Handyman Needed For Kitchen Cabinet Alteration

Ever hear the saying "Leave well enough alone"? Well here is one such instance where I shouldn't have altered what was already in place. I gave away all of my white working appliances and replaced them with new stainless steal appliances only to encounter a number of new problems.
The new counter-depth refrigerator is the perfect depth but it is taller than my old one and will not fit into the refrigerator cabinet because of the hinges.
The 18" dishwasher needs a custom built toekick.
Has anyone else faced similar problems after getting new appliances? Any recommendations or handyman referrals?

  • joanie 20+ year Resident of Jefferson Park

    How long ago did you buy these? The toe kick should have been installed with the dishwasher. One of my siblings returned appliances that didn't fit into her existing kitchen, the measurements provided at the store didn't take into account space for hardware at the back of her stove. She was able to exchange the appliance for something that fit.

  • I had to take about 3/4 inches off the bottom of cabinet and my refrigerator slipped right in

  • can you take the stuff off the top of the cabinet and just raise it?

    also, just go to home depot get some wood and make a box under the dishwasher, just make sure you leave room for the dishwasher door to open and close... done

Chicago's Population Drops for 2nd Year

    It's such an easy fix, too. Take the words "diminish or impair" out of the state constitution referring to state pensions and IL does a complete turnaround. give all state employees a raise, put them all on 401(k), pay into SS and medicare and be done w/it.

Now Alderman Arena is selling the 7-story 100 unit CHA subsidized project as housing for Veterans! This has to be a new low, falsely using veterans as a selling point for a project. The fact of the matter is Full Circle Communities proposal for 20 of the 100 units to be exclusively for Veterans is dependent on getting a grant, not from the Federal Government, not from the Veteran's Administration, but from...Home Depot! Exactly how long that grant lasts, and whether Home Depot will continue to offer grants year after year, or call it quits once they have gotten their money's worth of good-will advertising is another question. Alderman Arena shamelessly suggests that there are 3000 veterans in the Jefferson Park area, needing housing; there may be 3000 veterans, but most of them are homeowners.
John Arena signed a court settlement on January 27th, 2017, stating that he will support a massive up-zoning (B3-5) that has brought us this nightmare project. John Arena violated the rights of the property owners when he down-zoned their property from M1-1, which allowed the property to be used as a storage facility, to B1-1 which does not.
John Arena had the owners' permits for remodeling the building for that use rescinded. The owners sued Arena and the City of Chicago because of his actions.They reached a settlement, and that is the one Arena signed, which gets him off the hook, but sticks the neighborhood with this mess.

http://nadignewspapers.com/images/Fully-Executed-Settlement-Agreement.pdf

  • 45th ward residents should demand to see the terms of that "grant" from Home Depot.For the sake of "transparency" of course..Is it open-ended, is there a "sunset clause" ?? What happens if and when the grant stops ??
