Nice upgrade on the river.....

Project by GaryL posted 04-12-2014 12:18 PM 3023 views 1 time favorited 62 comments Add to Favorites Watch

I have completed other projects for this client and she always spoke of wanting to do her kitchen but the Hubby was just not on board with it. Well, as we husbands know, she had her way.

She did not like the dark cabinets that were there when they purchased the house. they were original Woodmode cabinets from 1980. Actually in very nice condition but just dated with the dark oak.
The new cabinets are also Woodmode, their Brookhaven line.
I need to get some better photos with better lighting…working on that.
Also have added a glass and marble backsplash since these pics.

Before

Nobody could figured out why the fridge was put here. It was like at the last minute they went “Hey…we forgot the refrigerator….oh..let’s just put it here…it’s the only place it will fit…..”

I moved the south wall two feet into the dining room. This was quite involved being the wall was a major weight bearing structure for the roof and attic floor. But where there’s a will there is a way. This brought in some upgrade for the dining room. I wanted to tray, pan, barrel vault, something to the ceiling. It is the only eight foot ceiling in that area of the house. It was just not in the cards so just some trim upgrades.

Before

Some after trim pics.

dark oak, Woodmode cabinets…..hey Gary, the 80s are calling, they want their old kitchen back.

What a difference! The old floor plan was atrocious. That fridge in the doorway!.....WTH were they thinking!

I really like the way you offset the new fridge for the French doors, and the hood, and the cased opening capitals, and the island, the oak floors, the corbels, the picture mold on the window head piece, three piece crown!.. Wow!

Hats off to a fantastic floor plan and one hell of a nice install.

Thanks Mark. Glad to get this one done. I had been going over ideas with her for about two years. Happy she decided to pull the trigger…..good thing it wasn’t pointed at her husband…lol

Great job Gary. I think I might have to get involved in my daughters house. They just bought a house and the kitchen needs re-doing. I wish I could talk him into off white color…he’s a bright white kind of guy. I hope it turns out as good as yours. Did you use poplar for your face frames? Again…nice job!
