Since everyone is posting pictures of their hard work, I figure I'd post the progress of our Kitchen renovation.

Beginning of Renovation:
Hole was from water damage, and my stupid ass falling through the linoleum into the garage while taking the dog out so he can take a shit. :)

Looking good, I can't wait to see the finished product. I need to buy a digi to post my home improvements. I just wish my dumbass had taken befores. I just have to finish caulking the trim, paint it, finish the maple strips for my cabinets, do a little tile work on the counters, put the trim up in the kitchen and paint it, put in a new lights fixture, and redo my bathroom again due to the bathroom fan shitting out. Rework in the bathroom will suck, fix the sheet rock around the shower, kill the mildew on the ceiling, repaint, and finish putting the trim up in there. Then if I have some ambition I might put another coat of poly down on the floors. Home improvement never ends.

God I love home improvement. I don't know why but it just seems like something I will spend a lot of my time doing once I have a house or houses. :ph34r:
 
Looks like you have some stuff to do there Steve-o....

I am NOT looking forward to what I need to do... The closet in the baby's room is in ehhhh condition... i REALLY need to at least redo the walls of it, because they are kinda rotten, but only have 4 weeks to do it... And no time... :(

I'll have to dig up some yard pics... And I WISH i had taken pics of the drywell that I made... Came out so pimp.

day 2

Finished sanding the walls, notice in the next few pictures that there are no more "drip" marks from the previous painting job (not mine ;) ). Almost finished the subfloor. All in all only put in about 5 hours of work into the kitchen today. had alot of other running around to do today.

Sanded and primed (tinted grey per JEEF)

Looking damn good Steve...

So how many JDM BBQ's are needed for you to do my kitchen? ;)

I built the coutertop for Jeef, it was a tile base countertop with a maple strip surround. He and one of his friends did the tile. I think it came out pretty damn good.

I'm doing the countertops in our kitchen too. It all depends on what you want to do, tile, formica, granite, butcher block, etc. Its rather simple...
 
I'm thinkin simple and cheap... We are eventually doing additions to the house (First being a 2+ car garage w/ master suite above... thats next year), but for now the counters are just a tad 1970's for us.
