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, countertops, backsplash, island, plumbing fixtures and cabinet doors and drawers. We also reinforced the plywood sub-tops with steel straps to support the new quartz counters. Toward the end of the day we created the template for the new countertops, which take a few days to fabricate off-site.
Days 2 & 3 – The electrical team began the wiring for the new pendent lights while the CRATE team completed the cabinet modifications. The cabinets above the desk were removed, the desk was raised to countertop height, a garbage can pull out was added, the cabinets at the oven were modified to accept the new double ovens and new microwave location and the new island, with a beautiful butcher block top, was installed.
Days 4 & 5 – The sheetrock at the countertop and desk was repaired and made ready for the new tile backsplash.
Days 6 – 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 7 – The painters then began refinishing the kitchen cabinets in this Modesto home. Two coats of Kelly-Moore Dura-poxy semi-gloss Great White paint 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.
Day 8 – The walls and ceiling in the kitchen also received a fresh coat of paint. Kelly-Moore Ostrich Egg paint with a satin finish was applied to the walls and the ceiling was painted to match the existing color.
Days 10 & 11 – The tile backsplash artisans were on site to install the Bedrosians Traditions Ice White 3″ x 6″ matte ceramic tiles on the backsplash and fireplace surround. The tiles were set in a herringbone pattern at the cooktop and a subway pattern throughout the rest of the kitchen. The tile was grouted using Laticrete Bright White grout.
Days 12 & 13 – 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 Simplice faucet and Transitional soap dispenser, each with a vibrant stainless, were installed, the new barn door was hung, and the entire project was cleaned of all construction debris.
