Personal kitchen

I'm not a cabinet guy by trade but figured I can do a simple kitchen. Gutted it recently relocated electrical and plumbing as necessary and framed up a small walk in pantry. Drywall is one coated and I slapped together the bases today Once I finish the gyp will level and attach the bases to the slab

I don't see any reason to attach the bases to the slab. Just level them so they are all at the same level. Attach them to the wall stud and to each other where possible. They won't be going any where.

Hmmm...is that one sitting out in the floor going to stay there? I can see where it would need to be anchored.

There's a slide in range going between the two closest kicks with an overhanging countertop extending towards the camera

Might want to hang the uppers first, you may find that easier than working over the bases. Seen pros do it both ways, but something to think about. Post some progress and finished pics.

You can attach the bases to the floor however most of us are too lazy to fight anchoring them to the concrete. When I do loose bases I just level them and attach them to the wall. The only exception of course would be the loose island base. I normally just screw a couple of 2x4's to the floor and set the toekick over it and level it with the rest of the bases and then fasten it to the 2x4's. Sometimes they move when you start screwing them down.

Looks good so far. I like your idea of adding a pantry in the corner. My kitchen needs remodeled, and we want to remove our current pantry that just seems to block the kitchen off (it was originally a hallway closet on the end of the kitchen by the fridge). So I may be thinking of adding this pantry idea to our future layout. I'm interested in seeing how yours turns out

Looks good. That is a typical layout with rocked pantry here in KC. Only difference is the two pantries each side the refrigerator.

Did you leave enough room for molding around ceilings? Notice your addicted to the pocket holer...

Ha I have access to a castle pocket hole machine so it makes it easy to assemble the boxes. Today I hope to spray a couple boxes if it warms up and should have an update soon

Looks good! I started my kitchen remodel Thanksgiving weekend 2013 and finished it in March of this year. 4.5 months was a long time to be without a kitchen, but well worth the wait. Keep up the good work.
