Thank you so much for your prompt reply. How do you go about working with clients long-distance? I live in Alexandria, VA. I came across a photo of a stainless steel kitchen in the Wall Street Journal Magazine a few months ago, and I'd love to recreate a section of it for my very small kitchen. It looks like a Gaggenau cook-top was used and there are modular units that are all connected by a single counter-top. There appear to be cut-outs in the counter for the cook-top knobs. How would we go forward from here to get an estimate of the cost?

By the way, I love the legs on the cabinets. Also, what sort of wood did you use for the floor?

Hello much for how prompt I am. I trust this message finds you well. I lost track of your inquiry and I apologize for letting it get buried. In case you are still goes-

1. How do we work long distance? We completed a whole home remodel in DC right next to Sidwell Friends a few years back as one example. How? I flew there for a measure/photos and input, then a second and a third flight to finish. Other times we rely on the client's or their builder's measurements and photos. Many of our local projects have owners who live elsewhere. We use all manner of tools to communicate and clarify.

2.Article in WSJ- I saw that same article!

3. The theory with the piece you are looking at is that it is a unit. If we can determine how much space you have on the wall you are thinking of or if you could send me some photos and we could look at them and discuss on the phone so I can understand you and your aims- we can then look at that past project costs and compare the size/complexity of that to your discussion and draw up an estimate range for you to consider.

Esther, small kitchens (challenging) are a joy to me. That said, to maximize what space you have, to tighten up and create more advantage with custom, thought through and integrated solutions will be relatively expensive. That expense, for some- is an incredible value and enjoyed each day they are home...

Let me know if you would like to chat further.
