  • Mudrooms/laundry rooms are also designed with lots of storage and prep space.  This is done through a large closet and cabinetry over the washer/dryer.
  • Kitchens are laid out to create efficient flow throughout the workspace.  A large walk-in pantry is included to provide storage as well as great organization with in the kitchen.  Our standard upper cabinet height is 42” complete with a built-in light valance to not only provide extra storage but to give the home a look and feel of grandeur.  Large islands with eating bars are also incorporated into the kitchen space to provide extra dinning and working space.  
  • Great rooms are designed to be an open concept with the kitchen/nook area to allow families to have quality time together and provide great space for entertaining.
