Getting started hanging the uppers. Almost put in the lowers first, but I had a hard time reaching to put the screws in in the uppers, so we did it this way. The board below helped a lot with supporting and levelling. June 2002

It was actually a little easier than we thought it would be. It took almost 1/2 of Sunday, and father stopped by for moral support, but we got them hung level and secure.

You can see I got impatient and hung before painting. Still, I did wait til the sheetrock was up...

Still so much to do. Concrete countertop (if it works), tile, sink, faucet, stove, handles, and get the missing cabinet that I had to reorder because I mis-sized. June 2002

Facing South. The future island is marked out on the floor. The short wall will hold the electrical and give the cabinets something to attach to.

The new cabinets are in. We had a local cabinet maker make the boxes and bought the Thomasville doors from Home Depot.
Here I've just started painting with primer.
