This project by SkilBilt Construction was precipitated by the desire for a dream kitchen, but involved much of the main floor of the 1980s two-storey home.
The clients wanted a kitchen that was a focal point, central and more open concept. To achieve this, the dining room and kitchen spaces were swapped and integrated into the once closed-off hall and living room.
Several walls were removed, engineered flush beams and new basement posts were added for support and virtually everything was upgraded, from walls, ceilings and floor finishes to electrical and HVAC systems.
The project also required some creative design solutions to reroute and conceal ductwork, including full-width toe kick air returns.
Features include a new built-in gas fireplace and hidden hood fan cabinetry, a stone window sill bench, custom closet storage, programmed lighting and a central island that was tops on the owners’ list.
