Business Description
Witt Construction has helped hundreds of people find their own special sense of place. Witt Construction is a designer and builder of homes that are fine in detail, striking in appearance, efficient in their use and enduring in Value.

The company was founded in 1987 by John Witt. His design approach is intuitive, experienced, self-taught, broadly educated, conceptual, finely detailed, highly inventive and one-of-a-kind.

John has devised a set of principles that the people of Witt Construction apply to every project, whether the goal is rediscovering the carriage house, paying homage to the American farmhouse, or carefully carving out country homes of honest materials and nesting them on a piece of timeworn land.

Integrity is critical. Integrity comes from knowing one's trade and developing one's craft. Honesty helps us be open in our communication. Value is essential. We construct the space you want while working within your budget.

Someone once said that home is where you "find your heart and center your life." We think these are fine words and fine things to discover in your new home.

White can be a great element in a kitchen - BUT - when everything is white you lose the ability to differentiate features, which is key, regardless of whichever room you're designing.

So white metro tiles, for example, are stunning when combined with dark grout. It's the contrast that makes white stand out. If you want to see some alternatives take a look at my Instagram (same as my username - rhwooddesign).

When you combine white with other elements and textures then you end with a simply stunning kitchen - warm, inviting, multiple focal points and pleasurable to be in. Many of the kitchens in this article look like they were styled by the same person - utterly generic, no risk taking and conventional.

@summery - thanks for the info. I liked the look of the dark upper cabinets already, but knowing they are original and were left untouched makes me appreciate them even more.

We are trying to set up our website with home plans, I do not believe that this house is on there yet, though. If you could give our office a direct call Maggie or Marci will be able to help you with this in more depth. (518) 587-4113

The exterior is a custom stucco with a custom color.
The window and door trim is Sherwin Williams Griffin 7026 and the boards on the house are a cedar trim, if that helps at all.

TrentsCarter,

Please understand we receive dozens of questions a day and do our best to answer as many questions as possible. Some of the information from our older homes was not documented correctly and has since been lost. I have passed your question on to the appropriate Witt staff member and as soon as I hear from her, I will relay the answer to you.

Thank you for your interest!

I loved this window and sent it to the contractor doing my siding and windows. They had me email this photo to their supplier and they were able to copy it - with the pretty vinyl between the panes - easy! I love it. The price wasn't bad, an extra $300. Total eye candy for the kitchen.

You can do this coverup with any carpenter (If its wood) you just need an "insert hood" such as our AREZZO model to fit in!
