Kitchen of mass reconstructioncomments (0) April 5th, 2009 in Project Gallery
My Wife and I Bought a 1923 2 + 1 California Bungalow in need of a lot of love. With some elbow grease and the help of FHB we tackled the kitchen first. Peeled through 5 layers of linolium (no asbestos), Knocked out and moved a wall, reallocated a breakfast nook for a small master bath, added a pantry and a pass-through to the living room, refinished the old growth DF floors and put in custom cabinets with soapstone countertops. Still need to apply some finishing touches, but since we do it all ourselves it has to happen inch by inch

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.
