Project Description

This Dover White Kitchen was remodel that involved incorporating the new homeowner’s idea of a contemporary design to include removing the existing 1988 kitchen with traditional oak cabinetry and creating an open space feel with ample room for entertaining guests.

The entire ceiling was removed as well as all the existing plumbing and new plumbing was ran correctly. With the ceiling open and floor joists exposed new can lighting and additional island lighting was able to be added. The ceiling and walls were re-insulated and new drywall was installed. By re-routing the plumbing the upper cabinetry was able to be more efficient and gained cabinet space as well as kept the homeowners original design.

We removed the wall completely as shown in the photo and rebuilt it to include framing, spray foam insulation, the new larger window, and drywall. By opening up the walls we were able to easily add outlets and under cabinet lighting wiring.

All existing plumbing in the house was removed and replaced with an PEX plumbing system and new DWV piping, and re-routing everything correctly.
