The wood flooring used in the majority of the first floor is ‘Reclaimed Chestnut’. This is a unique floor because there are very few Chestnut trees still living. The lumber comes from old barn beams and is turned into this beautiful flooring. The dining room wainscot has a Chestnut cap and the corner cabinet has Chestnut as well. This piece was built on site and hand-painted to look like an antique.
This kitchen design of the kitchen was an essential part of this whole house remodel as the owner is a former chef and loves to cook. Reclaimed barn beams were also used as a design element in the kitchen.
The living room is highlighted by the large stone fireplace, cathedral ceilings and tongue & groove ceiling planks. Accent lighting was placed in the crown molding detail.
The vanity and tub surround in the master bathroom are a combination of Bird’s Eye Maple and Oak. The large shower and Jacuzzi are nicely set in this space.
The customers worked with my painter to do a lot of faux finishes primarily in the kitchen and hallway. They even included a grape vine hand painted stencil throughout the kitchen and stair landing. The kid’s bedrooms got some special touches as well. An army theme for the boys room and a playful picket fence and garden in the girls room.
Even the powder room has some custom touches. A custom made vanity with and antique finish is topped with a cherry top and vessel sink.
