The original kitchen in this house was only accessible to the garage, laundry and a small hallway into the great room. It was very compartmentalized compared to any other rooms in the house. We moved the kitchen from the back of the house to the front of the house in order to enlarge it, take advantage of a high ceiling in what was an unused dining room. We added beams, a beautiful chandelier and a combination of custom and semi custom cabinetry. The hood was custom as well. What a lovely change it made as it was already connected to an outdoor eating area through the French doors.
