Our super nice clients in Burns Park are ready for a new chapter as empty nesters. Their kitchen, having served them well for many years, is also ready for a new chapter. We will be renovating the kitchen, breakfast area and dining room, changing the traffic pattern and making small changes that will have a big impact on this lovely 1928 Burns Park home. Please visit this ‘current work’ blog to see the transformation.
