halfway thru my full kitchen gut....
overview:
tore down wall between dining room & another into thel living room.
relocated bank of cabinets to opposite wall
replaced all drywall and to add insulation in exterior walls...(none in whole house) only 2 more rooms to touch and whole house will be fully insulated..stupid!!!
roughed in new wiring for added appliances, ran wires for undercabinet lighting, pendant lights, and a bunch of pot lights. (original kitchen had 1 center light)
removed layers of old flooring to get down to planks. installed to plywood and cement board underlayment
Installed 2 new windows
Installed my cabinets
Primed ceiling
installed crown molding

that's it so far...granite templating will happen once i get center island set.
All work was done by myself (except for some extra hands in hold up drywall)

stay tuned for more pics

have a well thoughtout plan.
put uppers up first using a ledger board
make sure you find stud locations
clamp cabinet faces together and predrill to connect each cabinet.
stay plumb and level.

repeat for base

good luck...
