Cherry Kitchen

The house that this kitchen is going into was originally built around 1890. Over the years it has been added onto about six different times. After sitting empty for several years the new owner decided that some things needed to change.

Kitchen Before:

It was decided that the east wall, shown in the pictures above should be removed to open up the awkward space.

After reducing the old kitchen to a blank canvas, the new custom cabinets started to go into place.

What the pictures do not show, is how crooked this old house really is. Though quite stable, 120 years and many renovations have left this building without a single plumb, level, or flat surface. Getting the cabinets just right was no small feat.

The center piece to this kitchen is a 26″ x 16″ end grain butcher block. The top was designed to lift off for easy cleaning in the sink, and is three inches thick.

First round of doors have arrived!
