This Downingtown home renovation project is one of our favorites to date! These clients came to us with huge aspirations that required focused attention to detail (as always) and Craftsworth Construction (CWC) brought this project to life flawlessly! When I (Matt Morton) first arrived to meet with the clients in their home, it hit me that I was actually part of the construction crew that built the home 20 years ago! Pretty cool to be back two years later and then contracted to work on the home again! The home, as it was originally built, was stuck in the early 2000’s and very colonial which was not the style of the new homeowner. On their list of objectives was converting the dining room to a library, remodeling the kitchen to allow ample counter space for the client’s side baking business, painting the entire first floor of the home, all new hardwood floors, and updating the fireplace. As we do, the CWC team developed a project plan while working closely with the clients to ensure it was perfect in every way. Once we got started, the first step of the project involved getting everything out, and that included the existing kitchen plus approximately 1,000 square feet of tile flooring. Once the space was clean and clear, we installed all new electrical, plumbing, drywall, trim, and painted the entire first floor. We then moved to the cabinetry for the kitchen area, which featured white shaker cabinets for the perimeter along with custom painted, green island. The team then spent several days building bookcases by hand for the library space, painting them, and installing a custom ladder and rail system. The kitchen features quartz counters on the island, soapstone counters on the perimeter, glass backsplash tiles, a column style fridge and freezer, custom floating wood shelves, and custom lighting. Wide plank hardwood flooring was installed throughout the entire first floor, and the fireplace (located in the family room) was painted and trim added, to finalize the work!
