2008 Team Award Best Kitchen Remodel Over $100,000

This project involved the creation of a large and free flowing space by joining the breakfast room with the kitchen. The home was built in the 1920s, and in 1946 a screen porch was added. Later the porch was enclosed to expand the kitchen area, but the slanted porch ceiling created an unusual look, which the owners wanted to correct. Removing the partition between the kitchen and breakfast area created a much larger and open room. To eliminate the slanted ceiling, support posts were placed on each end. Engineered flush beams under the sheetrock now support the second floor without the dividing wall. Raising the old porch roof required that the windows directly above on the second story be shortened. The old kitchen overlay cabinets were replaced with new premium grade custom cabinets. The kitchen gained drawers and additional pantry cabinets. The owner selected an extra deep kitchen sink and corresponding cabinetry at sink area was designed. Hardwood flooring was stained and finished to match the rest of the first floor.
