Martin Remodel

This two-story in Plymouth was in need of a main floor update to accommodate a growing family. The main floor layout was vintage 1985 with a small kitchen open to the family room but an unused dining room closed off to the kitchen area.


We removed the wall between the kitchen and dining room and expanded the kitchen into dining room space. This enabled us to make a highly functional kitchen with three times as much storage, a hutch and pantry, and a big window to overlooking their wooded backyard. Features include granite countertops, Dura Supreme cabinets in Cherry (parameter) and maple with glaze (island), White Oak, nail down hardwood floors with commercial traffic finish and new Marvin patio door and kitchen window.





family room

In the family room area we removed two large entertainment cabinets and replaced them with to smaller cabinets with wood tops. We also refaced (did not need to remove existing brick) with a cultured stone with limestone hearth. We refinished their existing glass fireplace doors to help keep their budget in line.






The master bathroom also needed an update, and with the failing shower walls it was a disaster waiting to flood the first floor. They also had a 4′ x 6′ whirlpool tub that they never used. We replaced the whirlpool with a smaller soaking tub. That  helped open up the area to make a separate room for the toile and enlarged the shower. Features include cherry cabinets, granite countertops, frameless shower door and new Marvin window.
