Kitchens & Waterfalls
What frustrated these homeowners the most was their inefficient, counter-stingy kitchen, which was walled-off from the rest of the house and thus had restricted sight lines to their spectacular backyard waterfall. Oh, and there’s the huge floor to ceiling brick stove. It all had to go. So, we removed the wall, took out the brick oven (not easy) and re-arranged the workflow around a long peninsula. Add in a stunning backsplash, new stove, beverage center and dishwasher, all surrounded by granite countertops and, most importantly, new large windows and patio door to frame the outdoor landscaping perfectly.

We removed and replaced 3 windows and one patio door, the kitchen sink, mudroom door, ceiling mounted light fixtures in entryway and kitchen, chimney from brick cooktop enclosure in kitchen, and wall between kitchen and dinning room. Two structural beams were installed where the former wall stood. Electrical, HVAC and venting were also relocated to accommodate new kitchen layout of appliances.
