Jacqueline and Ted’s Kitchen Renovation

Jacqueline, Ted and I worked together previously when I renovated their bathroom in 2011. Repeat clients mean a lot to us, thanks guys.

This renovation includes:

  • Updating the kitchen.
  • Re-working a wall to house a 3-sided fireplace between the dining room and living room.
  • Building a feature wall in the master bedroom to create a dressing area.
  • Turning a hallway closet into a bathroom storage area.

before: kitchen and tiny opening into dining room.

Day 1: Removed drywall to prepare for the 3-sided fireplace.
Discovered an electrical nightmare and called in Steve, our electrician.
7
Day 1: Simple hallway open closet becoming custom bathroom storage.
11
Day 5: We put up a new half-wall partition to create a dressing area for Jacqueline.
12
Day 5: The wall formerly know as ‘electrical nightmare’ is now on its way to being a 3-sided fireplace.
13
Day 6: Kitchen opening to dining room made from tiny hole (see picture above for ‘before’) into
a huge 7′ x 5′ opening.
14
Day 8: Jacqueline and Ted are evolving the kitchen plan in a huge way… We are now blowing out the entire left-side wall. It’s going to look great and create the open feeling they want.

Day 12: three-sided gas fireplace is installed in the wall formerly known as ‘electrical nightmare’.

Day 13: Looking into the kitchen through the opening we made larger. Electrical and drywall done. Next week is the kitchen installation.

The bathroom is adjacent to a hallway closet, which Ted and Jacqueline didn't need. So, we closed-off the hall way closet, then used the space to create a custom bathroom closet.
