Counterop Installation - Complete!

Counterop Installation - Complete!

PostBy: Rob R. On: Mon May 17, 2010 11:37 am

My project for this past weekend was replacing our kitchen countertops. There were a few snags: The corner next to the fridge is about 3/8" out of square, so I had to do some delicate router work on the backsplash. The "lazy Susan" under the same corner prevented access to 5 or 6 screws that held the original countertop in place, so I ended up taking some of the cabinets apart to gain access.

We already had the sink and Delta fixture, but the plumbing under the sink was a disaster. I completely replaced the drain pipes with PVC and fresh pex to the Delta fixture. A local guy made the countertops, and the entire project ended up costing about $850; we are very happy with the results.

At some point down the road I would like to eliminate the eating area (not shown, I was standing there when I took the pictures) and remodel the kitchen to gain counter and cabinet space.

Yes Dan, that is the cemetary across the street. It makes an excellent neighbor...nice and quiet, and the grass is always mowed.
