Arguably the most important rooms in a home are the kitchen and family room. Families tend to congregate, eat, play, laugh, argue, watch TV and use computers in these rooms. Dining Rooms are used a couple of times a year and Living Rooms almost have no purpose at all.
For this property owner in Bethesda, like the vast majority in the Washington, D.C. metro area, they needed an affordable expansion of the kitchen, family room and breakfast room. This project included a family room addition about 20 feet square that adjoined the kitchen and breakfast room. The family room connects to the kitchen through an open counter-top and two cased openings as you can see in the adjacent photo. The breakfast room is large enough to house a generous table and will include a wall-mounted TV and wireless computer connections.
This project is ready for the finishes. The drywall has been installed and primed, the sub-floor has been screwed and prepped to receive the wood flooring and equally important, the home is clean and safe. A clean project is a safe project. The windows are ready to be trimmed with casing and stool - this project is ready to continue on its speedy schedule. Check our posts in a week or two - I will be sure to include some photos of the completed cabinets and trim.
