The Hill Residence

The Hill Kitchen is a one of a kind space. This was one of my first jobs I worked on in Nashville, TN. The Client just fired her cabinet guy and gave me a call out of the blue to ask if I can design and build her kitchen. Well, I like to think it was a match made in heaven. The Hill's Property was out in the country and she wanted a country kitchen with a twist. All the upper cabinets were pretty much built on-site. The 150 year old barn wood was stubborn with a mind of it's own. All the red, black glaze, lower cabinets were built at our shop. All the joints for the upper cabinets were joint together using box and finger joints. To top it all off we left as much patine as we could on the upper cabinets and topped it off with layers of wax on top of wax. The island was also a unique piece in itself with a traditional white with brown glaze the island is just another added feature. What makes this kitchen is all the details such as the collection of dishes, baskets and stuff. It's almost as if we built the kitchen around the collection. Photo by Kurt McKeithan

i like the poured glass front cabinets, would like a little less opaque. i love the idea of shelves like an old market store, like the style at the Cracker Barrel. I'd like a good, functional combiation of that type of display shelving for dry goods in nice containers, glass, back-lit cupboards, a few solid cubpoards, roll-up cupboards with roll-out shelves, and a few putcher/bread board places on the counter. not sure what material i'd like most of the counter to be, or what type of sink. i think a sub counter turkish or mosaic tyle inspired or copper. easy to clean and doeasn't pool around the sink easily.
