The scope of Dr. Estroff’s interior remodel focused on the kitchen and the approach from the front door. The objective was to open up walls and make updates to the surfaces and systems.
Chandlee and Sons Construction installed a new bar centerpiece in the kitchen topped with onyx stone lighted from underneath to make the stone glow. A flush mounted copper sink with new fixtures replaced the old sink.
The kitchen ceiling was opened up to the rafters. New drywall was hung on a floating track system with a ¼’ drop channel to hide the wiring for the track lights which were flush mounted and set on motion sensors with multiple circuits. This ceiling system also provided sound proofing. Blown glass pendant lighting was installed on a dimmer switch to enable the homeowners to adjust the intensity of the light. Exposed beams were then installed and a fluted trim package finished out the overhead space.
Paneling on the walls were covered with ¼’ drywall and painted. Glass shelving was mounted to visually open up the space while providing needed storage. The existing stone floors were polished and the hardwood floors were refinished. A full house generation HVAC system was installed. This system and all of the lighting were set up on an internet access port enabling the homeowners to control the settings while away from home.
Seth Chandlee and Jim Chandlee, related co-owners and partners of Chandlee and Sons Construction, performed this fun remodel project to bring smiles to friends’ faces by giving them a new, inviting environment for the creation of many meals to come.
