KITCHENS

 

At Yellow Dog Contracting we view kitchens as the center piece and social center of your biggest investment. There are endless possibilities in remodeling a kitchen, and we are happy to guide you from design to finish.

 

As a client you will consult with our president, electrical, and plumbing contractors to create a kitchen that will be much more than the place you prepare meals. Whether adding a tile back splash, new counter tops, or a complete remodel we bring our craftsmanship and eye for detail to every project.

 

 

From tiling and cabinet installation to finish carpentry and lighting layout we rely on our experience and professional knowledge to transform your kitchen from ordinary to extraordinary.

 

One of the keys to a successful kitchen remodel is good contractor client communication. By keeping most aspects of the work in-house,

Yellow Dog Contracting is able to quickly adjust to meet client requests for changes in layout and materials.

 

 

Many contracting companies employ seperate sub-contractors for every aspect of a kitchen remodel. Because we do the building as well as the managing we are able to keep our projects streamlined and affordable.

 

We enjoy working with our clients, and pride ourselves on being transparent and accessible.

 

 

 

This hand pounded copper farm sink is one of many unique features in the kitchen. In addition to functionality, it also provides a stunning accent against the green soapstone counter tops and custom stone backsplash.

 

 

When the space was gutted we exposed the original stone foundation in the back of the pantry space and laundry room. We left the foundation exposed in the laundry room and continued the theme in the kitchen by matching the stone and incorporating it into this timeless back splash.

 

The photo on the right shows a kitchen remodel that involved new counters and flooring, but reused the existing kitchen cabinets. At Yellow Dog Contracting we understand not everyone is looking for a total remodel, and we are always happy to consult on what sort of upgrade options may be available.

 

 

 

 


 

The crown moulding in this kitchen is very unique. The cabinets did not look right with the larger crown moulding used in the rest of the house. A smaller crown moulding was used on the cabinets and then coped into the larger crown moulding as seen in the rest of the house.

 

 

After the floors were leveled and refinished, these custom cabinets were installed. Granite countertops were fitted, and white subway tile was added as a backsplsh. Custom base and crown moulding give the space a clean, finished look.

 

 

This 1700's farmhouse had a small kitchen with plaster and lathe ceilings, formica counter tops, and 30 year old wood cabinets. The entire space was gutted down to the framing. After a beam weight calculation was formulated by a local architect, the load bearing wall between the pantry and kitchen was removed, the beam was strapped with half inch thick steel plates, and salvaged barn beams were used for both structural support and a unique asthetic.

 

 

This photo articulates the client's desire to create an open and inviting kitchen space. By removing the load bearing wall the kitchen nearly doubled in size. Taking down the plaster and lathe ceiling allowed us to expose the original joists as well as providing clean lines to lengthen the space. Copper track lighting, a matching copper hanging light, and under-cabinet lights finish the space.
