This was a great job…the whole kitchen was scattered about the house…the stove had not worked in two years, the sink was falling off of the 1/2” ply it was resting on, there was no kitchen plan, all the cabinets were unboxes and scattered between the three floors of the house. Live wires were exposed and hanging from the walls, the plumbing needed to be removed back to the basement and redone…ext…ext…ext….
The homeowner had been very trusting to some contractors that were less than what they should have been and her home suffered for it. It was a real honor to get to pull this together for her, and we became good friends because of the job. I took extra pics of this one litte corner cabinet because all that was available to me to built it was a skillsaw and my craig jig. The door and drawer face were extras.

Wow, nice job! I’m in the process of remodeling our new house and the kitchen is the first room we started on, and I know how much time/effort can go into making it look this good. Nice little corner cabinet too!

Nice work, Jeremy.

As one who bit off a kitchen job not long ago, I REALLY appreciate the fine work you have done. Bathrooms and kitchens are little jobs that grow!!

Yours looks great.

Sounds almost as bad as the house I bought about a year and a half ago LOL

Kitchen re-do is on my to-do list as well, along with about a million other things….....

Hey, Jeremy, that’s a real nice job on that kitchen. I’m sure that your friend was well pleased with it.
