No two home remodeling projects are the same. Jobs differ based on the desires of the homeowners, the age and style of the house, the area being worked on, and many more factors.
Remodeling contractors must be on their toes when taking on any project, no matter how large or small.
That certainly was the case with this recent kitchen remodeling project at a gorgeous 1920s farmhouse in Lynden.
The beautiful home, which had been standing in north Whatcom County for a century, included numerous lovely historic features that the homeowner wanted kept as part of the remodel. After visiting the home, Hudson Remodeling’s design/build experts set to work envisioning how those classic elements could be incorporated into the updated kitchen.
The homeowners also had a few other ideas for customization, including a special media/message cabinet and a set of floating shelves made from an old maple tree on the property.
Here are just a few of the remodeling customizations Hudson’s custom carpentry crews were able to include in this kitchen renovation job:
- Rustic tile backsplash in a brick pattern that complements the existing brick alcove behind the fireplace
- 100-plus-year-old butcher block incorporated into the kitchen island at a height that makes it more useable
- Live-edge maple shelves and breakfast nook table made from a tree harvested on the property, finished by the homeowner’s son and installed by Hudson Remodeling
- Shallow cabinet adjacent to the refrigerator that includes a charging station for phones and a message/mail center behind closed doors
- Upper cabinet made deeper to fit microwave oven
- Herringbone-patterned backsplash behind range uses tile that looks like weathered barnwood evocative of an existing barn on the property
Custom remodeling touches like there are among things we love about being in this line of work. Not only do we get to practice our fine design and carpentry skills, but we get to pay homage to the history of Whatcom County while making homeowners’ dreams come true.
This classic farmhouse is no exception; it was an honor to work on this project.
