The Barry Project

Kitchen/ Addition/ Whole House Remodel.

The white cabinets are made of glazed painted maple and the island is stained knotty alder. The drawers are dovetailed solid maple with Blum self closing under mount slides.

There is a white “authentic”porcelain farmers sink in the peninsula which was a 4 hr. nightmare to install.

The floor was 1 1/2” out of level and the outside wall bowed in 1 1/4”.

The cabinets had to be scribed perfectly to the rolling floors considering the cabinet’s open toe kick with feet.

We cheated on the install in 5 different spots to make up for the angled floor but you would never know.

Note: A hearty shout out to Mark Onsgard for stepping up and helping me with a difficult install. Good job.

The Addition included extensive trim in the cupola, columns and wrapped beams

A fireplace mantel

Entertainment Center

Walk in pantry with simple shelves

Locker Cabinet

And a basement recreation room with 2 cedar closets and a new 2 1/2 car garage.

I wanted to take better pictures but as usual, the client wanted to load the cabinets and counter tops with tons of stuff as soon as the last drop cloth was picked up.

I didn’t make much on this job, but that’s OK, it was worth it. The clients were great (good reference) and everybody worked together smoothly and brought their A game. No mistakes.

I believe profit should never dictate the outcome of a project in motion just because “someone” under estimated.
Keep track, Learn from it, and hopefully make it up on the next one. That’s what I do anyway.

Nice job.

So much to ask about with this project. So much I like about it. I’m really drawn to the fireplace mantle.

Hey Mark,
The wrapped diagonal beams in the living room were fun to build, as you can imagine. I wish I had a close up picture of the joinery to the cupola and outside horizontal beam. We had to use two different saws that angled left and right to make it work.

The mantle was pretty simple. I guess that was the idea, more of a country feel. I really liked the stonework too.

Thanks for the compliment.

Great work. I like the brickwork on the stove-side wall. Very well done.
