Well, I think Diane and I are pretty much settled in on a design concept.
Good old Home Depot spend 2 plus house with me talking about a kitchen design. I like it and so does Diane. Of course they don't know I plan to build it myself.
The picture is seriously distorted. The wall with the frig and window is 192" long and the wall to the left is 102". The island is distorted equally the same.
I do have fully measured detailed drawings and a full mental idea as to what to do.
Just looking at it a little more - I think I like the "no molding" around the window also.
My floor does not look like that either.
Eventually I will go with Corian tops but temporary will be formica.
We will be all natural Cherry.
The island is wrapped in raised panels and corbels. Microwave is built into the island.
The Thomasville cabinets that Home Depot carries are of a decent quality. Wood drawers, not plywood. No particle board at all. All full extension soft close doors and drawers. All nice stuff. I would say all about same quality as I will build.
Price = $21,000 No applainces, no plumbing, no installation except corian, no sink hardware - just the cabinets.
I plan on replumbing the baseboard head and installing under cabinet heat, adding at least one more 20a, maybe 2 20a circuits, replumbing the dishwasher, replumbing the icemaker, adding an additional carbon water filter for the kitchen. All in all I think I am adding a value of $25-30k to the house.
I have most of the materials I need to built the cabinets. Nice to know what it is worth.
This is what it looks like now.
I have already removed a few old cabinets. Pretty much bare bones.
