My wife was not pleased with the 60’s style, too small, dark kitchen. So of course it’s time to make a mess, buy more tools (just in case I need them of course), and built her what she wants. She’s a great cook, I like to eat, she wants new kitchen, seems fair to me.

Anyone tell me why some pics post sideways or upside down, is there a way to rotate them?

Look great. I see your wife is following about 3 cabinets behind you filling them up already even before you got the doors installed! LOL.

Thank you. After several months cooking on the barbque, washing dishes in laundry room sink she was anxious to start organizing. She was concerned she wouldn’t have enough stuff to fill all her new cabinets. Trust me, it wasn’t a problem.

looks great…

to get the pics right side up, you have to rotate them and then crop (even just a smidge) and then save. Somehow that gets LJs software to see it correctly.

If you just rotate and save, it will still post sideways.

You rocked it!

My dad and I did a tear out for my wife many many years ago. Did in stages over a year or so.

For a while we had the sink counter supported on one end by a non working dishwasher and the other with a saw horse. the fridge was right inside the den door and she cooked on an electric skillet for a time.

But looks like you were lots quicker and better looking job as we used factory cabinets.
