Day 7: A cabinetry redesign

November 27, 2011

One of my main requirements during the house hunt was a decent amount of counter space. That among a few others went right out the window once I found this house.

I also didn’t want to sink a bunch of time and money into renovations, just in case the economy doesn’t pick back up in the next five or so years. Aside from a paint job and a few other minimal items, I’m quite satisfied with the house as-is.

Satisfied, that is, until last week, when I realized there’s no dishwasher. After momentary panic, “What else did I overlook?” my brain started restructuring. Luckily, there’s space to grow.

I’ll rip out cabinets, slide in a dishwasher, add a few cabinets and a butcher block, and voila! More counter space and cabinets and no more hand washing! My only home-centered thought today was a sketch of ideas past midnight and a conversation with my dad on possibilities.

I’m actually glad I had that minor oversight. I could live without a dishwasher or additional counter space, but building something new is really quite exciting. Can’t wait to learn a little about woodworking from my dad!

Pinterest I thought this was cool before bed. When I woke up, I decided it was a bit impractical for what I’m trying to achieve.

This countertop will be used somehow...
