Another 1920’s Georgian with a very small kitchen. A previous owner compounded the problem by installing a very large bay window that occupies one entire wall. Without enough wall space to accommodate basic appliances, an undersized refrigerator stood alone partially blocking the hallway and encroaching on the doorway.

This project really demanded some creative design. We recaptured the bay window wall by installing a large custom Quartz counter top housing the sink, dishwasher, and double trash pullout. This area now has ample prep space as well as a view of the yard. Now there is enough room for a full size refrigerator, plus a bonus “landing area” cabinet and counter at the entrance.


“Going into this project we had general ideas of what we wanted in our new kitchen but we weren’t sure of the specifics. One thing that we really wanted (but weren’t sure how to achieve it) was to have more counter space and a more functional layout, both of which are tricky in a Georgian.
I called 3 companies to come over for an in house consultation and heard three completely different ideas for how to re-imagine the room. Marc’s proposal was by far the best of the options we were presented. It was also the most expensive of the proposals, but we knew that we were looking for a quality kitchen remodel that would stand the test of time.
Angel was very instrumental in our choice of flooring, cabinets, backsplash, handles, etc. (I even went back to have him help us choose the paint color). We ended up choosing a very different look than we had originally envisioned. Angel was very patient with us as we went through multiple options, and we are very happy with our final choice. The install process took the exact length of time that we were quoted (6 weeks) and was on budget.”
