08 | 29 | 2014Case Study: North Dartmouth
In this home the client was looking to open up the space between the existing kitchen and the dining room. One of the concerns we had was how to handle the support for the load bearing wall. The goal was to tuck the beam up so the ceiling would transition smoothly from one room to the next. Based on the engineer we were able to find a suitable beam that would fit above the finished ceiling.
The client also had a few design requests to incorporate into the new kitchen. The first was a wall message center that would also hide the alarm keypad.
We also lengthened the island and added an open end book case. Underneath the book case is a hidden dog feeding station. This custom drawer opens up to allow pets to eat and drink, but can be closed to hide the bowls when entertaining.
The cabinetry is shaker style Cherry with a soapstone countertop. Some other items included in the remodel were a new garden window, microwave drawer in the island, stainless steel range hood, and a textured stainless steel backsplash.
We hope you enjoy this remodel as much as we enjoyed working on it!
