Tile detail for full kitchen/great room remodel in Walnut Creek.

This single family 4 bedroom/2 bath suburban rancher had never been updated; the kitchen and family room were dark and compartmentalized.

To transform the kitchen/great room, we removed a portion of the existing roof. When we rebuilt it, we turned the ridge 90 degrees, creating a light-filled open beam ceiling and gable, with a wall of unobstructed glass to the backyard. We installed a high-efficiency HVAC system, hardwood flooring, tile backsplash, and tubular skylights. Replacing the majority of the electrical system, plumbing, appliances, fixtures, finishes, cabinetry, countertops, and recessed and pendant lighting.

We performed a Home Energy Upgrade to ensure the home would be comfortable season to season and save energy. During construction, we air sealed the walls and ceiling as well as injecting cellulose insulation to achieve maximum performance. Accomplishing a continuous and complete building envelope. As part of the upgrade, we also installed an efficient tankless water heater with a recirculating pump.
