WRA, Bronze ~ Delafield, Addition

The original house had dated bead-board cabinetry, laminate countertops, a miss-matched tile floor, poor-visibility fluorescent lighting, and a “seldom used” formal dining room. Because the rest of the “main level” had vaulted ceilings, the design warranted an open concept “eat-in” kitchen.

The original kitchen was gutted and the roof was removed, retrofitting trusses into the existing roof before the addition could be constructed.

A 10’x24′ 2nd story addition was constructed, vaulting all of the ceilings including the original kitchen area and dining room.

The T111 exterior siding was removed from the original house and EIFS (Exterior Insulated Finish System) was installed throughout.

New “open-air” casement windows and top-lite fixed trapezoid windows allow lots of natural light to encompass the addition.

Custom oak cabinetry that included full extension soft-close drawers and “euro style” soft-close door was installed.

Cabinet accessories included; multiple cutting boards, garbage can pull-outs, stemware slides, full-height spice racks, two lazy-susans, a cookie sheet pull-out, and a tilt-out sponge tray.

A “one-of-a-kind” two tier island allowed seating for six!!! Polished granite countertops cap the base cabinetry and two undermount faux granite sinks were installed with matching “Kohler” goose-neck faucets and flush-mount buttons for the new InSinkErators.

A double oven/convection microwave and warming drawer add to this master piece.

The upper cabinetry and cloud like double-tier drywall soffit (that matches the island in shape) were suspended from the ceiling using powder-coated steel/rods, giving it a true “open concept” feeling. A walk in pantry was constructed with adjustable melamine shelving.

A porcelain tile floor was laid in a Versailles pattern and was illuminated by recessed canister lighting, under cabinet xenon lighting, and above cabinet LED lighting.
