2011 CoTY (Contractor of the Year) award winner

We received an award for kitchen remodel $30,000-$60,000 by the local Madison chapter of NARI.

The 1960’s foreclosed property had sat vacant for over 2 years and the outdated traffic flow and layout did not lend itself to entertain large groups of family and friends.  A poorly constructed remodel had doubled the size of the home in the 1970’s but the kitchen was a typical separate space that was rarely meant for public access. It reflected the way kitchens and entertaining differed in the past.

  • structural wall moved to allow for open room
  • sitting and gathering spaces would result for the larger room
  • professional feel supplied by the appliances was also found in the lack of traditional upper cabinets
  • commercial metal storage racks would supply any additional storage needed
  • cabinets were stock sizes to address budget issues

The result was more than the homeowner had envisioned. Details and color choices that had been decided as the project progressed had added to the working and entertaining space of their new contemporary kitchen.
