This is a complete gut renovation of a small galley kitchen on Brattle St. in Cambridge, MA. We knocked down the wall between the kitchen and dining room. We took it doen the the study and then totally redesigned and built the kitchen. We designed, fabricates and installed all the custom casework and cabinetry.
We completly gutted this kitchen and relocated the range across the room. The new layout called for walling off an existing closet, so to squeeze as much space as possible out of this renovation, we custom built an alcove with a sliding shelf and glass door. Since the cabinetry company the client's used did not carry anything that they could use as a broom cupboard, we custom built a corner cabinet and made it to match all the rest of the new kitchen cabinetry.
This project was a partial gut of the middle unit of a 3 unit row house in Inman Sq. Somerville. In an effort of keep costs down, the clients took on the task of demo, insulation, floor finish, and painting, so these pics show the site prior to floor sealing and painting. We opened up the first floor and created a small half bath next to the existing staircase. On the second floor, we created a new full bath and vaulted the ceiling over the stairwell and in the back bedroom.
Fat Ram's Pumpkin Tattoo is the first tattoo shop in the State of Massachusetts. After 10 years, they chose to expand. The new space was in rough shape. We kept the existing floors and gutted and rebuilt everything else. The original storefront was clad in faux-stone and mortar and hid a tremendous amount of water damage and framing rot. We tore out the existing storefront and framing, rebuilt it, and installed large 1" thick thermal insulated glass windows and custom Sapelle Mahogany cladding. The interior was taken down to the studs.
This is the buildout of a 3-Season Porch. There was a small existing roofdeck atop the addition. Upon excavating to test the sturdiness of the footings, we discovered sill rot and stryctural defects. We jacked the addition in place, removed the insufficient footings, dug and poured new footings, and reframed the sill. After the structural issues had been addressed, we framed the posts into the existing framing and framed a hipped roof assembly with two skylights.
This was a complete gut renovation of a kitchen in Quincy. We pulled up the linoleum floors to reveal the original Red Fir wood flooring. We opened up the partition between the dinning room and kitchen and installed a peninsula cabinet and countertop to serve as a breakfast nook. We also installed custom wainscotting and chair rail along the walls of the upstairs hall, stairwell, and living room.
The original porch was in terrible shape. The footings were stacked cinderblocks with no masonry joining them. The railings were very loose and held together with bungee cords. The staircase has been improperly built and could not safely support more than one person on it at a time. We completely tore the old porch down, framed a new porch, flashed and re-shingled the exterior around the porch, and put down new pressure treated decking and fabricated and installed new pressure treated railings, balusters, and a gate at the top of the staircase.
