You may remember our previous project at this location. We transformed a 1940’s ranch into a contemporary 2 story pop up; still surrounded by majestic trees and a charming back yard. The current kitchen is extremely small and does not fit their larger family. The Rochman Design Build team’s solution is to flip the current kitchen’s location with the current living room. It will be a major reconfiguration with fun eclectic details, keeping to the personality of our awesome clients on Brockman Blvd. Please visit this current work blog often to see the progress.

This is the current kitchen

 Some perspective as to the actual size of the kitchen

and its location relative to the house. 

This is the current living room that will turn into a totally sweet kitchen.

This is the interior space that we’ll be working with.

At job start up, for every project, we begin with protection measures. Here, OSB covers the walkway to prevent scratches and breaking.

Demolition is underway. The finish floors have been removed to provide access to the structure below.

Under the hardwood floors was a vinyl floor that looks like wood, and under the floor framing was a vinyl floor tile. You never know what you may find when you are a remodeler.... Life is like a box of chocolates...

Rough plumbing is installed. 

The sink will be in the island. Drains and supply lines are ready for inspection.

This hinged door will be replaced with a sliding door.

A window gets infilled to allow more cabinet space in the Kitchen.

The flat portion of the ceiling is removed to expose the electrical.
We will be fishing wires here for new light fixtures.

Blown-in insulation makes a mess….

…but it is cleaned up by the end of the day.
Way to go, lead carpenter Dave!

The new sliding door is installed.

This door will provide great natural light, and an increased connection to the patio.

Electrical locations are marked out and rough wiring is being pulled.

In order to have pendant fixtures mounted on a flat surface, we decided to drop the flat portion of the ceiling by a few inches. It’s a small detail that will make a big difference.

This is the light fixture that will hang over the new island.

And these are the cabinet pulls.

Plaster and drywall has been completed and we are ready to get this project moving again.

The pre-finished floors have been installed, and covered, and the carpenters have set up their saw in the Dining Room. They are working on the Kitchen floors now.
