Renovating the kitchen

The kitchen is slowly coming together, it has taken years but we are nearly there. One of our tasks on our last trip was to complete the tiling of the worktop, grout it, seal it and place a trim all the way around the top. Sounds not too bad however it was difficult due to the fact that we had to lift the cooker top and sink to a level where we could tile underneath.

The cooker top and sink were placed onto wooden blocks.

After a few days work it was more or less complete and we were able to give up on that dreadful chore of having to go out for meals 🙂 …

The completed work, it is looking great.

The kitchen area is quite dark so our final task was to fit under shelf lighting

We looked at various DIY stores for cupboard doors and drawers that would fit our kitchen, no luck. So I asked at the local builders if they knew of anyone that could make them for us. They were very helpful in recommending a carpenter in the next village. Which we found and explained what we wanted, he asked for the type of wood to be used, sizes, and photographs. So armed with all of the information the carpenter required we returned the same day. One look at the photographs was enough to tell him that he knew the house. He had made the staircase etc for the previous owner. We are now waiting for a quote to complete the final stage.

This is a 3D model of our kitchen complete with the new doors. It was developed by our very talented son and is particularly useful when I want to know if our existing furniture and new furniture will fit into our home in Daglan. The basic colour scheme for the kitchen was helpful in choosing what type of wood and colour wood we needed for the doors and draws.
