Bandit's Big Refit - Part 8: Starting to Come Along

This month, among other jobs, we've been busy with the refit of Bandit's interior. We're now beginning to fit the new doors as we've finally got everything we need. The only thing we're now missing are the door handles themselves which are on order from Timage. We've purchased the doors from a door cutting company online, got the stainless steel hinges from ScrewFix, bought the stainless steel screws from the marina and the rest of the hardware is from Timage.

So, what have we fitted so far?
1) The large cupboard door in the saloon
2) The drawer fronts in the saloon
3) The two cabinet doors in the galley
4) The large door accessing the heads

After getting some of the doors together, we can finally say we're happy with our choice of wood and colour. The white is already adding a fresh feel to the boat and we're only 1/4 of the way through.
The current progress - galley cupboards, heads main door, saloon cupboard door and drawer fronts

We've decided to finish the doors with hardware from a company called Timage. They're an expensive company but their hardware is great quality and is built to last. Just what we want. The handles we're ordered from them are brass with chrome plating and have a rubber insert to grip onto. They will look nice against the white doors. It's all very exciting and we are very much looking forward to completing it before starting the full galley redesigning project, which we've already started to some extent with a new cooker and fridge.
