All cabinetry in this remodel was site-built for an abundance of storage (see other photos). The chimney-style venthood required additional framing to accommodate its weight.

In this well-illuminated kitchen you will find task and ambient lighting sources from pendants, recessed cans, under-cabinet mounts and natural daylight.

The recessed lighting of this home office space can double for task lighting as well as illuminating art on the walls, and the granite countertop lends a very warm, rich surface upon which to work. Notice how the cabinetry styling is echoed elsewhere in this remodel.
