Kitchen cabinet refacing is a whole little remodeling sub specialty. If you do a search you can come up with a handful of local companies who do it. I can't make a recommendation, but several of my friends were happy with their kitchens afterward. If you like the basic layout and the cabinets are in basically good shape, why remove the whole works just to get a different front? At the same time you can also add a nice new countertop and, if you like, a different sink.

Open house today for this lovely mostly-original Herb Fritz mid-mod near the lake.

I especially like the stone fireplace wall.

Does the carpet magically disappear from the kitchen between picture #11 and #12?

All that paneling is very retro.

Look at picture 9. The carpet is only in half of the kitchen.

You can see it in #10, as well.

Not sure why you'd put carpet in even half of your kitchen.

To cover up the trap door.

Agreed. Carpeting in kitchens is very close on the grossness scale to this...

50% off all doors at the ReStore this week. I picked up a brand new, insulated exterior door with the large oval window for $50 for myself & a heavy duty, 5' wide, steel double-door with the frame for a friend for $25. They have neat stuff.

For you light-sensitive types, I give you 8691 Plainfield Rd.

Minimally lit. Minimally described.

Might want to change those water filters in the basement.

Minimally lit, minimally described... and strangely sinister.

I'm not goin' anywheres near that one.

Dark and on a street named after our favorite serial killer's home town. What's not to love??

The graffiti above the TP holder in the one bathroom was a nice touch.

A lotta green for not a lotta green. Even the kitchen cabinets.

I see a flip in it's future. Let the greying begin!

A little elbow grease? Understatement of the day.
