Chris you are right, it has been a big job. I am kind of tired of it. Still, winter can be so depressing. A bright efficient clean kitchen for cooking cheers me up. So, the effort is the cost of being happier when the seasons change again. Fortunately I have the luxury of a spare room where we placed some cooking appliances, and a grill outside. Doing it myself cost sbout 1/4 of what having a contracter would cost, snd I dont like working with them or trust them.

It's an enormous job, Daniel, but well worth the trouble! It's beautiful and very practical!

Yes Joan. I do enjoy watching others progress. Daniels kitchen has turned out beautiful.

Mike, I am sorry to hear about your health problems but I laughed out loud when you told your wife you followed the address! That's just too funny because it's so obvious.
We're all falling apart. I have a little surgical procedure coming up Monday. The procedure isn't a big deal but the drive to the specialist and surgical center is four hours each way. That sucks!

Kathy, isn't it fun reading each other's progress and especially after we have become well known to each other. Daniel and I have been friends on this site at least four years. Watching his garden grow and change each year has been a real treat for me.

I believe the under counter lights make the biggest difference. I've been meaning to pick up a couple of the cheap, self adhesive kind to try them out. Now I know I've got to put them on my list!
For the reasons you stated. The vision isn't as sharp as it used to be.

Daniel, this is stunning! I see what you mean by the dark cabinets and how much brighter your kitchen looks with those lovely new cupboards. The under the cupboards lighting provides a far better light than a ceiling light. I know you will enjoy that! Are the cupboard tops marble? They look so pretty and shiny!

I like the hat with the blue ribbon, just a perfect shape. 

I am impressed!

Pretty close to the final result.  Meanwhile, we had Pad Thai tonite.

Felaine, the bamboo flooring was from Costco.  It has a 50 year warranty.  I do not know how it will stand up to standing water - but we don't get much of that in our kitchen.  Bamboo is about 3 times harder than oak.  The pre-finish is a very tough aluminum oxide polyurethane, baked on in factory.

Daniel, where did you get the bamboo flooring, and how long do you think it will last?

We had a lot of major work done on our house, including linoleum tile kitchen flooring.  The tiles started cracking and falling apart after about 5 years, and are one of the causes of my tripping and falling down at least once a week. 

The contractor did a shitty job all over the house, but the kitchen is the worst.  (My sister hired him because he was one of her fellow JWs....) 

The bamboo looks classy, especially since the rest of our house has 1930s era hardwood floors, so everything would kinda match.  We do NOT have tacky wall-to-wall carpeting.

BUT I would have to hire someone to install the flooring. Our city's Senior Services Center has all sorts of connections, so that won't bee too expensive, or impossible.  I hope.

Daniel, The way you describe it you and Ning could put a gourmet restaurant. I'd be your first customer.

And also, time to take some more photos of the project! I look forward to seeing it. I like the idea of lights under the cabinets. Laura has that and I love it.
