This is a great thread! I think you have gotten a lot of good advice regarding finding the "integrated kitchen spot" compromise. I agree that spending a lot of time on GW can make you think anything but built in/paneled appliances is low end.

I don't know what your local building codes are like, but in many juridictions there is no way they would allow the duplex receptacle nor the control panel to be mounted close to the sink like that.

A lot of jurisdictions now require receptacles within a certain distance of water (ie sink) to be on their own GFCI *breaker*.

I don't know what they would say about the control panel. An inspector would probably have you relocate it.

I would have relocated the plug above the sink.

National standards, at least as of about 5 years ago, require that all kitchen and bath outlets be either a gfci outlet, or a slave of one. Therefore the outlets by the sink must simply be on the same circuit as a gfci outlet.

Thanks, and I already thought of this. The duplex by the sink is already GFCI.

The control box in its entirety is mounted on 12+ feet of wiring so if I ever need to relocate it, easy. However, even with lots of splashing I haven't even got a drop of water on it.

DONE and DONE! Name plate attached. I kept the Kal hop for a shout out to his website.

Only a few steps left to finish this room off.

Look forward to seeing how you mount your taps in the PVC. Copied from somewhere here? I like the concept with built in capacity for push/pull fans (I assume).

Wow! I sure missed out on this from the get go, but it was fun reading it and seeing it come together all at once. Beautiful build. Oddly, I think the reclaimed wood walls is one of my favorite parts.

I don't read this site too often, and don't remember any other home built pass through, but I'm sure it's been done before. I wasn't planning on using PVC, I was going to use 4inch mild steel, but it was just too heavy. I will figure out the cooling next, I'm not worried about it, I built a nice T style 4 tap while back and cooled it fine with 1 fan.
