Cabinet Update


It's a little crowded in here! It's hard to concentrate on woodworking with the incredible view outside.

Carcasses are painted

The drawers and faces are made (not pictured), but they will be painted and installed after the cabinets are installed.


Stretchers and face frames are ready for install. The Kreg Pocket Hole Jig (in the background) really made things easy. If you're building cabinets, I highly recommend this tool.
 
 
Two coats of Gloss White latex paint was applied over a sealer coat. The paint has a mildewcide added. The paint is easy to apply and sand. I was unable to scratch the paint with my nails so the paint is very durable and easy to clean. Latex paint is safe for the environment, too.
 
The cabinet carcasses for the window side of the kitchen are painted. I’ll begin assembling the cabinets next weekend. The public schools will be closed for a couple of weeks during the winter holidays. I’ll be taking some time off to concentrate on installing the kitchen cabinets.

The remodel has been progressing, but at a slower pace. Toto has been facing some delays and our unit bath will not be installed until the 22nd. Some of the electrical and carpentry work (drywall, cedar panel ceilings, Toto floor) has been completed, but I’ll save those pictures for later. I installed the wiring for the floor heat in the master bedroom and the utility room so the drywall can be installed.

Inagakisan has been busy with his other construction projects, so we won’t have his full attention until the 6th. I’m not sure, but I think that is when the stone bath, toilet, and sink area will be removed. Those areas are located in the center of the house. When they are removed, the entire house will be opened up…finally.   George
 
Looks like we're going to have a white Christmas!
