Since we're showing off stuff here are several before and after photos. Looking at the before shots I have no idea why we bought this house with the yellow racing stripes. After not selling our house in Virginia we needed to rebuild lost equity, now I'm ready to cash out and move to a newer house and work on Rovers not houses.

We went with the Blum Blu motion slides very high quality, the drawers have 1/2" bottoms.

That is big - ours is a 30" Shaws. We have 2" marble on top. My wife picked it all out. But I like that design - she cooks and I'm the one cleaning and I find it works well, haha

Here is the Dishwasher, it's on the left side because I am lefty . It will get slid in between the cabinets once leveled out. The faucet is a temp one that will end up on basement. Click image for larger version

Have you chosen which faucet you're going with in there? Will it reach across the whole width of the sink? We'll need a big sink like that - I hate being able to only fit/wash one pan at a time in our current dinky sink.

Local salvage yard by me sells sinks like that for $2000!

And they are out in the elements in a big dirty pile....

Both of my rentals had one like that. Sold em on CL for 200-300 I think

But I just needed it gone.

Would have loved to keep it but just wasn't exactly the right fit for my plans with the house

Got the range in, counters come in 10 days, doors should arrive at the end of the week. Hopefully one more month and I will be done.

Some very nice updates around here. I've now painted 3/4 of the house, put up a tire swing, replaced all the screen on the back porch and installed kickplate all around, as well as replaced several light fixtures and fans. I've got 2 months left in school. Hopefully, then I'll have time to work on the 130 instead of the house.
