Macusha: Lori Hethmon's Historic Kitchen

Lori Hethmon is the founder, owner of, and lead designer at Granite Grannies. Her home is a historic house in rural Prince George's County, MD. The core of the home (the kitchen and two other rooms) were built in 1809, and the rest of the home was added in 1870. The home was restored by its previous owners in the 1980's. They were faithful to the history of the home. The kitchen floors are the original heart pine. The granite countertops are Macusha Granite, an extremely exotic stone. A couple slabs showed up on the market, and we've never seen anything exactly like it since. The counter are bookmatched so that the large quartz formation above the sink runs down onto the sink counter, hops across the galley kitchen, and runs back up the wall on the other side. The antique kitchen table is also covered in a piece of the Macusha Granite. The cabinets were probably added to the home sometime in the mid 20th century, but every other improvement and decorating aspect was done by Lori personally (including stripping the painted wainscoting, staining it, and then distressing it.) The sink is copper with black patina.
