Default Kitchen Reno

We aren't changing the cabinets or flooring as both are in good shape but months ago we started the process of swapping out the countertop with a quartz top with new sink and faucet. The old one was ceramic tiles which trapped all the dirt in the grout groves.

The company had to come in and take measurements etc then order it.

Today we had a worker/friend come in and tear out the old countertops in preparation for the new ones on Friday.

We also decided to change the dishwasher while we're at it as the old one was missing parts of the racks inside. I picked one up a few weeks ago on sale. The stove is also new and the refrigerator is 2 years old. We are having the dishwasher moved over to provide a better kitchen layout. Right now, when you open the dishwasher there's a foot of space between it and the counter we have to squeeze into in order to access the cabinets above to put dishes away.

So here's the current dishwasher and cabinet setup on that bank of cabinets. What we're going to attempt is swapping the dishwasher and cabinet spots to allow for more room standing in the kitchen.

The dishwasher isn't that old. It's just missing parts of the racks inside. So rather than spend money on it, I found a $1400 dishwasher on sale for $499. The new one has a 3rd tray on top for cooking utensils.

We couldn't move it over as the electrical wouldn't reach. To do it properly would have required a half a day work and ripping apart the ductwork in the basement so it was decided to leave it where the old one was.

It's doing the first load now. Everything was going good until it started draining. Nothing with the dishwasher itself but we now have the kitchen sink removed. In the process, the bottom inspection cap was also removed from the pipe. So when the dishwasher drained, it proceeded to empty out all over the kitchen floor. After mopping up a full bucket of water from the kitchen floor I reinstalled the cap on the pipe. Oh well. No damage done. It's fixed now.

That's as far as she goes today. We have to let all the silicone sealant dry before installing the new faucet.

We're doing the last part of the kitchen Reno today. We had a couple of cabinets built to match the current cupboards. One will go under the overhang on the counter. The other is replacing the current cabinet over the microwave. The one that's there now used to have drawers that were totally useless being that high up. So we removed the drawers and tracks and were just using it as a makeshift rack for pans and cutting boards.
