    Im still in the process of closing but Im trying to arrange my projects and one of the first ones i wanted to do is to add a dishwasher. Im looking at pics of the kitchen and for the life of me cant come up with a good idea for the dishwasher.

    Most people put the dishwasher by the sink but it looks like you can't do that. I'm with you I can't see where you can put it either without redoing the whole kitchen. How about a portable one? Don't even know if their still made. Good Luck!

    Can you build a penninsula out from the sink area?
    Possibly also move the sink into this area?

    Lay it out on a piece of paper,with all the measurements and take it to the local big box store. They have computer programs to lay things out and see what fits....then sell you a kitchen.
    Show us what they come up with.:clap:
    You may even have room for an island.

    thats a good idea. I wanted to use the kitchen for maybe an informal dining area, but maybe I can do that with an island and stools, and put the dishwasher in the end of it

    yea, the simplest thing for a built in DW might be to re-configure the base cabs where your sink currently is. Problem will be finding matching cabs. tear out that entire base section - new cabs, sink, top, DW, etc.

    Yes - portables DWs are still made. Just gave one away where I re-did this kitchen.
