Kitchen Renovation on the Lake

This kitchen renovation made a dramatic difference for this lake front cottage.

We removed a wall, turned a pair of double hung windows into a patio door (what a view), and managed to install a beam into a crawlspace the had about 5″ of clearance below the floor joists.

Once the cabinet and counter top installers had worked their magic, we returned for some last minute touch-ups and to install the tile backsplash.

The homeowners couldn’t have been more appreciative and were looking forward to having us back in the spring for more projects.
