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.

That vent hood is $$$$$$! And a real pain to install.

Thanks for the comments on the video as I am a newbie on this part and just learning. But I am impressed with the quality I am seeing from the $15 camera! My son saw new ones like it selling for $139!

Any pictures of the drywall compounding process?

 

I've been teaching a friend how to do drywall work.  I have my methods taught to me by my grandfather who was a professional.  The methods I use differ greatly from these YouTube "tutorials"! 

 

Wet sponges, 18" wide top coats, wetting the tape, wetting your tools, thinning mud down, ect ect.  Curious to see how your process is.

 

1) Taping knife, smear out a layer of compound(right out of the bucket), dry tape, wipe off excess.

2) 5" knife thin layer over top

3) 6" knife to feather using unequal pressure

4) Lightly sand

 

I end up with a nice clean joint, that you can't see or feel.

No pics from that part of the job. My buddy Steve handles the mud work. I don't care to do it anymore! And I have never had any luck with paper tape!

We should wrap this up this week. The granite will be installed today. If the floors were tiled over the weekend, I can install 2 doors and do finish trim work. Then install the appliances! I'll get some pics!

Granite is installed. Appliances are all back in. All that is left is 2 doors (one of which has the switch in the door for the pantry), door trim, base and  base shoe!

The kitchen is finished as far as our work on it. All that is left is the tile back slash which his son will install soon. At least he can cook in it now. In the video, in between the refrig and sink are two pieces of the tile. The style to the left will be installed.
