progress: kitchen cabinets

So now that all the boxes are sorted and organized, it’s assembly time.

progress: kitchen design

So here is how I designed our little kitchen from across the country. I laid out the walls in  using a 1 mm to 1 inch scale and with the catalogue in hand I started drawing up the kitchen, picking and choosing which cabinets fit where. I started with items like the sink cabinet, the range, and the refrigerator since they don’t have as many size and placement options and then placed cabinets around them. This drawing was also very handy when the bazillion flat packed boxes got delivered to the cabin so that we could easily sort which cabinet went where.

Oh, and we also happily said goodbye to that not so attractive track lighting.
