Classic Marin Elegance

This 1923 home presented some great opportunities and some significant challenges. The original floor plan included four rooms.

The owner’s dream, her collaboration with Bill Tomrose and the eventual Rochelle Silberman design. finally gave this owner her dream kitchen. The design called for removal of all the interior walls, creating a single kitchen/family room. For that, we constructed a steel “moment frame”  to guarantee structural stability and carry the weight of the upper floors. We were also dealing with work done to building codes from nearly a century ago. The wiring and plumbing were original and had to be completely removed. After stripping the area back to bare studs, we began the reconstruction.

Our resulting remodel was featured as “Kitchen of the Week” on Houzz. And the clients loved it, too.
