the roof has been taking off, rain has intruded, the hole in the floor is where the old chimney was, the blue tape is the size of the new windows that will be installed soon.

Alameda Remodel is Complete!

After six months of schematic design, design development, demolition, framing, rough-ins, drywall, cabinetry, painting, and finish work, our Alameda kitchen remodel & master bath addition is complete.

Keeping the kitchen update in line with the architectural and historical integrity of this 1928 home was paramount. To reconcile the owners’ desire for an open kitchen – a relatively contemporary concept – an arched opening was added, the radius of which matched the arch between the dining and living rooms.

The custom cabinetry and peninsula turned out beautifully – I love the elegance of the inset doors and exposed hinges. The sophisticated Eureka Calacatta marble counters add to a refined touch and the warm brown tones in the marble coordinate well with the reclaimed oak floors. Lastly, the period flushmount light fixture and pendant lights unify the kitchen to the house.

The color palette for the main floor consists of warm and inviting historical colors. Repainting the foyer, entry, hall, living room, dining room, and sunroom/office helped to marry the remodeled kitchen to the rest of the house. Likewise, refinishing the existing oak hardwoods when the new kitchen floor was laid, allowed for a seamless flow between rooms.

In contrast to the warm palette on the main floor, the colors chosen for the upper level are calming and cool. Walking into the master bedroom, one instantly feels a wave of serenity.

In order to accommodate the master bath addition, some space was taken away from the master bedroom and the existing closet and built-in dresser at the knee wall were taken out. A window and an etched glass pocket door allow for more natural light in the master suite. The large shower with white subway tile and a marble accent band is lovely. The custom vanity, medicine cabinets, and cabinets in the WC look so elegant with the marble counters.

This home has such a sophisticated, warm, welcoming feel after the graceful transformations of the kitchen remodel and master bath addition. The homeowners are thrilled with the results. And I am so grateful to have worked with such genuinely kind clients.

Alameda Progress – Week 9

I’m consistently amazed at the progress at our weekly on-site progress meetings.  Vermont Danby marble counter tops are being installed tomorrow in the kitchen, master bath, and hall bath.  The master bath window is in, the master bedroom walls are painted, tile work in the master bath is in progress, and new custom doors have been installed.

Next:  more painting, cabinet painting, hardware, tile, and hardwood floor refinishing

Week 8 Progress at Alameda

The progress at our Alameda remodel is remarkable.  What a difference paint, cabinets, and reclaimed oak floors have made!

This project is SBaird Design’s first collaboration with Edmiston Design Build.  The attention to detail from Heather Scannell has been much appreciated.  Thank you to Shane for accepting our drawings that had previously been completed and updating them when needed and to Blair Edmiston for his patience and diligence during our weekly 3 hour design development meetings  prior to construction.  Jeremy, Edmiston’s on-site carpenter, has been so gracious and respectful of our client’s needs during construction.

This is also our first time working with Creative Creations Cabinetry.  SBaird Design is impressed with John’s craftsmanship, precision, and perfectionism.
