We are at a vacation home in Lake Tahoe. The theme is "barn". Love these old sinks. They are easy to clean (It kills me the grime around kitchen faucets in the counters), they have a place to dry dishes, and the basin is shallow. Deep sinks are for the birds.

This is the morning. Lighting is integral to the way space is seen and felt. Layered lighting (multiple switched lights) allows for mood variation. I am moving towards work lighting and mood lighting in the kitchen, dining, and living rooms

Glass cabinets add relief and character. I like to use wavy "Benheim" restoration glass. This kitchen was an excercise in flow. Three different doors into the kitchen trisected this space which killed the counter space. The stairs to the basement and the outside were relocated so that the kitchen was on one end while the circulation was moved to the opposite end.

The old kitchen hutch makes another appearance. Why am I so attached to old hutches? Notice the inside back of the hutch is finished as veritcal boards. Attention to detailing cabinets is integral in getting the right feel.

We are in barn theme here. The doors are amazing at 8' tall x 8' wide. They were made from Northwest Door and sash in Oregon and cost just about the same as marvin ultimate doors. The install was definately more time consuming. These type of doors, by their nature do not seal as well against the cold. Previously the large wall out had a terrible 1970s fireplace which blocke...More

The changes to this kitchen were dramatic. From a bad 1980s floor plan and the original squished breakfast and kitchen. We opened up and connected the kitchen to the dining, deck and front. The actual kitchen is small, but its role has shifted so that it is now the center of the house

Unfortnately the paneled refrigerator really kills the budget. Consumer reports lists integrated refrigerators From $5 to 10k. I have generally used kitchen Aid at about $8k. Here the fridge still needs to get pushed back a little and the DW does not yet have its panel. This was a good project with enthusiastic homeowners who bought into the theme of creating a beautiful an...More

No uppers seems to be the latest mantra for beautiful yet non functional kitchens. There is always a balance between form and function. There are no recessed lightis here nor stainless steel hood. The faucet has 2 handles. The microwave is behind the stove in the pantry. If we are going to tell a story, lets do away with the recessed lights. The floor is antique wire bru...More

We moved the whole kitchen to the back of the house from the dark center. It is enlarged, more open, and now has a new deck and access to the yard. Why did the 1920's home isolate the connection to the back yard?

Many of the windows in the formal part of the house are stained. The stained wood is lovely in contrast to white tile. It really changes the all white 2010 kitchen into something with a little more character.

There is always a question about the appliances and whether or not to have stainless steel. I like the story when it fits with the original house. Lighting, hood, refrigerator, DW are preferred to be paneld. We are dappling with the modern here, and we added a few recessed wall washers.
