Flooring: Floor warming

Half of this extended kitchen sat over unheated crawl space, so I needed a solution to keep the new tile floor as warm as the half that sat over heated basement. Electric mats were the perfect solution as they were thermostatically adjustable and had minimal impact on floor height.

Signage: Custom street sign, and more

The lane had only 3 homes on it. There was no signage as it was a private lane, and the mailboxes weren’t in numerical order. So, I designed and built this all-inclusive sign post to identify the lane and incorporate each resident’s mailbox.

Stonework: Veneer stone wall

After clearing some overgrowth, I found a wall—unfortunately it was cement block—so I covered it with a combination of manufactured and natural stone, for a more elegant look.

Plumbing: New sink, disposer and faucet.

I needed a drop-in style sink to work with the existing granite countertops, so I chose this very thin rim model for a nice clean update.

Cabinetry: Spice storage and message center

This cabinet combined a message center which included a magnetic surface with a chalkboard finish. The spice storage was a perfect fit for the wall adjacent the cooking prep area. Additionally, it had a display area for collectibles.

Cabinetry: Refaced and new

These were perfectly good cabinets, just a bit outdated, so I veneered them, replaced the doors in solid cherry, and added new hardware.

Fireplace: Marble Veneer

One of my first “big projects”—I found a rare remnant of marble that was no longer being mined, and had just enough to cover the original brick facade. It was a challenging install (talk about losing your religion), however it turned out great.
