Kitchen Remodel

We saved up for about 5 years and still went quite a bit over budget. I can’t imagine how expensive it would have been to farm it out.
We gutted the 19 year old kitchen and did all the work ourselves, it took almost 12 weeks working full-time at our regular jobs then every night on this.
The original cabinets were custom built, in place out of plywood and 2×2’s. The sub-flooring showed the stain from where they were stained in place. We managed to get them all removed in good shape and re-purposed them to a neighbor making an in-law suite.
I’m always surprised at the poor quality in home building. The backdoor was a french door and the only thing holding it in place was the trim nails and a single screw through the middle hinge on one side. And about three tubes of caulk. The door from kitchen to garage was only held in place with the trim nails on the inside only. I had to move 4 light switches and every one of them was busted from the excessive amount of wire crammed into the box. Under the sink cabinet I found a hot wire, unterminated and going nowhere.

Cabinets from Kitchen Kraft (at HD); all shelves are full extension slide and soft close, all drawers are full extension slide and soft close, all doors are soft close.
Counter tops Quartz (Atlanta Marble)
Appliances, Samsung Black Stainless (Best Buy); 4 door fridge, double wall oven, microwave with vent, quiet dishwasher, gas cook top.
Flooring Captains walk (Floor and Decor)
Under cabinet lighting (Amazon) LED, motion detecting 6k
Wagon wheel light parts from Amazon plus wheel from garage sale
Ceiling fan and wagon wheel light all Edison LED 6k

Sorry couldn’t get more pictures to upload.
