A couple quick snapshots of a nearly complete bath remodel in Boulder. What we love about this bathroom: Mixture of interesting materials - limestone, porcelain, marble, quartz...the lighting...free standing tub and floor mount tub filler, and mostly that shower!

This post encompasses weeks 7-9 of the remodel process for this particular project. To recap: we decided to completely relocate the kitchen from one part of the house to another. We moved it from a smaller space that was directly located next to the garage down to a much larger space - which was previously a living room. In addition to this - we've refinished all the flooring, redone the fireplace, and are also updating a small powder room.
Last week was really exciting! Our countertops and appliances were installed in the same day. It was quite a transformation and we certainly have to tip our cap to the general contractor who orchestrated all the trades working in one space together.
Below are some photos of custom 2" thick black walnut countertops that we had made locally here in Denver. These pieces are truly a work of art. Picture of the installation is down near the bottom of this post...
Our final post following this project will most likely not happen for a few weeks. Our general contractor is taking a much needed vacation and will be back in two weeks after a trip to Australia to finish up the last few details of this project.
It's been a while since our last update on our kitchen remodel in Boulder. This post will summarize the past few weeks worth of progress.
We delivered cabinets about three weeks ago...
The general contractor fell a few days behind schedule because the drywallers were not able to get started on schedule. However, he's been hard at work getting everything ready for our countertop template, which is happening tomorrow...
The floors were sanded down last week. The final coats of floor finishing will take place after the appliances have been installed. Although it looks a long way from completion we are just a few short weeks away from being done. The countertops will be installed in two weeks and we will have the appliances and plumbing hooked up shortly thereafter. I'll keep you posted...
We are very excited to be entering the final design phase of a fantastic project in Boulder. This project will be quite extensive in scope, as we are moving the kitchen to a completely separate room in the home. This transformation is going to give the homeowners a phenomal dining room in the space previously occupied by the old kitchen, and allow for a much larger new kitchen in a previously under utilized space. Below is a rendering of the new kitchen.
So you'll notice right off the bat that these are not the highest quality photographs. That's because I took them myself with my phone camera. So please forgive the quality! I posted a few pics earlier this fall of this kitchen in various stages of installation, so hopefully this will tie it all together and you'll get an idea of what the space turned out like.
The defining feature of the kitchen is definitely the sink wall facing out onto the back yard. We were unable to remove a soffit due to structural beams in the ceiling, so instead, we tiled the whole wall with herringbone mosaic carrara marble and the installed 3" thick floating shelves with LED puck lights.
Another feature in this kitchen that is a bit unusual is the use of reclaimed Wyoming dairy barn wood for accent pieces on the back of the island and peninsula. The gray tones work really well with the carrara marble and Caesarstone countertops. I also really pushed for the waterfall edges on the ends of the island, and I am so glad the homeowners decided to go for it.
The floating shelves are 3" thick and have a small detail on the top and bottom edge. I used 2-1/4" LED puck lights (3 on each side) as undercabinet lighting. The pucks are aesthetically pleasing and provide for valuable light on the countertop surface, which is Frosty Carrina, by Caesarstone.

This transitional white kitchen is shaping up to be a proper space. My clients have been incredibly great to work with, so I am excited about the fact that they will be using this kitchen in a few short weeks.
We had a solid concept in the initial planning stages & I was very happy with the way things were drawn up....However, I think that now that the finishing items are being delivered and being installed I'm even more happy about the way it will turn out. White cabinetry, white Caesarstone countertops and herringbone carrara are going to make this kitchen pop.
Here are a few progress photos...and I'm happy to say AHEAD of schedule!
One thing that will really give this space a truly unique feel is the incorporation of some reclaimed barn wood that I found at Front Range Timber in Denver. Love those guys. They go to Wyoming and tear down old dairy farms, then repurpose the planks for projects such as ours...
Here are a few pics of tile that we will be using in the space.
There will be a lot of work happening in the next two weeks in this space that will dramatically transform it. I'll keep you posted!
