did kitchen from floor to ceiling,changed it from an “L” shaped to more of a gallery,that passes thru.not with an end wall

made cabinets out of big box plywood,made cabinets reach the ceiling,which also gave one extra shelf.

had to move a heating unit,wired for D/W plus 3 extra outlets and a light.
floor is vinyl squares that are floating
still need new counter top,but,paying as we go,so ,that will be a little later on.

-- may not always be right,but,never in doubt.

Nice transformation!
Looks like you had some “Really nice” paint and wallpaper before ;)

Wow! What a super change. Can’t wait to see it with all new countertops too!

You’re doing the right thing (pay-as-you-go). You’ll never regret it! Thanks for sharing.

thanks for the kind words guys i started a year ago march. i have to take everything outside to do any work,so,weather dependent at times. since i live in maine,nothing was done after mid october till april.
what does not show is,three of the “kick plates” are actually drawers for items like cookie sheets that you don’t use often,but,really needs a place to be handy. also behind all the doors are pullout drawers and shelving.

i planned it out so i was w/o water in kitchen for only one day. went all winter w/o doors on cabinets,but,could at least use them. good thing i have a patient and understanding wife.

I’m right in the middle of doing exactly the same project. Thank God for a patient wife. Good job on everything, but especially the project planning. If you were only without water for one day, you did really well. Nice job on a tough job.
