Kitchen: Section 2
Here is section 2 before work started.
The refrigerator was moved to section 1 under the bulkhead. The base boards were removed, and the wall stud locations and cabinet placements were marked on the walls. At this point, the floor was more than 50% complete.
The new kitchen cabinets were delivered on 4/10/2017, and by sundown we had the wall cabinets installed in this corner. These consist of a 24" by 24" diagonal face corner cabinet, with a 27" wide cabinet on each side. We went with 36" tall wall cabinets, rather than the standard 30". We considered getting the 42" tall wall cabinets, but the kitchen ceiling is 1.5" too low, and we wanted to install them 54" from the floor to keep an 18" space from counter to cabinet.
On 4/11/2017 we installed the base cabinets for that corner. These are a 36" by 36" lazy Susan corner cabinet, flanked on each side by a 15" cabinet.
On 4/29/2017 we cut the counter tops for the corner to size, and set them in place to check fit. On 4/30/2017 we installed build-up blocks to allow more clearance for the drawers, installed the matching counter end caps, scribed and trimmed the back splash to fit the uneven walls, glued and bolted the miter joint, and finished the counter installation. We also installed the toe kicks on the base cabinets, and the edge trim on the wall cabinets. The only thing left to do at that point was to install the edge trim on the base cabinets.
This is section 2 with everything done except the backsplash.
On 08/07/2017 we installed the backsplash.
On 06/08/2020 we installed a custom spice rack that we built.
This is section 2 completed.
