    The Homeowner’s kitchenCRATE Experience

    We felt very comfortable with all of the work crews who came to our home. They were knowledgeable, polite and patient with any of our questions as the process went along.

    Day by Day Progress Timeline

    (Note: We added an extra day 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, countertops, backsplash, plumbing fixtures, and cabinet doors and drawers. We also reinforced the plywood sub-tops with steel straps to support the new quartz counters and cantilever bar top. 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 updated the electrical for the new pendant light over the sink. The team also lowered the raised bar top so it was flush with the countertop at the sink and then modified the cabinets to accept the Kohler Whitehaven apron front sink.

    Day 3 – The sheetrock was repaired and made ready for the new tile backsplash.

    Day 4 – Since all the walls and the ceilings had been protected, our painters began preparing and priming the cabinets in the kitchen.  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 Oakdale home. Two coats of Kelly-Moore Dura-poxy semi-glass paint in Swiss Coffee were applied to the thoroughly sanded and primed cabinets.  This same priming and painting process was used on the doors and drawers, which are painted off-site in a climate-controlled paint booth for the highest possible quality. The walls and ceiling in the kitchen were also painted to match the existing color.

    Day 6 – The countertop installation team arrived to install the beautiful Kohler Whitehaven short apron front white sink and the Bedrosians Sequel Tallavida quartz countertops with a bullnosed edge detail.

    Day 7 – The tile backsplash artisans were on site to install the Bedrosians Noce 3″ x 6″ tumbled travertine tiles on the backsplash. 

    Day 8 –  Lastly, the kitchenCRATE team installed the homeowner’s new stainless steel 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 Simplice faucet with a vibrant stainless finish was installed and the entire project was cleaned.
