Project Name: Kitchen Remodel
Location: Capitol Hill
Professional: JAS Design Build, Inc.
Description: This was a major remodel of kitchen and dining room, focused on creating a modern space that fit the character and period-intent of this 1896 Victorian Capitol Hill home. They removed the breakfast nook and bumped out the east wall of the kitchen, eliminating a small covered porch. They then added French doors and an ipe exterior deck, as well as a rooftop deck above the extended space.
The previous kitchen was an owner-remodel, and featured cheap laminate countertops and cabinets that were improperly installed. The new kitchen features a highly-usable galley flow, an extensive built-in bookcase for the owner's cookbook collection, custom dish hutch and semi-custom painted cabinetry, and a 13-ft Carrara marble island. The remodel also updated plumbing and wiring, as well as re-coating and replacing the aging lath and plaster walls in both the dining room and kitchen.
