I'm not gloating. If you noticed, I just helped Vic out and answered his questions.

So, last year's quickie remodel of the kitchen was always meant to be a stopgap until we could figure out what we really wanted to do. For the past couple of months we've been changing the 1st floor of our house around. The kitchen and diningr room have swapped places. The next few posts show some of the demo and progress. No, we still aren't finished.

I'm a little behind on pichers. The hardware on the cabinets is installed, the upper cabinets are installed and a few more things are nearing completion.

Still have to finish reinstalling the siding around the french doors.

What is that laminate? Blasphemy!!! Hey, post some photos will ya.

Looks good Joe. I've not use the metal when installing hydronic, interesting. Looks kinda like a reflector.

Yea, its laminate....for now. I needed to get the two french door units and that cut into what I could afford for the countertop. Paying for this all out of pocket, no credit cards, no loans. This is also why my radiant heat won't be hooked up to a heating source until next year.

The metal plates are ThermoFin U from this place - http://www.radiantengineering.com/thermoFinFAQ.html

Pricey - about $10 for an 8' length. I needed 200 of them.

It had been a while since i worked with laminate. Gotta love that contact cement.

Joe, nice job!

It's very rewarding to completely transform the looks of a room.
