Home > Lyn's Kitchen: Tenleytown

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.
Happy CustomerLyn is naturally a cheery individual, it was a great pleasure making the kitchen of her dreams!
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.
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.
InsulationThe kitchen has three exterior walls, and insulation was required. We insulated the walls and the ceiling. The two large vertical bars in the back are custom columns.
