Design. Build. Enjoy.
We had to think outside the box to make this outdoor kitchen flow. The answer was a triangular pergola timber-framed with cedar. Also pictured: crab orchard stone floor, cabinetry and flowerbeds, gas firepit recessed into peninsula, granite countertops, cedar screen porch framing and copper screening. (can't even see it can you?)
This used to be part of the laundry room. After some careful measuring, clever framing and material selection we had just enough room to slide the new stackable washer and dryer in and surpassed the building code minimum width for a shower by an entire quarter of an inch.
Nothing real interesting here. Just a flawless tile job.
Existing conditions we had to deal with on this Inglewood kitchen in order to make it this beautiful: wicked sloping floors, knob and tube wiring, crumbling lathe and plaster, lead paint, dachshund dog that does NOT stop barking.
They wanted a timber-framed patio cover with an outdoor fireplace and a couple of fans, the sound of rain on a tin roof, giant curtain rod for the late afternoon sun, planter bed to break up the monotony of the existing concrete jungle, and a pesky little drainage problem to go away. This is what we came up with.
The owners got in over their head when they tried to do this bathroom remodel themselves due to water damage and termite issues. We took over after demo. All good now.
