My bathroom and kitchen remodel
 
1948 duplex

Was a lot of work for such a small bathroom, but I think it turned out great. Let me know what you think and if you have any questions.

$1300

Here is the kitchen remodel for the upper unit that I rent out.

Very Nice Work.

That whole kitchen cost you $2400, including Cabinets and Appliances?

Jeez, where do you find deals like that?

Cause man, if I could replace all the cabinets in my home, or even just the doors/drawers for under $5000, I'd be all over that like a fat kid on a pack of Smarties.

Cabinets Hobo $ 950.00

Nice looking remodel, and good choice in beer too!

wishicould 03-04-2009 06:05 PM

Wow. great work, and I personally love the look of both.

Nice work! I used the same counter tops in my kitchen. Lowe's, IIRC, right?

(My walls are red now.)

I'm impressed to see the scribe molding around the cabinets. Five years on, and you can still see the shims and gaps around the edges of mine.

I am impressed. So much done with so little money. Good job.

What brand and color are those tiles? I went searching around and found them at Home Depot by DalTile. HD doesn't carry the Artic White color, just standard white which is slightly border creame/beige. What price per sq/ft if you dont mind me asking? We've been looking to do these subway tiles with similar black trim with hex 2x2 floors. My wife loves the outcome of work.

The black tiles I got from Home Depot. The white ones I got from Menards (not sure if you have those where you live) and got them on sale - think it was $20 a case of 100 tiles. Next time Im there, I'll check out what the brand name is on the tile and make another post.

Yeah, that sounds about right. The box of 100 pcs was 22.xx at HomeDepot. Do you recall if yours was a brighter/ultra/artic/whiter than white(lol), white color?
