Thought I would clue you folks in on what has occupied my week days since October 6th. I am doing a kitchen remodel in Tulsa. The house was built in the late 1920's. This summer we remodeled a hallway, two bedrooms, and a Master Bath at this house.

This is the cabinets that were in there.

This last weekend I finally sprang for a camera that does videos too. So today I took the camera along to see what it would do inside the house. The camera is a Nikon s3300. I like it as it is small, but takes great videos. I'm still learning how to upload the videos, though.
Anyway, we have the cabinets in and they have done a template for the granite countertops. Hope to have them installed next Monday. In the meantime, we are wrapping up other small things. This weekend, the tile floor will be installed.
Here's 3 videos for you to look at.

Looks very nice.  I just finished a remodel of my kitchen back in the summer so I know what you're going through.  Lots of work involved and I ran into problems I hadn't anticipated like having to move a gas line, an HVAC vent, and doing some rewiring.

The kitchen is completely rewired. I think we have 8 circuits in there. Stripped exterior walls, insulated, and new sheetrock.

Very nice work and it looks like you do the videos well too! I have never done video before but it looks to me that so many folks are in a huge, erratic hurry making them. Your movement is slow, smooth and deliberate. My wife can't watch most amature videos as they make her motion-sick.

 

Are those "stock" cabinets or do you build them too? Makes me miss when I was in that profession!

The cabinets were built by a shop. My nieghbor across the street put the stain, sanding sealer and 2 coats of laquer on for us.

It hasn't been too bad as far as 'square' goes. But this was built back when quality meant something. Most issues to deal with have been the fact the walls were plastered, so door/window jambs are way bigger than for sheet rock walls. Not a whole lot of cracks in walls either.

Nice job but, I think that you are losing focus. A new camera should be for tractors in action. Good Luck, Rick

I have same problem in my mom's house I am remodeling. They used the old true dimensional lumber, but didn't own a square or plum bob, not a square corner or a level wall in the place.

 

Kenny, if i knew you were needed some time wasting, I would've shipped ya up here and had plenty for you to do :thumbs:  :D

This is just practice for when I can get to the tractors. Then I'll know how the camera works!

Good looking job Kenny. I like the style of hood vent hanging over the range. I do a lot of kitchens & I would rather gut an older home than deal with the crappy job of most new homes. I have tried to do new construction a few times but still would rather remodel. Good job on the video, especially how slow you were. This gives the viewer time to look at instead of getting dizzy.
