We opened up the wall separating the dining area from the kitchen with a hanging beam in the attic to maintain a smooth ceiling transition. All new flooring was installed before installing all new custom cabinetry by Lignum Vitae, including a beautiful walnut bookcase. Carrera marble counters, new fixtures, and a Heath Tile wall behind the stove put on the finishing touches, all illuminated with a new skylight. In addition, we custom built a new banister with vertical grain Douglas fir salvaged from demolition of the Tracy Army Depot. Stains from old nails just add to the character.
