« Part 5: First face frame! Part 6 of kitchen cabinets series Part 7: Lower face frames are done. »

I have not got much done on the actual cabinets but have still done a lot of work over the past two weekends. After the plumbing, electrician, and plumber were finished I had work that I needed to get done before the drywall and floors went in.

The story sticks I made helped identify areas that I needed to add blocking to support the new cabinets.

Once the drywall was in I built the bases for the cabinets. The cabinet design I went with has separate bases that the cases will sit on top of. After the floor goes in I will take these out, disassemble and rip down to the height I need based on the floor thickness. These will eventually be covered with a 1/4” veneer I will resaw.

Pantry cabinets too.

The last picture is what the pantry was before we started, a back set of stairs and a long hallway. Our remodel started with taking those stairs out to open up the space.

What a long process renovation is. I just finished remodeling a closet and it took most of 3 months of nights and weekends to get everything built, then a week of vacation time to rip out the old shelves and carpet, paint, and then install the shelves.

You’re making great progress with all that has to be accomplished with such an extensive remodel. Keep on keeping on!
