More on the Barker Cab Install
Got the appliances and sink in over the weekend, so today DH put the drawers in.
Had a bit of an issue with the DW cabinet, so thought I'd give a heads up. The cab is 24" deep but has 3/4" stretchers across the back at the top and bottom. So its effective depth is something like 23.25. Turned out it was too shallow for the 24 5/8" DW.
Cab also has stretchers across the top front and back as well and sides are screwed to other cabs so after consultation with Chad, we cut out the high stretcher in the back and cut the low stretcher down to a height of 3" so it would fit the channel area in the back of the DW where the plumbing and electric are routed.
I sent Chad the specs for the DW and he's looking at redesigning the cab to accomodate these ever growing DWs.
Funny I was very careful to check the width and height because I knew those have been causing issues but I guess we never put 2+2 together on the depth. Anyway, all's well that ends well.
Back on track. Drawers went in perfectly and look great.
It will probably be a while before we finish out the trim on this and do the frig surround but I thought some of the Barker-philes out there might want to see the progress. Forgive the mess, since we now have appliances and running water, we're moving stuff from the temp kitchen back but at the same time, still doing construction. :-)
