At Trinity Renovation, we love to build.  And that’s a pretty handy passion if you’re a contractor.  Why do we love to build?  We’ve thought a lot about this.  It comes down to two reasons:

First, what we build benefits the user.  Whether it be restoring someones home after a flood, building an office for an expanding business, or turning galley kitchen into a masterpiece, we’re honored to help our clients improve or restore their most significant places of work and play.

Second is the satisfaction of turning an idea, need or set of blueprints into a finished product.  There’s no better feeling than standing back at the end of a job and marveling at how nothing became something.

And these are the same reasons why we love kitchenCRATE.  The idea of a 7 day, $15,000 kitchen remodel was a crazy idea, but seeing it come to life is amazing.

The First kitchenBOX (Now kitchenCRATE)

We witnessed the start of kitchenBOX this week.

This home on Collingham Drive in northeast Modesto was built approximately 11 years ago.  The homeowner was ready to move on from the tile counter tops, 6″ backsplash, older appliances, and original cabinets.  That’s where kitchenBOX comes in.  In 7 days, we will make the existing cabinets look new, install custom granite countertops, add a full-height tumbled tile backsplash, and install new appliances, faucet, and sink.

As you can see in the pictures below, Day 1 was a success.  Our team met our goals of protecting the floors, removing the doors and drawers, demolishing the countertops and backsplash, removing the appliances, creating the granite template and installing the dust protection wall.  By 4 PM on Day 1, we were ready for the painting to begin the next day.

Take a look at the before and Day 1 pictures below!
