Describe your project, what makes it unusual, and/or any outstanding characteristics.
This house is located on a beautiful horse farm. Unfortunately, the original kitchen was a postage stamp located at the interior of the residence, with no windows to view this magnificent property. Working with the homeowners desires, existing spaces and an inspirational magazine picture we were able to design a stunning new kitchen that ensures a fabulous view overlooking our homeowner's grazing field. The cabinetry was 100% custom fabricated in our shop in Berryville, VA. The traditional elegance of an inset beaded recessed panel door style was embellished with heavy duty antique brass wire mesh at glass front units. We combined the homeowner's favorite shade of green (custom mixed) with natural black walnut locally sourced for added warmth. We paid particular attention to all details. Even details as small as outlets were very carefully contemplated. Our skilled carpenter fabricated and trimmed out pantry cabinetry that gracefully climbs the steps. All of our cabinet boxes are 3/4" Maple plywood (finished) or 3/4" Walnut where exposed. All moldings, trim, window casing and barn door were fabricated in our shop. The homeowner was thrilled with her new show stopping, bright and unique custom kitchen!
