Renovation Project: New Kitchen - Ongoing


We have just started a complete kitchen remodel. 2 wall taken down and everything moved. I am acting as GC and have some of the work, but found it cost efficient to hire skilled guys where I'm not comfortable. I'll try and load as many pics as I can. My project has a budget of 40 to 45 k. And love doing this kind of stuff.

Looks like a great start. Should be a fantastic kitchen on that budget.

That is a pretty good span, have you checked to see if that is a load bearing wall?

Some more pics. Main wall came down today. this opening was only 4 ft when we started. we made it 13 ft. I installed (2) 14x1.75 micro lam beams in this space to support the ceiling. it is supported by 3 cripple studs on each side. (engineer) only wanted 2 and I didn't think that was enough, so I added 1

That looks great, I like the toe kicks, I have never liked the plain kicks. What type of floor did you install?

Jim, its called Burnt Barnwood. its an engineered harwood floor. 5 in plank. its made in the USA and offered thru www.CarpetOneDFW.com ours is glued down. We looked at hundreds of diff eng floors, and almost went with true 3/4 inch thick hardwoods because I couldn't find any that really felt like real wood floors. Then I finally found these. I am so happy with them.

And as for the toe kicks, We saw those in a magazine and really liked the looked. We had to put the floors down first because of the detail at the bottom of the cabinets, but the clean look I think is better than a floor guy having to cut around all that stuff.
