced during renovations a couple years back, so the new space has been designed so that (hopefully) the existing cabinets fit without too much modification
3 days work got the foundations & subfloor done, including inspection of the footings before the concrete pour. I will carry on after Christmas.

Nice project--where are you located? Most places in the U.S.A. do not allow buried posts---interesting to see that style of construction.

I'm in New Zealand--this is standard construction practice here--the posts are treated for ground contact & set in concrete. Most new construction uses slab on grade nowadays--less labour intensive to construct & closer to ground level, which is important in heavily built up areas, where shading of neighbouring properties by buildings can be an issue.
