Kitchen Cabinet Installation

Project: Modern Colonial, Episode 16, Part 2

Bob focuses on the work being done in the kitchen. First, Darcie Miller from Wellborn explains the cabinet layout and outlines the design plan. Then, carpenter Paul Anderson starts the installation, while Bob is joined by John Wellborn, who talks about the cabinets themselves.

Later, Bob discusses the countertops with Evan Zgonis from Olympia Marble and Granite, and takes a tour of their fabrication center. Finally, the new granite countertop is delivered to the jobsite and installed.
Part 1: Kitchen Cabinet Design
Part 2: Kitchen Cabinet Installation
John Wellborn (from Wellborn Cabinets) and carpenter Paul Anderson join Bob for the kitchen cabinet installation.

Wellborn clamps cabinet sections together to ensure that the joints are nice and tight and that the units are square and flush. Next, a fluted pilaster is attached to the top. This will receive the crown molding that kitchen designer Darci Miller has chosen. Finally, the end panels are attached to each side.

To secure the cabinets to the wall, Paul Anderson scores a line on the wall to ensure the units will be level. Then he attaches two-by-fours to the wall for the cabinets to rest on while they are being fastened. Once the cabinets are secure, the two-by-fours are removed and the cabinet doors attached.
