Tom and Jan of Galesburg, IL: We LOVE Our Kitchen
We LOVE our kitchen. We have had a long summer and worked hard doing it all ourselves. The room went down to studs and bare floor. We removed 3 walls and shored up the sagging ceiling with a double 24′ LVL beam. Except for the flooring install, we did it all ourselves with the help of friends and family (mostly Tom). I have attached pictures. Hopefully you still have the old ones to compare.
Tom and Jan based the style of their new kitchen on painted white Shaker cabinets dressed with long stainless bar pulls, decorative end panels on the island, and ogee molding at the toekick on the end of the cabinet runs.. The built-in buffet includes a wide open cabinet for display of special dishes. A wall was removed and replaced by an oversized island with breakfast bar, and two columns and a support beam. The kitchen sink wall features triple windows – in the photo below, you can see the sun streaming in to light up the space.More Testimonials
