over to their house and show you what is going on and what their plans are for their home renovation so the homeowners did a really good job demoing all the floors in the house majority of it was carpet in the living spaces so that is taken care of they are going to get rid of all of the tile that's in the bathrooms and the laundry room they don't like it it kind of looks like clouds to me they are planning on making over all of the cabinets in the house as well they have not picked out a color so I'll update you guys that on the next episode but those will all be changed out there things are going to possibly change out the carpet in the bedrooms are not 100% sure on that as you can see all the stains in there but they have all the baseboards to rip out these are gonna redo those as well and the master bathroom as well as the guest bathroom they're going to be redoing all of the flooring in there like I said and then they're giving the cabinet's a makeover and then obviously painting and fixing the lights and faucets and things like that so quite a bit of work to still do as you enter into the living space and the kitchen it actually has a small island and they would like to actually expand that they don't have kids yet so they want to just get rid of the dining space in that area it's kind of small anyways and just expand the island which is I actually think is a really good idea for the space it really makes the kitchen much larger and they're just gonna try to max space in there and this is their fireplace that they are actually doing as well they're gonna take that completely out and redo it it's not working anyways so they are working on taking out all of the baseboards in the bedrooms now they saved a lot of money doing this themselves if you can demo your house you can save yourself a few thousand dollars so keep that in mind it is a lot of work but you can put that money towards other things in the house that they don't have the skill to do and that is exactly what they're doing here so for the flooring throughout the house they are looking at these two options right here the first one is a little bit more of a richer warmer brown and the second one is more of a gray one which they like but they're trying to tie it into the granite that's already existing in the house and then so the paint colors are looking at they're leaning more towards the grayish one or something along those lines for all the walls they are gonna be painting the ceilings in this house as well they have a lot of painting to do and they're actually going to be hiring that out because they just can't get to it all so the first order of business that they wanted to tackle was the cabinets on the island they decided to take from one cabinet and make it into three cabinets and they're using a grinder here to grind out a hole at the very bottom of the one cabinet to make room for the electricity to come through there you so he is actually making a template to put underneath the cabinet to attach the cabinet to the wood and the wood is that so we going to be attached to the concrete which you guys will see here in a minute so they're just dry fitting everything right now and then they will go through and attach all the wood to the concrete they are going to be using a single shot powdered activated hammer tool for this I've actually used one of these in our house and it's pretty cool so they're going to do that to all of the boards and then they will put the cabinet on that board and screw the island cabinet to those boards so now that all the cabinets are secured down to the ground and also together they added a piece of plywood on top for the granite he's showing you here now that you want to make sure your screws will not exceed the top of the plywood that way you don't go all the way through he added all the corbels next they added the glue to the top of the plywood so that way the granite would adhere to the cabinets and if this is their new island it is double the size and looks really good the next step is to add the veneer to the sides of the cabinets and to do that they've just glued those on nailed them in and then also used a piece of plywood on the outside with clamps to help bring pressure on that to really get that glued to the cabinet really really well they also added the outlet to the other side of the island as well and you can see how the veneer looks on this side so this is now what their kitchen looks like at this point looking really good they went ahead and sanded most of the cabinet's as well they still have a little bit more to do but you'll have to wait till next week's episode to see all the other DIY projects and the progress of this home renovation
