From a reader: “Where the fridge is there used to be a doorway. where the high up window is there used to also be a doorway leading out to a entry/exit area to the backyard ( that space is now a 1/2 bath) Wall between kitchen and dining room knocked out completely (former owners had knocked it out partially, leaving a “peninsula” and part of the wall coming down from the ceiling.)

This was a regular galley kitchen before the redo…sorry can’t find the before pictures. The place where I ordered the cabinets thought I was insane, but I am really happy with the skyline effect, which was what I wanted.

Cabinets: solid cherry with sage stain, Dynasty, where most of the cost went, ordered through The Great Indoors
Counter: zodiac.

Tiles: bisazza, custom configuration, but installed by me island: made from upper cabinets (dining room side), and drawer base units (kitchen side), topped with an Ikea thick oak counter…way way cheaper than any other butcher block counter i found…actually a bargain.

Total cost is really hard to say, i had trouble with contractors ( this was done during the “boom” when contractors could screw customers and not care! argh!)…but definitely between 15 and 20K.”

The submitter is happy to answer specific questions anyone may have just post questions in the comments section. If you have any renovation photos you’d like to submit just email photos and a bit of commentary to princeofpetworth (at) gmail (dot) com
