Beautiful! I am also impressed that you did the work yourselves. Wow. Enjoy!

You really did a great job! Everything is pulled together nicely. Is the layout about the same as before? How long did the project take? Enjoy your new kitchen!

 o RE: Pics of my mostly DIY Kitchen.

Thanks for your kind words.
The project took almost 2 years from the design standpoint.
8 months of construction.
The Layout is completely different. We changed windows and closed up a door. took down a partition wall and removed soffits. Moved plumbing..etc.It was a complete gut. That's why it took us so long.
Husband was very good at demo. Luckily we had friends to help us put things back together. :)

Hi, I too am looking into Kitchen Craft via buycabinets.com also in this type of white/off white finish. Are you happy with the construction, quality and finish of a painted cabinet and Kitchen Craft? How are the frameless cabinets working out? We too are DIYers. Was it all that hard to install yourself and did the delivery/arrival of the cabinets with them go smoothly? I really would appreciate your input. Tx, Nicole

Hi there. Loved your kitchen. We have red walls too and are in the middle of design where we think we will retain them.

Our KD has come up with a corner sink. The window would be on the left shoulder of the user.

We are considering a mirror backsplash, or perhaps tile to match the floor.

Cabinets will be either similar to yours or maple in a light stain.

How have you found your corner unit? Would you go with it again. Any disadvantages?

Thanks

Alex
