:eek:
Not even in my worst nightmares :lol:
But, looking at the huge work you've done, mounting Ikea furniture must be the easiest part.
Hold on UC, keep looking at the light at the end of the tunnel and you'll succeed.

I'm just focusing on getting that done so we can actually live there (and assemble furniture for weeks on end). The end is in sight, but it's still some time away. Fatigue has settled in and everything feels tedious and frustrating. :lol:


I remember when the ikea delivery dropped like 90 boxes in my dining room that was to become a kitchen. Like you gut your old kitchen, refinish everything, plan that shit out on the planner, sat with the planning consultant (the most horrible day ever), you’ve done all your homework and then they just drop this shit into your life and you’re just like “what the fuck.... no more!!”. I was totally burned out by the time we got to that stage. I was working on one of those drawers inside a drawer and I built it wrong and couldn’t get it apart and was ready to have a meltdown at the thought of going back to the kitchen warehouse.

One of my best friends is a contractor and he was laughing at my tales of woe.... UNTIL HE HAD TO BUILD A KITCHEN. He said “now I understand!!!!”

A finished kitchen! Brings tears to my eyes! I can't wait to get to that point. Good job, man. Looks ace! Much envy. :lol:

I think I'll be done with the kitchen in maybe... 3 more days? I spent 12 hours today putting together drawers. Fucking drawers. My headphones broke like 2 months ago and today I splurged on a nice and big Bluetooth speaker. I think listening to music and podcasts again was the only thing keeping me from committing Seppuku with a piece of the drawer sliding mechanism.

That was 3 years or so ago - I remember our plumber came in and connected our sink and dishwasher on Christmas Eve while I was at work - he didn’t want to see us go the holidays without running water. It was such a nice gesture I will never forget!

We’ve lived with it for a while and are actually removing the uppers, moving the fridge, adding a second pantry.... planning a kitchen with “flow” is actually an art.

That seems like the really good thing about doing it yourself: you're more equipped to re-do it to make improvements.

Yeah I can't hold still during a panorama.
Pegboard isn't so horrible looking once it's painted.
I just bought an old truck, and crudely sewed the headrests back together + fixed the stuck seat sliding thingy
