BEFORE: The project begins with laying out the cabinet location.

AFTER: This project required two modifications using stock cabinets for the double oven and the 48" stove and hood.  Here, the oven cabinet was fabricated from scratch.  Over the hood required a 30" cabinet to be cut down to 15".  And the base for the stove was two modified 24" base cabinets.

BEFORE: The owner of this kitchen wanted to salvage the countertops, so I demolished the old cabinets from under them without removing the countertops . . .

AFTER: Paint was matched for the woodwork to incorporate the bar into the kitchen area visually, plus adding a wood matching panel under the bar.

This Hutch Area used upper cabinets below, and a matching skin panel as a backsplash to create the look of a piece of furniture.  Note the expanded frieze between the cabinets and the ceiling so there would be no space.

I matched stain for new woodwork for the room to match the new cabinets.

. . . and installed the new cabinets under the old countertops.

Then I added new tile.

BEFORE: Demolition and removal of cabinets, tile countertops, and tile floor.

AFTER: New cabinets, maple butcher-block countertops, farmer's sink, oak floor, and Moraccan tile.
