This 1970s kitchen is being renovated to upgrade cabinetry, appliances, and build an eat-in peninsula for bringing the family closer together.


The Problem:

  • Outdated
  • Lack of seating and storage space


[As Built Plan]


The Goal:

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.


[Proposed Plans]


The Dream:

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.

January 3 – February 8

Week 1:  Demo; Framing

Week 2:  Rough Trades/Inspections; Insulation

Week 3:  Drywall; Paint
