I totally gutted the kitchen and replaced it with the set shown below. This was a fairly straight forward job. The hardwood flooring went in later. The cabients are made from Newfoundland Birch, with a natural finish. The cabinet system was part of a kitchen manufacturer’s store display and I purchased it at a 60% discount price. Luckily all the parts fit with two base cabinets left over.
We had found ourselves in a kitchen cabinet showroom one day, thinking about renovating our home. One of the solid wood kitchens caught our attention, not only for its beauty but for its shape. It was a perfect footprint for our home. As per my usual demeanor, I asked the salesman if any of the showcased kitchens were for sale. I like asking questions like that. Its like placing a cold call, you just throw the question out there and see what happens. I think I caught him off guard. Come to learn that they were just about to remove that showcase for another newer style.
“Cash price. How much?”, I asked.
Well it turned out to be very worthwhile. I snapped up the opportunity and probably saved $10,000. 🙂 What’s not to love about that!
Now its time to get busy demolishing the old, to bring in the new.
You just never know what you’ll find when you peel up old flooring.
Ready to install the new cabinets.
Even the countertop from the showroom fit perfectly.. well, a few tweaks were necessary.
