For this kitchen renovation, the customer wanted more usable space, a more open feeling and wanted their kitchen floor to match the hardwood floors in the rest of the home.  This renovation involved gutting the kitchen and installing new plumbing and electrical.  Oftentimes we are able to do a “kitchen makeover” where we just replace the cabinets, counter tops and appliances. A kitchen makeover was not possible on this job because we moved the sink and some walls.

We removed the old wall separating the dining room from the kitchen and installed a peninsula to make the space more open.  In this picture you can see that we were able to match the new floor fairly well to the old floor.  On the wall to the left, we removed an old sliding door to make room for more counter space.

We prefer to insulate all walls when we renovate.  The exterior walls and ceilings require insulation. We add insulation to the interior walls to make the sound quality in the house better.

The green dry wall, or sheet rock, is water resistant and is used in rooms like the kitchen, bathrooms and basements.

We usually prime and apply one coat of paint prior to installing the cabinets in a new kitchen.  This allows you to seal up the dry wall and makes it easier to have sharp painting lines next to your cabinets after they are hung.  The new floor is covered with red rosin paper to protect it.

The cabinets get installed and the the granite supplier comes by to create a template.  After the counter top is templated, it usually takes 3-5 days before the granite installer returns to install the counter top.

We protect the cabinets with plastic while we paint the kitchen.  We only have to put on the final coat of paint on the walls and ceiling at this point.
