Good news,bad news..

First the bad news...
New construction installs,quite simply,..suck.
The entrance to this home is 5' off the ground,and the steps haven't been built yet!
This means that we get to haul monster cabinets up a makeshift ramp,hastily built from 2" x 12" planks.
..It's like carrying a horse across a tightrope.
We took turns walking backwards up this stairway from hell.


The good news is,the actual installation went like 21 jeweled clockwork!
It's a virtual given that something will screw up.
An electrical outlet placed 2 inches too high,or a window installed slightly to the left,and the cabinet becomes worthless.
Since it's more feasible to build a newly re-sized cabinet,than move a sliding glass door an inch and a half to the side,..well,..you get my point.


No such nonsense today!..Thank you Lord.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I thought I'd start the tour with an overview of the kitchen.
We've actually completed the job at this point,and Mr K. is schmoozing with the owners at the island cab.
I wish I had time to take exterior shots of this beautiful home.
Just outside the back door is a lovely deck that wraps around 3/4 of the house.




-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
..a view from the opposite angle.Work in progress.
The refrigerator will fit nicely in the space below the two open doors.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My good buddy Tyson secures the 'rough top' to the center island cabinet,preparing it for the ceramic tile setters.
The cabinet measures 4' x 8' with about a 12" overhang at each end.
Every inch of this is pure counter space!..
Full extension roll-out drawers lie behind the doors on both sides.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is my pride and joy!
A hutch/bar arrangement approximately 16' long.
A laser level shoots a beam along the bottom of the uppers to insure equal placement.
The wine rack is centered between standard cabinets,and glass door display cabinets...I couldn't get the whole thing in one shot.
Again,Roll-outs behind the doors in the base cabinets.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The open spaces in the cab on the left will accommodate a built-in microwave (center),and built-in oven.
The cook top and range hood will be installed just to the right side.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Corner cabinets are a little tricky...
Just below the upper cab,is a double 'lazy Susan'..Sweet!



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Master bath linen closet is nearly 12' tall!
This arrangement is duplicated in the 2nd bath.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This Master bath sink cabinet will have a marble sink/counter top installed.
The 2nd bath gets ceramic tile.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Holy crap!..I totally spaced out taking pix of the laundry room!..Dammit!
Maybe because it's located out in the north forty of the home,and it was all I could do to find my way to the front door.
Anywhiz,..we installed a nice utility sink cabinet,a base cabinet that I assume will function as a folding table,and two upper cabinets,each over 50" wide.


The job was built from Red Oak,with Melamine interiors.
The finish is clear lacquer.
We are the exclusive cabinet makers for the home builders, Endeavor Homes of Northern California!..just sayin'.


Thanks so much for enduring all this shop talk.
It's what I have.

Comes now,the cheap brown liquor back therapy and weekend slothery!..
..I think perhaps a video on the 'morrow.

Oh I do lurve when you say "On the morrow"... It's ever so Mr. Darcy of you. Those are amazingly hunormous. How much crap must a person have accumulated to justify such amazing hunormity? Although, their pack-rat'edness is your good fortune eh?

mom- Thanks doll!

Hat-tasia-..and I lurve your creative wordification! :)
I think everyone should buy more stuff,and order new cabinets in which to store their stuffage in.

austexgrl- Boy howdy,I'm glad they weren't raised panel doors.That adds significantly to the weight!

Rainey- Burger King is running an 'Indiana Jones' promo where you can win $100,000!..all ya gotta do is eat 3 meals a day there,and keep scratchin' the stickers that come with the triple decker bacon,and ranch dressing cheeseburgers..this my plan.
..I'm really looking forward to setting new standards of slothery with you kids! :)

Yellerdawg- I'll let Mr.K know that you're open to negotiation! ;)

220 volts with some halogen lights and you could have a nice little garden in those cabinets.

I'm in total awe of the workmanship. I'm trying to imagine the heathens who would fry up something that would spread grease to the surfaces of these magnificent cabinets.

You are a craftsman - and the fact that it all slotted in so well - when we moved here the kitchen had to be done (it'd fit in one of the corners of that kitchen (good luck to them hey! They pay the bills) - our cabinet maker measured it all up allowing for fridge, stove etc - but didn't allow for the fact that the fridge door had a curved surface - he'd allowed for flat surface - hence for the first two weeks in the house we could only open the fridge door half way - He said it'd take two weeks same as in the movie "The money pit" with Tom Hanks and Shelley Long - everything took two weeks!

Those cabinets are beautiful

Those are beautiful cabinets - I love the simplicity of the style. But holy hell! How big is that kitchen?? I hope there are going to be 27 people living in that house.
