fabrication soon...what do i need to know?

posted by: Peke on 07.26.2013 at 11:26 pm in Kitchens Forum

The fabricator will measure next week. What decisions or questions do I need to make or ask?

I want a simple rounded over edge.

I can't decide how I want the cutout for the sink. Positive, negative, or regular reveal.

What do most people choose?

Is there anything else I need to know or ask?

Thanks for your help. Peke

Here's a pic of our house, we built it and moved in almost 3 years ago, but it's a mostly DIY, so the final touches are slow going. Anyway, the color is Hardi board pre painted, but BM Tate Olive is the equivalent. Windows are Eagle brand in Cinnamon Toast, trim is Hardi Sailcloth. Our lot is heavily wooded and we like the green, we're in NNY and the pics were taken on the east side of the house, in strong morning sun.

Good luck-

I notice everyone seems to be focusing on finish items.

For windows: Nothing but Pella or Andersen.
For doors: Andersen or Thermatru
Panel products: Advancetech OSB
Plumbing systems: Vanguard PEX
Nails: Maze. Nothing but Maze galvanized for ACQ/PT construction. Coil roofing from Maze or Paslode. All exterior bolts/fasteners from Timberlok. Drywall screws from Grabber; all other screws, without exception from McFeely's. Finishing supplies from Klingspor.

Siding: Certainteed fibercement or Hardie (supply issue only).

Wall systems: at this point, and given upcoming energy costs, SIPs or tilt-up concrete energy-panels.
