Nice!

I'm pretty sure I have that exact same washing machine, and maybe dryer (can't see enough to tell).

The photo was to show the color of the tile or the wall?

She's more handy than I am, and very creative. But, she has to do majority of my unfinished work since I'm deployed and then moving ASAP once I get back.

We're getting a quote in a few days on new cabinet doors. They will be unfinished so the wife will stain them and add knobs already. They'll come with frost glass. Will be alot cheaper than actually refacing the cabinets. I think I just tried tackling a bigger DIY project than I could handle since it was my first. The tile was easy, remodeling a kitchen for a first timer is not, ha.

Some project's turn out bigger than anticipated that's for sure. Cost way more and take 4 times as much time. Don't give up There is light at the end of the tunnel. dorf dude...

Thanks for the support! It's almost done really.

1. Mount base cabinets
2. Cabinet Doors
3. Patch up ceiling
4. Counter Top
5. Flooring

The wife would mount the base cabinets, but since our cabinets are older than the new ones I just bought, they don't have the same height.

So, cabinet doors are being made, $1200 which isn't bad at all. All top cabinets will have frosted glass in them.

$1200 doesn't sound bad at all. Sounds like you got quite the deal.

Hope it all works out. I'm still toying with the idea of trying to design, plan, draft, build, finish and install my own cabs. Still stuck on the design phase.

What's killing me is that I have a galley-style kitchen, and I want to be able to put the fridge at the back wall, but then I lose a ton of space and have to deal with two blind corner cabs.

Nah. Too expensive. Gotta make use of a shop full of woodworking tools.

I just noticed I haven't taken new pictures of anything, but here are ones that have been on my phone for awhile.

Finished the hall way 2 weeks ago, now just waiting to do the kitchen.


This wife and her mom did this 2 weeks before I got home from my deployment.


I also bought my first motorcycle, so I'm sure that is going to take up a lot of my time now. Also, I'm moving so now I gotta definitely finish so I can rent the house out.

As for weeds go, any way to like "dissolve" them? I used round up and they all died, but I am to lazy to pick them, ha!
