Location: West Windsor, NJ
This 1970s kitchen is being renovated to upgrade cabinetry, appliances, and build an eat-in peninsula for bringing the family closer together.
- Lack of seating and storage space
[As Built Plan]
The primary goal is to upgrade and modernize all features by ripping out and replacing with brand new appliances, cabinetry, and drywall. The original Tile floor is to remain.
Create an all-day, every-day living space for every member of the family to gather and be closer together in all that they do. No more cooking in one room and eating in another.

The Progress (updated weekly)
Week 1 Complete:
Demo and framing completed – these recipe cards were found inside a wall!
Rough trades completed and Rough Inspections passed by Thursday, which put us one day ahead of schedule. Drywall installation got a head start on Friday and once it is Primed and Painted with a 1st coat by early next week, Cabinetry installation may begin ahead of schedule as well.
Drywall sanded, primed, and the first coat of Benjamin Moore’s “Baby Blu” painted. Cabinetry delivered on schedule and Dwight was able to begin the installation process. Cabinetry should be finished and ready for a countertop template by Monday; about one week later the countertop will be installed and then Finish Trades can begin.
