Thanks Kevin I really miss building custom kitchens and some day I will do it again. My bathroom was the powder blue version of Richard's with the faux blue marble melamine paneling and a blue toilet, tub, and sink, my place even had blue carpeting in the bathroom and that was ripped out the day we bought it!

Wall to wall carpeting here except the bathroom and the kitchen, beautiful hardwood floors underneath that still had the planer marks on them. Took two weeks but they came out fantastic, the best compliment I got was the one friend putting a fixture in thought they were store bought. :)

..my kitchen had a dark brown carpet and 6 sided dark brown tile divided by a curved gold transition strip across the middle, the only thing missing from my '70s decor was a wicker egg chair hanging in the corner :lol:

I didn't have much work last year so I remodeled my kitchen, I should try to figure out how to post pictures of that, it was a big job but that's what builders do when they get bored. Next is a second garage just for cars when I can come up with the cash!! Always the kicker!


Love to see the pic's of the new kitchen. I will try my best at telling you how to post pic's. Insert memory card from camera into computer, on nepa "post reply screen", click upload attachment...window opens, click pictures, choose pic, click open, and then on the nepa screen click on add file and wait for the upload to end before you type anything.
My kitchen is the next big item, I will save one 12 foot stretch of base cabinets and paint and glaze and then make new doors and make all new uppers and a baker's area, I think it is called a "Hoosier" on of the first built-ins made for the modern homemaker a 100 years ago :D we've gone full circle! I also want to try my hand at a custom wood exhaust hood.


Maybe I can get one of my 13 year old daughters to do it for me!! Easier then teaching this dog those tricks!! Again, Looks great!!
