Thoughtful, detailed design and expert craftsmanship make for a truly amazing transformation.


Removing the wall separating the kitchen and the existing bonus room opened up the kitchen and created space for a casual dining area, complete with a new fireplace and window bench seat. The homeowner’s collection of red cookware inspired the custom pillows and bench cushion.


The casual dining area is filled with natural light streaming in from the new skylights and French doors.
