Building a fridge enclosure
We spent $48.00 so I think that was a very successful decision I made way back when.
Here is how we did it.
We needed to move our upper cabinets over by 3/4" to accomodate for the thickness of the plywood gable we were going to be adding. So we started by moving over the base just a little and then moving over the uppers over to be be again centered over the bases. We attached a ledger board to the wall , unscrewed the cabinets and carefully moved them over and reattached them to the studs. Pretty easy enough and $0.
Here is something I learned , the uppers are 3" wider than the bases in this area because of the enormous laminate counter overhang, so we had a gap to deal with. Oh I recently got a table saw so it was simple enough for us to make a filler strip to fill in this gap, its so nice to have all the tools you need for a job.
I used particle board screws. I used a sheet of paint grade plywood , ripped down to 28" by the Home depot experts , I can not rip down a big sheet of plywood , nor do I have room to transport a full sheet home..
I think we can call that two steps forward for the kitchen. I think I may even start painting this week.
