We finally have a kitchen! And since we’ve been simultaneously renovating the entire house along with this kitchen/family room project, we’re breathing a big sigh of relief that the house is ready to live in at last!

Tile and grout finished.
Seth cut the white oak cabinet doors to fit the IKEA frames and used IKEA/Blum hardware to attach them. Like our kitchen drawers, they feature a “soft close” damper. The last step will be to put a finish on the doors, but we wanted to hang them first to make sure everything fit. Seth is also going to try to build something to cover the exhaust fan vent.
Custom cabinet doors installed—still in need of a clear-coat.
Estimated time for project: 8 weeks/two months
Time remaining: 0 weeks!
