Day by Day Progress
(Note: We added a few extra days to our normal 7-day process to accommodate the owner-request add-ons, like these…)
Here’s how we did it:
Day 1 – Demo Day! On this first day, we set up plastic walls to protect the home from dust, protected the path from the entry door to the kitchen with building paper, and then went to town removing the appliances, countertop, backsplash, plumbing fixtures, cabinet doors, and drawers. We reinforced the plywood sub-tops with steel straps to support the new quartz countertops. Toward the end of the day we created the template for the new quartz countertops, which take a few days to fabricate off-site.
Day 2 –The electrical team began the wiring for the new can lighting. Six inch can lights were placed strategically around the kitchen to optimize the lighting over work spaces. The trash compactor was removed and converted to a pull out trash bin with a new cabinet door, the mixer was removed from the peninsula and new shelving was added underneath.
Day 3 – Next, we used metal-stud framing to sheetrock the old lightbox and then hung and taped the sheetrock.
Day 4 – Since all the walls and the ceilings had been protected, our painters began preparing and priming the cabinets. Using a high-grade, oil-based primer, every inch of the kitchen cabinets were caulked, sanded and primed. This is the first (and perhaps most critical) step of creating a durable paint finish.
Day 5 – The painters then began refinishing the kitchen cabinets in this Hughson home and applied two coats of Kelly-Moore Dura-poxy paint in Texan Angel to the thoroughly sanded and primed cabinets. This same priming and painting process was used on the new doors and drawers, which are painted off-site in a climate-controlled paint booth for the highest possible quality.
Day 6 – The painters applied Kelly-Moore Woodward Park paint to the cabinets to give them an antique appearance.
Day 9 – Lastly, the kitchenCRATE team installed the homeowner’s appliances. The transformation then hit the home stretch with the installation of the freshly-painted cabinet doors and drawers. The final day of the project included an array of “touch-up” items: all outlets and switches were replaced, the Kohler Ballera faucet and Kohler Traditional soap dispenser each with an oil-rubbed bronze finish were installed and the entire project was cleaned, top-to-bottom.
