All thats left for me to do is install the new hardware and get a few more decorations. Here are some before, mid, and after photos of the kitchen. Entire remodel before the appliances-$700. Not bad for an entire kitchen update, Kitchens Design

  • Backyard Make Over, We have a wooded lot that ba kes up to a golf course. I always wanted to landscape the yard but, with so many large trees I could never get anything to grow except for some lilly of the valley and hostas. Additionally, we had an issue of teenagers cutting thru our yard to get to the neighborhood park. During their treck they would trample some of our hostas  just as they were emerging in the spring.  So I asked my husband to remove a few large trees and create a path and planting islands. To top it off, I wanted a gate at the side of the yard that would make fhe backyard mode private and hopefully make fhe teenagers think twice about  cutting thru the yard. 
I hope you like the results., Yards Design

  • Girl Pink Black and Rock & Roll Bedroom, When my daughter was 3 years old she requested a big girl room with pink, black, rock & roll and unicorns. It took four years of scrimping, saving and lots of elbow grease. Please tell us what you think of the design that she dreamed up and her Dad and I did our best to give her. Thank you!, Girls' Rooms Design

  • Moroccan Accent Bath, The highlight of this bathroom are the two antique Moroccan doors that were affixed to a new custom cabinet. The doors were mounted with loose pin finial hinges. The backsplash consists of gray tile that extends to the back wall and contrasts well with the brighter accent hues of the Moroccan doors.

In this project it was important for the finish of the hardware to contrast well with the antique mirror. The hardware is clean, geometric, contemporary; the mirror frame ornate and looks like it came from another era entirely.

When demo-ing for the project it was discovered that the existing second story was inadequately framed in a previous remodel. In order to support the addition we had to put in new floor trusses to support the existing framing. We also had to add new laminated veneer lumber to support the roof framing. 

In order to install the new trusses we had to remove the interior subfloor to expose the framing. We then cut a 14ft hole through the front exterior roof (under the dormer) to expose existing ceiling joists so that we could install new TJI’s to support the load of the second floor framing. They were then sistered to the existing joists, which enabled us to take out the sag in the downstairs ceiling. We also had to redo all the upstairs plumbing because of the new design. All the new drains had to run perpendicular to the joists by drilling passages through the joists so they met the main drain. The result is a beautiful bathroom set in blues with very effective visual counterpoints that are also essential to the proper function of the room.

  • Reinvented Laundry Room, This mom of young twin boys needed a functional laundry and drop off area when entering their home from the garage. The original laundry room did not have a designated drop off zone, which meant everything ended up on the floor. She also wanted a space to fold laundry and store additional home goods. 

To create the new space, the wall between the existing laundry room and an underutilized spare bedroom was removed. A new drop zone made from Alder with a bench and cubbies was built so the boys had a place for their things. New Alder cabinetry in an espresso finish provided additional overhead storage.  A Kohler apron sink with a decorative pendant light allow for easy clean up, while a built in marble folding counter gives easy transition from the washer/dryer units. A backsplash made from 4x8 subway tile, bar tiles and decorative flower tile accent the walls and blends well with the new porcelain tile floor. Next to the drop zone is a new storage/utility closet. Additional features of the room include a wider opening into the area, additional counter space and cabinets, and a door that leads to the back yard.

Now this busy family can enter their home and easily unpack the day in their new laundry area.
