Thanks to Sarah Susanka for the perimeter trim detail from "The Not So Big House." Built-ins are flush to the drywall so they could be trimmed out like the doors.

This vintage style kitchen was built in a Nevada City, CA bungalow as part of an extensive remodel. The appliances are made to look like 50's era but are energy star rated with modern amenities. The hand made cabinets feature flush inset doors and drawers, cast farm sink, original breadboards (built by the clients father.) Budget required the backsplash to be put on hold, so we installed simple beadboard as a temporary solution. Inside the walls we performed a seizmic retrofit and insulation upgrade. The floors are beautiful original vertical grain douglas fir (1930's). Not shown is a dutch door leading to the new deck. The lower half of the door has a serving shelf built in, a perfect way to present appetizers to guests. Though small, a narrow pass-thru was widened and given an arched top to open up this kitchen to the rest of the house. It is a fun place to make cookies!
