Attley st

This screened porch, kitchen, and laundry remodel presented a couple unique challenges that were the focal point of the project. First, the laundry was on the 1st floor directly behind the kitchen in a 6'x6' room that would work perfectly as a pantry. The existing pantry was located in an awkward closet in the center of the house, but where could we relocate the laundry? Second, we wanted to remove the pantry walls, but we couldn't determine what kind of load bearing they had until we knew the direction and size of the ceiling joists.

We built the screened porch first, simply extending on to the existing porch gable roof, while we worked out the remaining details on the interior. Using 6x6 hollow columns and Elite treated materials from Southern Lumber & Millwork, we trimmed out the roof to wall connections beautifully with what is our standard procedure on all of our porches.

Once the screened porch was complete, we gutted the kitchen after prepping the interior with Zip walls, floor protection, and a negative air machine, another standard procedure with our interior remodels. We installed a very large beam in the ceiling, supported by posts at either end, and lined every inch of the wall with full custom cabinets. The cabinets were sprayed with a Minwax sealer to yield a gorgeous natural maple finish. The counters were all double stacked 3cm quartz, with waterfall legs on either end of the island. Talk about a stout island! This appliance package was very complex, with a double steam oven, Miele coffee maker, Wolf subzero fridge, and Wolf cooktop. Needless to say, we didn't hold back on the Rev-A-Shelf accessories!

So we determined the laundry could be relocated upstairs, in a 5'x5' closet in the frog room. We matched the style of the maple slab doors in the kitchen, and installed a recessed ironing board. The result was a very functional little laundry room within the existing space.

Lastly, the interior stairs were added on as a "while we're here" kind of thing, and it sure was worth it. Adding red oak plowed rails and cable railing really tied the whole kitchen and living space together, to make it look like it had always been there.
