Plans become Reality

Remodeling can seem like such a daunting endeavor. When we see all of the planning take shape into reality, the result is worth the wait. Here you can see the progress of this Dallas kitchen remodel. We are removing part of the dividing wall to create a wonderful entertainment space. The wall turned out to be a structural part of the home, so an architect was consulted to engineer a 12' support beam. Next, we will be adding Eco-Chic recycled glass and concrete countertops, & hand-scraped hardwood floors. Check back soon to see more progress!
