Finished … at last!Posted: April 4, 2014
For some reason the problems that dogged our earlier efforts suddenly disappeared, and by lunchtime all but two of the carcasses were assembled and installed. Once we had eaten it took us very little time to complete and fit the remaining cupboards, and all that remained to be done was to fit the doors and handles.
In the past I have had trouble fitting IKEA doors on to their carcasses, but they have now changed the design of their hinges, and the door fittings just click into place. This speeded up the whole process of fitting the doors, and it took us less than an hour to install seven doors … and that included fitting the handles to the doors.
The one thing that we have not yet added to the cupboards are the shelves, but as these are adjustable we want to work out where we want them before fitting them. I also have a car load of cardboard packaging to get rid of … and this means that I will be making a trip to the local re-cycling centre tomorrow morning.
