Thanks for the thought, but I do not think so. We do have some Ikea items in the house that' I've put together (random end tables and such), but the cabinets do not have that same "feel."

If Blum is saying it is not theirs someone knock it off most likely the Chinese, since this new construction the builder may have used a local cabinet place, they might have an idea what those are.

This gets close https://www.wayfair.com/home-improve...-erta1279.html

I have euro cabinets in our basement office and they have that one which has the screw in the side which allows you to set the drawer front level and has the same mount as yours, Berta may be the manufacturer.

of you can replace the entire things from homedepot

I knew with a little bit of internet detective work I would find it, but these do not seem to be sold in the US only the UK/Euro.
https://www.fiteo.co.uk/shop/index.p...product_id=138

however this looks to be the actual manufacturer, a polish company.

Yowza! That's it!!

The internet can be a great place after all. No idea how you figured that one out - I spent hours and hours looking all over and convincing myself it was at outdated Blum product. Now if I can figure out how to order it....
Glad I could help, I did search on euro metal box drawer slides and looked at all Google pictures and saw your contractor.

I would say Modern Prairie, personally.

The contemporary interpretation of Frank Lloyd Wright's Prairie/Usonian style.

Yeah I'd say somewhere between Modern Prairie and Mid-Century Modern.

Love that you removed the crown molding and the changes suit the style of home much better. Great work.

Absolutely. MCM leaned heavily on FLW/Usonian characteristics in many instances.

Sorry, (American) mid century architecture hobbyist nerd here.

I purchased the house next door to ours about 9 months ago, complete gut, now at point of completing plumbing/electric rough in. Got a package deal on roofing both houses are being done now. We live in an urban area where houses are close together and lots are small (houses from 1910's), so bought the house next door, plan to rent it out, then build a two car garage on this property but keep it for myself. Have 1 car at our house so total of 3 spots.

Once electric/plumbing are done and inspected, with roof done I will be dealing with insulation. Want good insulation but with it being a rental there's a limit to what makes sense. Had planned on doing spray insulation on 3rd floor walls and underside of roof. One company said they would only use open cell as it is water permeable, if there's a roof leak it will come through the insulation and show on the drywall. Negative is open cell isn't as good of an insulator. Other contractor only would use closed cell because of R value and said roof shouldn't leak, correct but it could and if it does the water will take an extremely long time to get through the lumber, likely with a lot of wood damage.

Any thoughts?

Thanks for the kind words!

This is the link to the fireplace unit on Wayfair. its reasonably priced and produces great amount of heat. Doesnt have electric ignition like the fancy ones but i ran conduit anyway in event i want to upgrade later,. This one has ignition on battery and super easy to operate. I also fabbed up a custom aluminum cover for the top so i can use the firepit as a table due to such small amount of space in the sideyard.




Here is a quick pic of the kitchen
