So the last step of the wine room project involved me finishing the kitchen. I took out a double window and closed it in when converting the outside space into the room. This left a big empty wall in the kitchen, which I promised the Mrs. would have cabinets to give her the additional cabinet space she wanted........it actually helped me sell the deal.

Today, the custom cabinets were delivered and I installed them after dinner. Still a little crown to install, but they're on the wall!!

You are without a doubt a pro!!!!

.. but in more ways than one.

You have obvious skills in woodworking, but you excel at marital diplomacy. You should be teaching classes in both!

I noticed that too, but figured there was a good reason for it.

The whole build is fantastic. In several years I hope to do something on a smaller scale in the basement. There's just no way my wife would let me take out a window anywhere in the house, unless I replaced it with one or two others. She loves natural light.

Thanks for your comments about the woodwork, very much appreciated.

So, I could just accept the marital diplomacy comment and move on, but that's just not my style, so here's my comment about that:

"I've been teaching classes in marital diplomacy for years, I think wife number 3 is finally catching on"

Yeah, you can't see it in the pic, but the existing wall of cabinets on the left has one cabinet elevated higher than the others, so we mimicked that detail on the new wall as well. It kinda gives you a little more working space underneath and breaks up the monotony of a straight wall of cabinetry........

Mine likes natural light as well, but apparently she likes wine more........

Mine isn't to that point yet, but the basement conversion should be an easy sell when funds and time are available.

With all of the fall wines through MLF, sulfited, and moved into the wine room, she's operating nearly at capacity!!
