We love a good challenge here at kitchenBOX.
And wow, do we have a challenge with today’s project start!
This huge kitchen in East Modesto features the most significant scope of work to date: the base kitchen box, plus LED can lighting, pendent lighting, high-end granite tops, glass tile backsplash, cabinet addition, cabinet modifications, LED undercabinet lighitng, fireplace tile installation and more.
We’re getting tired just writing about it!
Why the Homeowner Chose kitchenBOX
When we received the initial call from the Copper Bridge Court homeowner it was for a custom remodel. After chatting for a few minutes and then visiting the project, we realized that despite the significant scope of work, this project still fell well within the kitchenBOX capabilities.
The homeowners were very excited to hear about our exceptionally quick turnaround (most similar remodels take 6-8 weeks), and our competitive price point. These features, combined with our ability to to customize the kitchen to the homeowner’s needs, made kitchenBOX the clear-cut answer to their remodeling quandary.
The Current Kitchen Specifications
- Countertop and Backsplash: White 6″ square tile with tan grout.
- Cabinet Finish: Clear-coat over natural white-washed wood.
- Cabinet Hardware: None
- Sink: White cast-iron.
- Faucet: Standard chrome, low-rise.
- Lighting: Track lighting and small light boxes.
In addition to the base kitchenBOX elements, this homeowner is adding LED can lights, LED undercabinet lighting, fireplace tile, a cabinet extension at the island, cabinet modifications in preparation for a wine refrigerator, new upper cabinets over the bar, new shelving at the bookshelf, rough-in electrical and cable for a new wall-mount TV and pendant lighting over the island.
The kitchenBOX Project Scope
The kitchenBOX team began the transformation on Monday, September 9th, 2013. On day 1 the kitchenBOX team will set the kitchenBOX, install plastic walls for dust/fume protection, removed and set-aside the existing appliances, demolished the countertops and backsplash, repair the counter sub-top, removed the doors and drawers for off-site refinishing, template for the new granite tops and prepare the remaining cabinet boxes for refinishing. During the following few weeks (the extensive add-ons are adding quite a few days to this project), the kitchenBOX crew will:
- Refinish the cabinets, doors and drawers with a Chestnut stain.
- Fabricate and install MSI Mascarello granite countertops with a bullnose edge.
- Supply and install Emser’s Cream 3″ x 6″ glass tiles. This will all be grouted using Laticrete Almond grout.
- Install a new single bowl Kohler Bakersfield under-mount sink in Biscuit.
- Install a new Kohler Simplice faucet and soap dispenser with a vibrant stainless finish.
- Install a new Kohler Northland bar sink in biscuit and a new Kohler Simplice bar faucet with a vibrant stainless finish.
- Remove original track lighting and replace with 5″ LED can lights and pendant lighting.
- Supply and install new pulls with matching cabinet hinges.
- Supply and install new light switches and electrical outlets.
- Install new appliances.
- Add additional cabinetry at the island and bar.
- Extend the fireplace tile up to the ceiling.
