That gives us a counter top length of about 74". Just a touch over 6'. I do have to get the sink in there somewhere, but also have a cover over it, so we have a bunch more counter than we did originally. Yay!!!

Well, I finally did it. I had to break into the large stash of 1.25 inch Kreg screws.

Next step is to get ready to add some plywood to the bathroom wall, on the kitchen side.

First is to add a brace/framing in between the 2 x 3's close to the 36" mark, height wise.

Then we add some construction adhesive, before putting the plywood in place.

Then we add the plywood, after cutting the top to roughly match the ceiling.

Attach some 1.5 x 1.5 inch wood with a couple of screws to hold the plywood in place until the adhesive cures.

I clamped the left side to hold it in place.

Remember what I said about not being able to have too many clamps? Ah, yea. Used just about all the plastic clamps I had.

Next is to get ready to mount the plywood that will be used as a base for the counter top.

I am mounting a piece of 1/2 inch plywood to the wall, and I wanted to add a little extra strength, so I glued and screwed a 2 x 3 to the plywood, which will help support the counter top.

It will also help support the shelves that I am putting on the wall starting at the counter level and going up. Remember, my wife is short, so most of the storage will be against the wall at the back of the counter.
