Two sisters and their parents share ownership of this beautiful home, so it is loved by many family members and four generations! The renovation project started with a simple window replacement but quickly turned into a larger project. I was asked to take a look at the kitchen space and give options on how it could be more accommodating for a larger group. The original kitchen was very closed off from the living area, with just a small opening to catch a glimpse of the lakeshore view. With logs covering the walls and a large stone fireplace, they wanted to keep a rustic cabin feel with more of an updated look.

There were many challenges throughout this project. With all three families living either out of town or out of state, a lot of ZOOM meetings were utilized. Designing the layout was challenging with heated concrete flooring, water pipes, and a support beam that was needed. With careful consideration of the sink placement and creatively hiding the pipes and other features this space is a one-of-a-kind kitchen that makes a statement when entering this home.
