The next few blogs will cover the last of the demolition work (I hope) – for the last few days I have been carefully removing the chimney breast from above the living room.

A couple photographs of the chimney from both sides before I started.

After 2 days of demolition, because the chimney breast also supports the roof – the opening is made and still supported by 4 steel supports and 4 wooden posts

Photobucket

A photograph of the living room with smoke pipe removed, the fire and supporting wall will also be removed during this stage of the demolition.

tomorrow I start and the supporting structure so I can remove the supports and start on the other walls. The picture below (sketchUp) shows what has to be achieved over the next week or so.

You will notice that the doorway from the stairs into this room is not the friendliest to negotiate (narrow, short and slanting top).
Photobucket

This position of the door is determined by the location of the stairs. This is why we are going to replace the stairs and hallway totally.

The pictures below show the stair case and entrance to the Bedroom 2 from the doorway just mentioned.

This shows the stairs and landing from the hallway.

The ceiling/floor is going to be totally removed along with the downstairs WC Photobucket to make a double height entrance hall and stair case.

The doorway into the master bedroom is far too low (1m80, 6’), it is also on the wrong side of the wall to align with the other doors upstairs,

Photobucket

so this also needs to be moved – this may also cause some problems as this wall was the old gable end of the original house and supports the old roof. I am going to attempt to make this modification using timber frame construction 8×2’s but got some calculations to do first.

Just for my wife – Tony, Nana, Sacha and the rest of the family are doing well and survived the trip from Finland last yearPhotobucket

Both styles are used within shaker style kitchens, each giving a different finished look, with the finished result more often than not coming down to your own personal preference.

For decades, kitchen cabinets have been made using the front frame method; where the door of the cabinet is perfectly fitted within an outer wooden frame. However, advancements in manufacturing techniques, and a desire to reduce costs in the modern world saw the introduction of frameless kitchens (lay on shaker), which has quickly established itself as a popular and affordable alternative.

Whilst lay on shaker continues to be hugely popular, we’re seeing a revival of front frame cabinetry thanks in part to its durability and longevity, a by-product of the excellent craftsmanship that goes into this joinery technique.

SO WHAT ARE THE PROS OF FRONT FRAME SHAKER KITCHENS?

Durability
Front frame kitchens use traditional cabinetry construction and is more labour intensive, giving a higher quality finish than the lay on construction method. This utilises solid wood, and provides a durable and high-quality finish.

Choice of finishes
Your kitchen doors can be made from solid wood or veneered MDF, depending on the style of your kitchen and your budget. The result is also more traditional in appearance than lay on kitchens.

Finishing touches
Front frame cabinetry is fitted with butt hinges, with each one ‘chopped in’ by hand to ensure the perfect fit (this is actually a very skilled process, which our team are experts at!). Using hinges in this way, makes for an extremely strong bond which is unlikely to weaken with continued use. It also allows for the door to fit perfectly inside the frame without any further alterations needed over time.

The choice of metal used for the hinges is down to personal preference and can be brass, brushed, chrome and can be matched with sink, handles and accents across the kitchen.

BUT WHAT CAN A LAY ON SHAKER KITCHEN OFFER ME?

Lay on kitchen doors are just another name for overlay, i.e. the door lays over or on top of the carcass (internal box) Choosing this option also has many advantages including:

Affordability
Less labour intensive, lay on kitchens are the more affordable option but can still create the shaker look that you are after.

Modern finish
The advantage of the lay on door style is that the finish is very consistent, with very clean lines and a continuous appearance.

More space to play with
Due to how the cabinets are made, with very small gaps between doors and drawers, it means you benefit from more space for storage – hurrah!

Finishing of both front frame and lay on shaker
One similarity that both styles of kitchen cabinetry have, is that they can be finished using the same paint and spray painted techniques. Popular colours such as cream, greys, and blues work well across both styles. However, one difference is that front frame cabinets can also be hand painted for a brushed, more rustic finish.
