The heart of this Mid-60’s ranch remodel began in the kitchen. Expressing that their family of four needed a better space to hang out, dine, do homework, and catch up on family news, the clients realized the kitchen remodel would be more than just a new space to prepare meals. It needed lots of natural light, better work areas and separate seating areas for the active family. Also needed was better access to an expanded outdoor dining area and future entertaining deck and art studio. Central to this new kitchen plan is an active work/eat island for informal eating paired with a separate, large teak table for family-style meals. A built-in TV above the re-faced fireplace keeps everyone entertained and warm while the expanded glass wall and large pendant light keeps things bright. Materials were: slate tile fireplace surround, large porcelain tile floor, sapele flush wood cabinets, custom concrete counters and accent tiles.
In addition to the kitchen remodel, new touches to the exterior included expanded outdoor dining areas, updated entry walk and new cedar accents at the front carport. A matching detached art studio and connecting entertainment deck were added in the second phase.
