Kitchen remodel #3: One step forward, two steps back

08-22-2008 07:12 PM by 3fingerpat | 4 comments »

Okay, so I went to Sears to purchase their wet saw tile cutter, none in stock, it had to be ordered. Several days later we got the automated voicemail that the saw was ready for pick up. I got the saw home and opened it to find that one side of the metal table top was bent so badly that the hinge wouldn’t work. My wife takes it back the next day and they exchange it for a new one. When I opened the replacement, it also had a bent table top but on the other side now. Back to Sears w...

Kitchen remodel #1: Kitchen Remodel

08-09-2008 07:27 AM by 3fingerpat | 3 comments »

What started out as just replacing a worn out old fence has now turned into remodeling our kitchen. During the residing of the outside wall of the kitchen, we knocked off a couple of tiles from the kitchen counter and back splash. And since I had replaced both kitchen windows and trim during the outside wall residing, we decided to just keep going and remodel the whole kitchen. So we had granite counters installed to replace 4” ceramic tiles and a new stainless steel sink installed t...

06-27-2008 02:28 PM by dennis | 4 comments »

Before I hear all the screams I might add that if this where a “real” kitchen the owners would probably have never wanted it painted. I have two thoughts on kitchens. Prefabs are often junk and custom is often over kill. This kitchen is in the junk category. The install was fair but the design just inhaled large volumes of air….anyway many times lowest bit is also a hurried piece of junk. Did I tell you the house and garden are very nice. In a beautiful neighborhood. I’...

Cape Cod in Portland #4: Kitchen Makeover

04-24-2008 06:41 AM by freitag | 6 comments »

This was the second project I tackled shortly after moving in to the new place. The kitchen had nice quality oak custom oak cabinets all around, yellow formica countertops, florescent lighting. It was well maintained but certainly did not conform to the ‘look’ my wife was going for. Basically we wanted a kitchen makeover, but didn’t want to spend a fortune. Things we really wanted were:-recessed halogen lighting-granite countertops-new flooring-hanging pot rack-whi...

Finally Finishing my Cabinets!

03-28-2008 03:34 AM by Blake | 8 comments »

Just in time for the launch of HomeRefurbers, I finished hanging my kitchen cabinets at about midnight last night. After a minor disaster with creating the styles and rails on my router table (which I blogged about here), I am back on track and they are all in place. I got so anxious that I hung them before staining them, which I think I will finish this weekend (they need a little sanding too). When I do I’ll be sure to post photos in the “project” section. So stay tuned...
