Chicory's Galley Refit
This picture was taken during the pre-purchase inspection of Chicory.
The only changes we had made to the galley prior to this renovation was the installation of a larger refrigerator and a two burner cook-top.
The renovation plan called for a convection oven/ microwave for the center of the port side wall, which required the face of the cabinet to be moved back three inches. This picture shows the demolition of this area and the removal of the existing counter-tops.
This is the start of rebuilding what would become the drawer below the oven. There is an engine-room ventilation hose at the back of the drawer that needed to be boxed in.
This is the test fitting of the cabinet front showing the clearance for the drawers to the right and the oven handle. (the reason the cabinet face needed to be moved back three inches)
Once all the components were fitted, the teak plywood could be glued in place. This is how the pieces were clamped in place until the glue dried.
This shows the rough openings for the drawer and the oven after the gluing process was completed.
This is how the new cabinet front looks with the oven and drawer in place.
The sink side of the galley had a small set of drawers and a trash compactor. All were removed to make space for a large set of drawers and a new single bowl sink.
The sink base cabinet was built and the interior was finished with teak.
Plumbing, electrical and finish work was completed on the sink cabinet.
The box for the large set of drawers was built.
Full extension drawer-slides were installed.
Drawers and drawer fronts built and installed.
To insure a perfect fit 3/4" plywood templates were made for the counter-tops. These were supplied to the counter-top fabricator to replicate in Quartz.
