Hales Corners – Kitchen Remodel and Custom Carpentry – WRA/NARI Award Winner
In June of 2007 we did a complete remodel of this customers bathroom. She called us back asking if we could continue updating throughout the entire first floor. We knew extensive custom carpentry would be utilized to complete this remodel. We began in the kitchen by eliminating the enclosed foyer area to make way for more storage space and installed a beautiful solid wood exterior door that we had stained and finished which really opened up the room. She wanted to keep the flow from room to room, so instead of ceramic flooring, we installed new 2 ¾ inch Oak tongue and groove flooring that was sanded and finished along with the rest of the first floor. Five inch recessed can lights were installed along with new drywall on the ceiling. We installed custom Oak cabinets with a low sheen “cherry” finish along with custom granite counter tops and euro style brushed nickle hardware that blend flawlessly with the new stainless steel appliances. The finishing touches in the kitchen are the Kohler stainless double bowl sink and Kohler high arch faucet.
The dining room was updated with 5” recessed can lighting along with new drywall on the ceiling as well. We installed a custom 3 piece base molding that was stained to match the refinished Oak hardwood floor.
The den had very old built in hutches along the outer wall that were original to the house. We removed these to open up the room and give our customer an at-home office. The same treatment was given to this room with new recessed lighting, dry-walled ceiling, 3 piece base molding and a completely refinished hardwood floor that gave her more than enough room to get things done in the comfort of her own home.
Last but not least, we completely rebuilt the outside of her fireplace using Travertine tile and finishing it up with a new fireplace insert. What use to be an eyesore has now become the centerpiece of her livingroom.
