Kitchen remodel


Thanks, a lot has changed in that picture since it has been taken.

I'd be careful taking the shelves down and putting them back up. It could be my paranoia but I'd be worried about the holes getting weakened by taking the screws out and going back in. Perhaps someone with more knowledge will chime in on that.

no Im not going to remove the brackets lol, just the wood, which i havent screwed in yet..this was just a dry fit to make sure it was all gonna look how i want. the brackets are there for good. i sat dishes on there for the picture so i could see how roomy the shelves would be. roomy enough for me! but thanks for your concern, sometimes i do overlook that kind of stuff.

so i got a new baby today! i will finally be able to run the airbrush i got years ago
i thought id follow the 100% rule and find a stud for my next set of shelves right off the bat on either side of the plug...gues that rule is only a 99% rule cause there wasnt one...the stud was set 11 inches from the window. ugh could they be more inconsistent??

i bought the kitchen flooring today..it is a rubber type floor that glues down and has a 20 year warranty, i have to rip up all the old floor to maintain the warranty though so you all should be very happy lol.
Its not the style i wouldve liked but it goes very well with the countertops and the existing oak hardwood that runs through the rest of the house so it will work. all together with glue it was 800.00 fot the 130 square feet. expensive!

That might have a lot to do with the type of jigsaw you had and more so the blade.

its a cheap little skil jigsaw i think meant mostly for scrolling out thin wood and metals..the blade however, i paid 5 dollars for and was specifically for countertops..but its done and we are no worse for the wear...except maybe Louie, who did all the cutting there. He slept in about three and a half hours later than normal today lol!
Heres the faucet i got..Lowes for 198.00

I would use steel L bracket on the wall mounted to the studs. Not the little cheapish brackets but a solid length of steel. Then use 2 down legs on the corners. Just tuck them back a little to be out of the way. dorf dude...

Hi there

i love the wood. I build kitchens and furniture and used salvaged windows and doors where ever I can. i would love to help you with this. Hello to the other gentleman Cocobolo...a fellow islander. I am new to this forum so am not too familiar with how it works. My blogsite is www.daisyexpress.blogspot.com. I am still working on uploading content but you can check out the links in the portfolio. I am also Daisyexpress on facebook. Let me know if you would like my input too but any man from the Gulf Islands will know his stuff. :-) My best, Sheryl
