Renovation of 1929 kitchen w/1970s remodelcomments (0) April 3rd, 2009 in Project Gallery
This kitchen remodel was completed in 1999. My wife and I took on this project that started during my summer break from college before starting the engineering program at the U of W (spring of 2000). I did most of the hard core construction work during the summer and the finish work was completed by Thanksgiving. We bought the lighting fixtures from Restoration Hardware (Portland store), which I modified after I found they were too long for the space over the kitchen sink. We bought the slate floors at a liquidation sale and most of the other materials at Home Depot and spent just under $6,000 for the completed kitchen. Later, we bought the Viking stove with a bonus from my wife's work.
(Not pictured is the corner-former-porch area where the refrigerator stands next to an antique mission side-board, which is under a custom steel pot-and-pan rack I designed and fabricated many years earlier.)

Want to see the winner entries?
Fine Homebuilding editors are a finicky bunch, and opinionated too. So the task of narrowing down the nearly 150 entries from our “Before and After: What’s Old is New Again,” kitchen and bath contest to just five winners wasn’t easy.
After the field was narrowed down to a group of fifteen, the editors convened with coffee and notebooks into a conference room equipped with a projector (for easier viewing). After going back and forth, and sometimes cringing, a few entries kept rising above the others, and viola, we found our winners.
Thanks to all who entered, and congratulations to the winning participants who will be mailed a new, DeWalt 18V 1/2" XRP LiIon Hammerdrill/Drill/Driver kit.
