This house was built during the 1920's in McKinney. Typical of homes in that era it had a small kitchen with a butler's pantry that also served as the breakfast nook. The two spaces were separated by a tall set of cabinets and both spaces were very cramped.
We removed the wall and cabinets which separated the two spaces to make one large kitchen. The appliances stayed basically in their original locations and the windows were retained. New cabinetry was built and the ceiling treated with tounge and groove panels and cedar beams.
This is one of my favorite kitchen remodels because the client was successful in choosing materials that gave a nod to the home's historic past while still having the feel of a modern-day kitchen.
