Pictures of the kitchen!

These were taken over the 4th of July weekend (Mr. Wyatt's last day here) and this Saturday.

This pic is pretty cute. Chris and his dad working on the kitchen sink's plumbing. Thankfully, I see no plumber's cracks. 

The walls have been primed, and the supports for the fridge cabinet are in (those 2x4s on the left). The crown molding is in.

The other wall has been taped off and primed, and you can see more crown molding. 

Chris and Mr. Wyatt put in the end panel for the dishwasher.

Here we see the dishwasher box and the sink plumbing, all ready to go! This was 7/3/10.

Here's how we left the house this Saturday (7/10/10). Chris has begun to tile, he painted one coat on the walls, and the cabinets are all primed and ready to be painted. I was working in the garage, prepping the cabinet doors for painting.


  1. Great design! but does it have proper installation or does it have proper kitchen plumbing system?

  2. Chris, I think it does. David (Mr. Wyatt) used to work for a plumber, and also built his own house. Also, it's honestly not that hard to properly shim and level cabinets and to make sure everything is square (or as square as it can be in a 40-year-old house; the wall with the fridge is slightly off).

    I do wish we had tiled the whole thing before putting in cabinets, but that's a lesson learned that doesn't affect the final performance of the kitchen.

  4. Personalized kitchen right? Based from the pictures, I am pretty sure that you had a little bonding doing this.

  5. Margarette, if by bonding you mean "quality time together for finding out new things about our relationship", then you are correct. Heck, we're still bonding. This weekend it was doing a built-in faux fireplace. Maybe I'll actually update the blog for that =P

  6. It seems a great project! I think proper working with good enough experience can take things better. I recently got renovation of my kitchen and got boiler replacement which was the great hassle for me. What was budget for this work on kitchen?
