country house kitchen redo so far .


sort of bored waiting for lower cabinets to arrive , just a few pics so far.
probably wont have any updated pics in a few months . ceiling has skip trowel texture done by hand not sprayed by machine . hard to see it though not sure how to adjust camera .

oh that is how you keep a sink while remodeling kitchen . just use extensions to plumbing .

You could install your backsplash. Oddly enough, I do it before I hang any cabinets.

Couple more pictures of lower cabinets installed , im going to make a sitting bar with some wall cabinets under the soffit on the right . Putting up the backsplash I suppose but haven't picked out a counter top yet so im still undecided on those . thinking of using black appliances then a light counter and backsplash . I have 0 decorating sense and do it on the fly then hope it works .


Anyways I have a few questions if anyone wants to answer them.

Im thinking of putting some 3/8 plywood to bridge the cabinets above the dishwasher for strength but not sure if the washer will fit under it . 33-7/8 - 34 inches high ..

also made a maple window casing not attached yet and want to match the cabinets , I tried seing if I could get some from the cabinet place but was told no they use a bakef on product . i already tried 4 stains and couldn't get the right match . take it to a woodworker or finisher ?

Nope , just a stainless steel under mount unit.

Thanks , now im waiting for my concrete stain to arrive i didn't realize at the place I ordered it from online is having shipping delays due to an accident to an employee or owner .

I could do the floor but want to get countertops on first so I don't scratch the floor by mistake . I think im going to need my engine hoist to help put them in .

I'm considering concrete tops. Keep me posted on how difficult it is.

You asked about the DW height- 34" is optimum. maybe a tad less, but I've "forced" them into 33 1/4" and I don't recommend it, especially on the high end models.
don't forget to put in some anchor points for DW

Hi Oldrivers

I must say I really like the look of the wood banisters on the ceiling. And you're making a really nice old/new style, I really like it!

Keep up the good work!

I would love to see more pics of this.

They make it look easy on the TV but I suspect it is not.

Have the rough countertops done , making them was pretty easy .mixed concrete in 5 gallon buckets so I had to use a slightly wetter mix so the drill could mix it . They say you lose some strength but for how strong concrete is does it really matter on a countertop if some strength is lost , im not parking a 5000lb car on it . if I did it over I would have put more work and time on the corners instead of simply using the tape and caulk method shown on utube . I used the countertop mix 16.00 a 50 lb bag at local menards , 2 sheets of melame 50.00 . 14 bags concrete 224 or so .

would have been less but I screwed up and had to redo 1 part sometimes its not good to work when tired and don't think right .

275 dollars but would have been 210 without screwing up . but getting most any other material which also needs to be installed by a pro I figure 2500 - 3500 so I don't care . don't want granite or that cheap pre made formicas you bolt together .

next is the staining/ finishing part that's sort of what scares me most , also decided to mount sink over instead to hide some of the flaws in concrete around sink opening . .

also used 2 wall cabinets to build sort of a breakfast bar or place to set grocerys etc room divider .
