Thought to share some of my kitchen renovation I dubbed “Functional kitchen for a week.” The conditions were that the wife was off to school in the little girl in kindergarten and I had my last week of maternity leave before I would bend working in the office again. I’ve never worked in a kitchen before, nor have I any great building experience, all I can, I basically learned in theory in this forum.
On the whole, this is a budget renovation, the kitchen to be up is a used kitchen from IKEA, which has stood and littered in a room free for six months. The kitchen was retrieved with a hyrsläp 25 mil away on a cold winter day in February. It was bought from the start in 2007 but a new homebuyers chose to tear out the whole house and start fresh, the kitchen was put on the block and I bought it incl. appliances 16 000.
I had tried to plan so much so that I would not have to go to the building trade every few days, but there were still a number of trips during construction.
The kitchen before: The existing kitchen is the place built of particleboard and foiled doors in some kind of imitation. The greatest concern with the kitchen’s plastic rails to the boxes that rotate and skew the result that the boxes go out of its groove, sticking and fighting in general.
begins at Nios year when I sent away his wife and children out of the house. Picking out the last out of the cabinets and starts to tear down. Nothing will be saved so I do not have to be so careful. Upper cabinets were nailed on the high side, considering the mounting of the 80 cm wide cabinets (a nail!) So I suspected that there was good studs in the wall. This cabinet, we have (without noting the nail) had full of plates and other heavy, but no’ve fallen down .. As we shall change the oven so should the electrician rewire the electricity and walls must be opened. Today, the three-phase 16A of the stove, it should be shared and the two phases must be left to the appliance while a phase goes over to the other side and will service the oven and micro.Jag also saw from where the tiles sit and be shed into new plaster, a tip from the community that I took on.The walls are open and my suspicion of bad joists are all wrong, it is a 195’a top of the roof to attach the wall cabinet. Only the floor remained to demolish before I take evening. A bark shovel was a great help. Korkoplastgolvet was glued directly on the concrete slab. Before I close completely for the day so I unload the cart full of debris, heat some food and take a cold. Just over 12 hours took the demolition.
The second day will be mostly an anticipation of the electrician. I paint the ceiling a face, takes down the last plaster, kottlar battens for the cupboards and the electrician come and pull the hose and we put up some boxes. A setback will, because it is now a 3-phase stove, there is no zero routed and existing cable connections to the mountain in the tube, we will not go through with tension spring from any direction, the tube seems to be pinched anywhere. We will be forced to pull external cable from the distribution box in the laundry room located at the other end of the house. In addition, the cable cross halltaket.Inte so beautiful, but a necessity. The electrician has not grejjer with him for this (it’s Sunday), but have to come back tomorrow kväll.Klockan has been quite a lot anyway so I go to the family who sleep away.
Day 3. New healthy while.
The day begins with I hang up the new plaster on the walls. For tile, I had sawn from 900 mm so it was just to fold into a finished disc horizontally. In other places I put 1200 records. I have borrowed dosfräs of the electrician, but he did not find his “hole in one” so I ran the famous “Ketchup trick” that is well known in the community. It worked well. When the cast was up (a disc must wait until the electrician has left the new hose and cable), it was time to paint the ceiling a second turn.When the paint was in place it was time to start with the floor. I had a little “byggmaxplaton” over then I changed floors in the living room. I rolled out and hit two lengths. When I would splice the new roll so I can not “plop are” splicing properly. After half an hour of tinkering and cursing, I realize that they have changed the distance of “plop why” and tear it out as I put the old roll and run the new roll all the way. When platonic carpet is in place so the electrician pops up with a hose, cable, and mounting accessories. I’m done for the day.
begins with klammra cable from the laundry room to the kitchen. I walk along the ceiling and is forced to cross the hall toward the kitchen, each clamp drilled, plugs and switches in place before the cable finally laid in. When the wiring and tubing are in place so I can bust the last plasterboard, paint the ceiling one last time and put the floor. Once the floor is finished so I spackles little plaster before I take the night and wait for tomorrow.
I will begin by grinding a little filler, where the paper is to sit, hang a few curtains wallpaper, then it is time to begin to cover the floor. Now begins the work alone to an end and I will wait for her brother in law who will be here tomorrow. I’m rearranging some of the room where the cabinets are assembled waiting, set them in “proper order” picks from the shelves and remove the gaps. I saw the fan box and the adjacent cabinet where the fan hose to go through. The last thing I’m doing for the day is to make marks on the wall, put marks in the wave and hang an old sockelbit (!) The rest of the cabinets of the suspension.
Today my brother and help, I’ll get him right before lunch, after having been in the building trade and buying some screws to attach the cabinets with a sealing strip to imkanalsstosen (fan hose empties into a eternitrör with a metallstos on) and some silicone.
We start by installing the cabinets, make sure that they hang straight and fine. I chose to deviate from the standard dimensions of the cabinets and base cabinets on one side because I had made a miss as I sat there an electrical box (I put it liite too high up) would sit under the cabinets. The simplest solution in my opinion, was to raise the cabinet slightly. Now hang the lower edge of the cabinets 144 cm from the floor, which means 54 cm between the countertop and överskåp.Överskåpen is 93 cm high, so they go up to the roof.
Hanging cabinets meant no problems at all, but it went smoothly and painlessly. During the day we got up almost all the cabinets. Only end shelves and a cupboard will have to wait until tomorrow.
We start the day with another trip to byggandeln to purchase some goodies.
Then we hang up/installing the remaining cabinets and end shelves. A large part of the day going to cut and cut out the worktop, we measured secure all dimensions 5 times to avoid a wrong cut.The saw blade of the jigsaw were changed frequently to get the best cut possible.
When we screwed the countertop, it was time to mount the sink and hob. I silikonade sink and mount it with the supplied screw fittings. The appliance was only down in his hole because it had some kind of foam rubber strip around the bottom (should I treat the cut in the countertop here?!).
The day draws to a close and we take back us in the evening with good food and cold beer.Tomorrow is the last day before the regular work begins again.
It is istort seen only småpill remains today. We put the skirting and architraves, set oven and microwave in its place, cleans away a little. When I want to relax on the water again, I realize a mistake… I’ve raised floor 2 cm, and the new countertop is 2 cm thicker than the previous. But water and sewer pipes is of course still the same height as they come up from the floor emphasized. There are a few sweaty minutes before I turn on the faucet and drain, luckily enough pipes from the mixer with the smallest margin. Water runs in the sink without leakage somewhere!
We’re done with the kitchen just before noon. 14 days 8 project. Luckily, I ran no major unexpected surprises that dovetail it, for me, tight schedule. Is the kitchen as functional after a week?! No, sorry…. electrician has not had time to plug in the oven, microwave and pour yet, so we live on foods that are heated in the microwave in the laundry room. This weekend coming so I think we’ve got it plugged in and can start to live normally in our kitchen again.
The holidays come, I will try to do the last bits of the kitchen, among other things, to be skirting there, ceiling moldings, tiles, lighting under the cabinets and little else småpill pertaining thereto.
Money spent so far: almost 22 000 incl hyrsläp and gasoline.
