Remodeling – Before, During & After

The Kitchen
By far, the most ambitious and costly part of our project: Distinctive Home Solutions handled painting walls & cabinets; custom- built carpentry for drawer reconfiguration, wainscotting and island extension build-out; plumbing & electrical updates, granite countertops (by Classic Kitchen & Granite); new appliances (Lowes). We did the lighting above the island (created with inexpensive component parts purchased on Amazon), as well as the backsplash, ourselves – both VERY economically.

Our back yard continues to evolve. We are tackling big projects every year or two. In 2018, we replaced the nasty falling-down, useless fence with a shiny new model. This year (2020), the rotting, lawsuit-waiting-to-happen 25’x40′ deck will be ripped out and replaced with a combo of a smaller deck with a stamped concrete patio step-down on two sides. Here’s my initial deck design

SherwiWilliams has an awesome online color visualization tool – if you are planning to paint, it is a huge help when choosing colors and color combinations.
