Who: Steve and Sandy Miller
Where: Grass Valley, CA
For the layout, we designated one side for cooking and cleaning, with the range, sink, and dishwasher. The other is for storage, with the fridge, beadboard-paneled pantry cabinets, open shelves, and a plate rack. Even with extras like the glass-door inserts, steel pulls, and pressed-metal backsplash, we spent just $6,000 in materials. And by doing the installation ourselves, we saved enough to splurge on $10,000 worth of new stainless appliances.
Who did the work: I did all the work myself
