Current Cabinets We Have

As I noted in a previous post, the cabinets in place right now have really nice doors, but the refacing job stinks. Also, the layout needs to change a bit with the double oven we are adding in. The challenge is to get the sizes we have to work with the modifications we want to do. After about 10 hours of fiddling with the sizes and a layout in Microsoft Visio, we have a plan we like. I will attempt to upload the before and after drawings.

The doors are raised panel cherry. The detail is simple, but very well done.

The refacing material is OK, but the workmanship is poor and the underlying cabinets are very low quality - all 1970's particle board and paneling. There is no way this would fit into the type of remodel we are trying to do, so we are ripping them out. Here they are with the doors removed.
