Here's one Leon and I teamed up on that is now ready to turn over to the
We'd like to particularly thank the framing crew for making the window
opening over the sink oversize, then moving the window 4" ... the wrong way!
Other than that ...
(What the hell ... that's what you get for building the kitchen cabinets two
months _before_ the foundation is poured)
Hehe ... thanks!
Back when I was a kid, helping to build houses and barns, it was the framers
and carpenters who worked to "1/8" in 8' " and the saying was: "Don't worry,
the trim guys will fix it".
Now, with "trim carpenters", many who never saw a piece of wood before they
got here, the mantra is: ‘No se preocupe, los pintores lo fijarα!
It is amazing how much countertop and cabinetry $ 1500.00 will buy
these days, eh? :-)
Seriously though, I see a LOT of work there.... and it looks great! I
could use you guys up here. The guys who that kind of quality here,
are booking into September already. Did you buy the doors? Do you
always cut the kick out of the gables?
Beautiful. Kitchen drawers with real wood sides and dovetails? Nice.
I particularly like the built out soffit and double crown on the
uppers. Seems like everyone around here is just leaving the tops open
the better to collect a lot of dust.
I build habitat houses, usually work on the framing crew, then come
back with another guy (who also frames) to finish out inside. We
have a lot of fun discussing the complete lack of competence shown by
the framing crew.
Glad you liked the wooden "backsplash" on the "kitchen desk cabinet". I've
been considering doing that for sometime and finally got the opportunity to
design one and actually do it.
It's expected around here these days for shelves to be pull-outs, so there
are 12 pull outs in the base cabinets altogether in that kitchen, plus the
19 drawers makes for a lot of drawer slides.
The slides for the shelf pull-outs are KV 8400 full extension, and the
drawer slides are Hittich Quadro V6 21 full extension, with a self closing
The cabinets I had put into our family room all have pullouts and I love
them even now. For someone like me who stands a better than even chance of
eventually being wheelchair bound they are fantastic.
do you expect to have the countertop installers seal the bottom edge of the
backsplash? i have wine cabinets sitting on top of my counters, and have a
heck of a time preventing water wicking up, causing finish lifting.

Not really a "backsplash", more along the lines of a wooden 'letter rack'
for the kitchen "desk", sitting on top of polished granite, and relatively
removed from any source of moisture that would "wick". Outright spills
shouldn't be more of a problem then they would be under normal
circumstances, if I understand you correctly?
