Kitchen Renovation for the Second Time

Wall Demo – Kitchen Flip – Start from Scratch

This house’s kitchen renovation was an interesting project. The young family had inherited a long time family home. A property that was 2 lots combined some years ago, nestled right in the center of Raleigh. How much more perfect could this get. Until we went inside. At some point during this home’s life, there had been an addition. That addition was previously a carport and sunroom, it was now being used as a kitchen. Unfortunately, due to it’s previous use as a carport. It was closed off from the rest of the house.

Our design team worked with a local engineer to develop a plan that incorporated a wall removal. Also, working with the homeowner’s to provide cost effective solutions for this kitchen renovation to creating a welcoming space that was up to date with current build code standards. This would open the kitchen to the dining room, living room, and what would now be the eat-in kitchen area. We also created a more formal entry way, complete with a custom built on-site mudroom. Right off the eat-in kitchen we constructed a new grilling deck. Perfect for an expanded exterior living area as well as much easier access to the grand backyard.
