Once a year!

We do a more traditional kitchen project once annually.  As designers, we appreciate other styles & tastes, so even though the lion’s share of our projects are modern & clean lined, this rare traditional project this past summer was one for the archives.

Before

before overall

 

After

We expanded the existing space a few feet out so we could get decent clearances all the way around the island. The wing wall remaining at the end of the sink cabinet run housed all the existing electrical feeds for the entire house. It also concealed a load bearing beam that held up the entire second floor.

We were able to reuse the existing exhaust duct for the hood, and replaced some of the hardwoods & then refinished the whole floor.
