Redo for Island

posted by: kcthatsme on 10.09.2013 at 02:28 am in Kitchens Forum

I designed this kitchen, for our build, in 2006. At that time, my husband absolutely didn't want an island. We have lived with one, since this design, and now he wants one! We are finishing electrical now so I can still make changes. I've been looking at this for so long that I just can't see past it. Please help!

I also have the Kidde PI2000 in my home, about $30 each, 120 volt with battery backup. I have had them for about 18 months, no problems with false alarms, except when the toast burns!

Below is the link to the story in my 1st post above.

It's one of the reasons you aren't getting a true r-value with fiberglass batts. They have sprayed in fiberglass now that is quite dense and packed when filled in the cavity. Standard batts aren't meant to be dense, but rather what you are out to acomplish, "fluffed out" but r's are lost w/ the air infiltration throughou the batting.Because of this looseness, it has a tendency to settle in wall cavaties leaving gaps up at the top plates of the wall.

What Kind Of Smoke Alarm Do You Have??

If you have the wrong kind of smoke detector it can cause you your life. PLEASE read this article about a tragic event in Barre City, VT that killed 4 people. They had a working smoke detector, BUT it did not work! The best kind of smoke detector is a combination photoelectric and ionization.

Make sure you specify this type of detector when you review your bids or you may get the wrong type of detector. Most smoke detectors installed in homes are ionization because they are cheaper then photoelectric, so what do you think you will get if you do not specify?
