In a 1925, 800-square-foot home, every inch counts. By adding a turret dining area and opening the space to the living room with a raised bar and archway, the new kitchen is now connected to the rest of the bungalow.
- Working in such a small space was challenging. The homeowners needed to access the basement laundry room during the remodel, so we had to keep construction zone accessible daily since the stairway was on the other side of the galley kitchen.
- Dry rot was discovered beneath the stucco near back staircase and had to be re-framed.
- The showstopping, tile hood design was tricky; The Project Manager ended up building it himself to clear the floating shelves.
- To save on cost and keep the period details of the home, we reused an existing window on the turret and separated it into three separate windows. We were unable to reuse the old trim, so we came up with an inexpensive solution to avoid having to get custom trim made.
