>Pacheco Valley Residence

>The Kitchen

The owner of this Pacheco Valley condo loves to cook but was cramped in the original design. We maximized the space by adding a tray ceiling, extending both upper and lower cabinets, and increased storage and counter space by grouping the pantry and refrigerator on one wall. The cabinets were  refinished to a frame-less style paint grade and new counter, tile, and appliances  were added for an updated look.

New double pane windows that will help save energy
Re-using the existing cabinetry boxes and donating the old doors to our cabinet builder for reuse

Fireplace refinishing and powder room update coming soon…
The Master Bedroom
The ceiling was vaulted in the master bedroom taking advantage of unused attack space and allowing for a skylight to be added over the owners new-to-you Eames Lounge. Skylight: $300., lightly used Eames original: $2000., creating the owner’s favorite spot to star gaze: Priceless.
