Introduction: Massive Concrete-Kitchen

About: ...i am just an avarage guy with an regular job...and some crazy ideas... so live and let diy ;)

A friend of me asked to build him an massive concrete kitchen,... in fact he planed to have a kitchen island in 2 meter by 4 i had to do this... a new challenge ;)

Step 1: Building the Framwork / Mold

So framework was pretty fast done we used plywood and some sprew planks, it had to be done cheap and fast... to reinforce the structure we used some pvc pipe in the middle to fill with concrete ass a column. wee needed one day to set it on

Step 2: Preparing for the Concrete

so now it was time to place the ironmats and the steelbars... to get the hole thing fixed we screwed holes in the screed 10 cm deep and putted the steelbars in

Step 3: Concrete

we used in total 1,5 tons of concrete to fill the hole mold and we wher doing the mixing by hand and transported with buckets from the garage to the kitchen... that day was long started 8 in the morning and finished 3 in the morning the other day :)

Step 4: Finish the Concrete

I used some cement and powdered it on the concrete

Step 5: De-molding

after 3 weeks we thought that the concrete must have been dried long enough and we started carefully on de-molding... that part was the trickiest thing because we had to work safely because we dont wanted to harm the edges... we noticed there have been some little holes so we seeled them with new concrete

Step 6: Finish

We mounted the furniture, (bought at ikea) and placed it under the concrete. after mounting all electrics and sink an etc... tadaa it was ready to use
