Walls were moved to create more and better storage, and to add a "menu-message" center. The attached table mimics a large floor-to-ceiling bay window. Features include: Custom laminate and maple cabinets, granite countertops and backsplash (with yellow marble insert), and limestone floors. The multi-layered lighting is controlled by a Lutron Grafic Eye system.
To create a relaxing whirlpool tub+shower room, the toilet was moved to a different part of the bathroom. The Chamesson limestone walls were sculpted to create the feeling of sand dunes in Hawaii, one of the homeowners' favorite places to vacation.
This powder room was honored with the regional CotY (Contractor of the Year) award in 2006.
The homeowners achieved a multiple-cook kitchen. A new "prep" sink was placed between the refrigerator and cooktop. The pull-out faucet also serves as a pot filler, because of its proximity to the cooktop. The kitchen plan included two microwave-convection ovens, and unique storage accessories to make it work FOR the cooks.
This project won the 2006 Chrysalis Award for Best Kitchen over $100,000. It included a 12'x15' addition, to enlarge the kitchen and create a new eating area, so the family could enjoy entertaining. The unique ceiling was achieved by adding a dormer, which added visual interest to the typical ranch-house roofline.
