Family tree that I made in the Girl Scouts way back when…. Daddy cut them all out for us, and thinking back on it now, I know he must have spent many hours on this project alone, not to mention everything else he did. As a kid, you just don’t think about those things… Thank You Daddy! Thanks also to you Momma for all the hours and time you spent doing everything you did for us!
Daddy has almost completed all the trim work on this cabinet… Only thing left to do is the crown, and getting the doors ordered, finished & installed. He also put the finish piece on the area above the lights… It is absolutely beautiful! Before we know it we’ll be ordering the doors and the cabinets will be full. Thanks Daddy for doing such a great job!
The cabinets Daddy built are all installed, this is the view from center front of the doorway looking in… the lights are installed above the sink & look great! We are ready for the “Finish Carpenter” to come in.. Oh yeah.. that’s Daddy too… Phenomenal job, Daddy!
Left side of doorway… Daddy worked so hard on it all I just have to show all possible views… He did a beautiful job… Never could have gotten such custom work anywhere else!
Right side of cabinets above the sink & dishwasher! They are just gonna be great… shelves will be installed soon & we will be in business!
View from the right side of the doorway, The corner cabinet now has the lazy susans installed, and the upper spice rack is in position… Daddy also got the microwave back in place above the stove. Again, I cannot begin to say how wonderful of a job Daddy has done!
View of the left side of the Kitchen… the refrigerator surround has been installed, and the cabinet above. Truly a beautiful kitchen! Once all the finish work is done, shelves will be installed then we will be ready to order the doors… Once the doors are installed we will decide on the floors and the back-splash, which both look to be tile at this point. Again… Daddy has done a wonderful job custom finishing this kitchen & it is absolutely gorgeous so far! One last note… Zack helped carry the majority of the cabinets in from the garage, and helped Daddy get them properly leveled and installed… Thanks Zack!!!
Corner cabinet Daddy built… Complete with lazy susans
Corner opposite, custom made by Daddy… Microwave and cabinet above it will butt up to the left of this cabinet… Beautiful!
Cabinet custom made for above the dishwasher…
Daddy still has just a few to build, but this kitchen is definitely gonna be the best ever!
Custom-made oak cabinets by Daddy! The hooks are for pot holders & the niche on the other side is for the white board, keys, etc… He has done a great job!
Corner cabinet Daddy made.. Will house lazy susans… He has done a great job!
Another upper cabinet… MAN! My Daddy is a talented man! Cannot begin to express how impressed I am!
Upper cabinet from the other side… he workd so hard on them and did such a great job I just had to show all possible views! Cabinet hanging begins next week… Then the Crown molding and getting the doors all ordered… Daddy has done a great job!
The lower cabinets are coming together. The Drawer fronts and some doors have been stained, finished, glazed, then refinished… They have turned out beautiful. Daddy installed all that he could today, and now the “finishing area” is once again full of additional doors and drawer fronts. This pic is of the drawers for the pots, pans, electric skillets, “junk” and miscellaneous cooking utensils. The hardware does look great on them… I have to admit!
This pic is of the cooking utensils & knives drawer, and below is the cabinet that houses the pull out shelves holding the mixer, Margaritaville drink maker, and other appliances no longer in view on the counter top.
Great job on the cabinets by Daddy, and the finishing by Momma! It is all coming together beautifully!
Daddy was eager to pick up the doors, drawer fronts & drawers from Eagle Bay Wood Products, located in Oviedo last night. They did a wonderful job on the custom order. I have posted more pics today out of respect for Momma & Daddy’s hard work all day long. i was put on water & laundry duty!
Momma stained and put the first coat of finish on a few of the drawer fronts and doors today, she ran out of room in the “finishing area”.
Daddy installed drawers literally ALL day long… The drawers are made of oak. Top drawer is designated partial “junk” and not sure what else.
Second drawer is for the smaller pans, will be so nice to have easy access to them.
Bottom drawer is for the large pans… Daddy sure did a good job of measuring to insure we got the perfect drawer size!
New silverware drawer, and relocated to other side of kitchen… What I didn’t post is the pic of the one drawer that they made the wrong size. Daddy adapted, and modified the planned opening, and made it work… I knew he would make it work, Daddy never fails!
On a side note… Daddy did a great job today… I heard the “Eddings Grunt” many times throughout the day. Every time he was asked if he needed help, he said no… I have such respect for him, and will say it now… Daddy YOU are my HERO!
