This is the kitchen before I removed all the wallboard to expose the framing. I removed a bearing beam and installed a flush header. The flush header allows a flow through ceiling. This header design allows cabinets to be installed into the additional space with a clean unbroken look. The cabinets are 36 inch hangers which allow for a nice crown moulding for that rich look. The next process is for the plumbing and electrical fixtures to be installed along with the range. Some final follow-up photos will be published upon total completion.

This is the current status of the kitchen remodel, awaiting plumbing and electrical fixtures to complete the project. More to come...

This remodel began when the homeowner wanted an enlarged indoor/outdoor living space. I began by removing a 12 x 12 porch which was too small. I started drawing up the design which is now 18 feet into the yard and 36 feet across the back of the house. The ceiling height starts at 8 feet graduating to 12 feet at the house line. This high ceiling was just what the homeowner wanted, as She envisioned a large screened space with two french doors which swing out into the porch for that grand entrance look and feel. I built the room with a knee wall below the screening which provides privacy and still maintains a great viewing area to take in the large yard.

This is an "A" frame home located on Oak Island, North Carolina. The homeowners are very good friends of mine. They wanted to change the flat roof lines on either side of the home to a gable roof pitch on the right side. On the left, driveway side they wanted a screened porch. Using a monolithic concrete pour as the base of the 20 ft x 20 ft screend porch addition, this creates an eye catching entry point for friends and family to come calling. The durable galvalume metal roof gives the "A" frame home the ability to withstand the coastal weather and eye appealing pleasure.
This complete remodel give this home a fresh updated look.
