The Bennett kitchen renovation is in it’s 4th week. We should check in because things are really starting to move along now. What the crew has already completed:
- removed old hazardous electrical wiring underneath house
- installed new plumbing pipes and water lines
- replaced 3 exterior spigots, all leaking
- electrical rough-in
- replaced subfloor
- framed pocket door & new door opening
- drywall, mud & sanding
- trim out
What I’ve scheduled for this week:
- floor tile install
- tankless water heater install
Here’s one of the most exciting parts of the plan, the stove wall-
We’ve got some sconce and reclaimed floating shelf action on tap which I’m particularly excited about as are you I’m sure. I think I’ve found some old timbers in our barn that I think will work but I haven’t ran those by Joseph yet, Joseph is the lead carpenter on the crew.
This is my overall plan and mockup for the Bennett kitchen which will be subject to a little change here and there,
I haven’t decided on countertop material yet as you can see. It will be one of those three pietra del cardoso, carrera quartz or honed black pearl granite. I’m waiting on quotes now.
Full disclosure- on Saturday I emailed the cabinetmaker to inquire as to whether or not it was too late to do a custom color on the lower cabinets. I was thinking about switching things up and doing a navy/gray lower cabinet.
And now a quick word from our sponsors!
