Jack's Cherry KitchenJack preferred dark wood cabinets. We found an imported granite with neutral dark green and black hues. Behind the counter is tiled engineered stone, which is a composite of epoxy resins and pulverized stone, and absolutely impermeable.

Custom ColumnsThe original builder cut the rafters incorrectly. It was a miracle the roof hadn't already collapsed -but it was only a matter of time. I designed two steel columns to capture the roof load across a larger cross-sectional area of the rafters and to transmit that load across the floor joists without violating allowable stresses.

Increased Window OpeningOnly a few courses of brick existed over the opening. In order to replace the lintel for the larger opening (you can see the cut-line at the arrow), an exterior support was attached to keep every brick in it's place. Not a single grout joint was cracked or disturbed in any way.

Under the SkylightLyn enjoying her new kitchen. The white appliances were later replaced with brand new stainless steel appliances to spread costs out over time. The skylight has electric controls and she is able to adjust the opening of the shade and window at the touch of a button.

Coincidence of a LifetimeThis pass-through required rerouting a 3/4" main water line to the unit above. First, the superintendent turned a large gate valve, shutting the water for the entire block of units. For thoroughness, I had the plumber install another valve -even though it would only serve other units above. Three days later, a home improvement crew (from another company) working in the unit above screwed through the piping and water was pouring through the ceiling. What could have taken hours to stop, took seconds.

Brighter LightThe kitchen provides plenty of light when fully lit.
