Well its been about 6 months since our last post. We've been working on the kitchen since May, pulled out all the plaster (it wasn't salvageable). Replaced the windows and doors, refinished the floors, and many other thing we'll leave for another post. We're building the faceframes and doors using salvaged wood from other parts of the house, 80 year old douglas fir. The boxes are made with good one side fir plywood, so they should be plenty strong. All the faceframes for the bottom cabinets are done, so we're moving on to doors and drawers. Once they're done we can order the counters and start on the uppers. We are still figuring out the colour, we were thinking bay berry green milk paint on the bottom, and Waterlox varnish on the uppers. We need to experiment with the milk paint.
