Drywall up with new insulation. I am sanding the cabinets and plan to restain and fix the broken ones. The picture with cabinets is a trial run to see if we liked the layout and planned for recessed lights and a u shape kitchen.

Glad to hear everything is running smooth...
A little hint.
Make sure the insulation is flush with the framing before trying to install the ceiling, if not it will give you trouble. Make sure to mark all your rafters on your wall first.
Here's few tips.

Good points, I won't be doing the tear down but my DH will be.:
And he needs to add furring strips every 12 inches for support and extra nailing. Using 1/4 drywall for ceiling per manufactured recommendations.

DH....darling husband

I took home some cabinet doors and drawers. I plan to sand and restain to match cabinets a reddish stain, oak with cherry wood.
it is finally coming along.
that cabinet in the picture needs repairing. Although I plan to get some beadboard in oak and. Add to areas that need a face board.

Rustic look. Red oak finish
The cabinets were a yellowish oak and I like the oak grain and rich red oak look. It isnt trendy for this decade...but for a rustic cabin..I love the look of rich wood grain. Hey that style will come back.

that is the man cave or shop.

too cold to stain or varnish outside so the basement is the place - we have a ventilation fan and vent.

pretty much the garage and basement are the work shops.

if my husband was doing the stripping of wood, sanding and staining it would of looked better... this is my first time.

I think you're doing a wonderful job! Keep plugging away and you'll be done in no time.

I wonder why the manufacturer recommends 1/4" drywall for the ceiling.

I believe 1/4 inch drywall is lighter. We have used 1/2 lightweight drywall in a smaller rooms like the bathroom. The kitchen is quite bigger expanse. idk why they recommend it, maybe someone here knows.

I should of taken a picture of the attic space, it is quite interesting how they make mobile homes or manufactured homes. Light enough to be moved strong enough to withstand being a house on the move.

I am so ready to have the kitchen done, this weekend we plan to work on the ceiling and mudding. I finished staining most of the cabinets. I have to top coat them with varnish or clear coat.

fun part is picking the colors! I picked neutral light almond- for the walls. it is light gray. And rich color for countertops.

I bought door handles at restore which is a shop that sells used and overstock, then donates to Habitat for Humanity.

I am so tempted to volunteer there!!! Love that bargain find and repurposing it.

I bought an old oak paneled door there with a rich mahogany stain that I will refinish and use for the pantry door. Price $10 YES!!
