As the original owners of this 1983 custom home, the homeowners tackled one project at a time over the past 40 years to make this their forever home. With the purchase of a new refrigerator that did not fit the existing space, now was the time to undertake a comprehensive kitchen remodel. The original kitchen had a drop ceiling and wall in the center to conceal the gas and power lines that dropped down from the ceiling. Adherence to a defined budget was essential since there were future projects to complete.
A central island with a sit-down counter was planned along with raising the ceiling, removing the utility wall, and expanding the entry into a formal dining room to improve flow between rooms.
Eliminating the wall that housed the gas and power lines meant trenching under the concrete below the pad to relocate the lines. Once the drop ceiling was removed, it was discovered that amendments needed to be made to the kitchen’s electrical configuration for safety. Ready-to-assemble (RTA) cabinetry and extra pieces were ordered to accommodate a new coffee nook and enclose a wine fridge adding cabinetry for glasses.
In the words of our homeowners, “Every day we walk into our kitchen and ask ourselves why didn’t we remodel sooner? We are thankful to Lenton Company not only for the work they planned but for the discovery of potentially catastrophic electrical issues when the house was built that they remedied. We will absolutely use them again on future projects already in the works.”
