The kitchen, flanking the entry, sets the tone for the stylish “summer camp” approach to the cabin renovation. To create this casual yet elegant kitchen we designed a custom tile backsplash with Daltile’s keystones. The foxhall green cabinetry, matte black footrail and classic quartzite countertops are the perfect combination for the boy scout chic look Chip envisioned. Dualing 36” commercial cooktops under a custom RangeCraft vent hood make quite the statement while providing the functionality to cook for our army of guests.

The Kitchen Befores
The small, cramped and ugly kitchen was relocated to an equally awkward space in the house: a green carpeted “living” room that was originally planned to be the garage. It just made sense for us to transform the layout of the home to encapsulate more square footage for the kitchen, since that’s where most gatherings seem to happen now-a-days. The relocation also provided us the opportunity to capitalize on the vaulted ceilings and the French doors over looking the lake.
