Main-Level Overhaul Remodel

Main-Level Overhaul Remodel

We completely gutted and reimagined the kitchen and laundry spaces for this main-level overhaul remodel on James Island. The kitchen remodel included reusing space from the garage to frame a new laundry room and tearing out the ceiling to create a vaulted space. We also saved costs by reusing about half of the kitchen cabinetry.


In the front of the house, we removed the ceiling and some walls in the old dining room to create a false vault, adding more ceiling height. The beam in the opening was wrapped in circle-sawn reclaimed lumber from Encore Reclaimed Lumber. The floors throughout were sanded and refinished with a special water-based mixture. The front dining room now features a beautiful wainscot, and Beers Millwork supplied stunning French doors for the office.


In the kitchen, we installed Calacatta Silver countertops with a waterfall edge, and the cabinetry, painted BM Natural Cream, features a classic shaker door design. The backsplash showcases Cloe 5×5 ceramic tiles in white from Bedrosians, adding a timeless touch. We reused about half of the appliances, including the fridge, oven, microwave, and wine fridge.


The new laundry room includes massive built-ins designed in-house, a raised platform for the washer and dryer built with ¾” plywood for ergonomic convenience, and a hamper pull-out. The cabinetry, custom-colored to match the blue tones of the MSI NTAM8X8 floor tiles, complements the Cloe 5×5 ceramic backsplash tiles from Bedrosians.


We replaced the front door with one from Southern Lumber, keying in the brick around it to match the existing structure. The project also included installing Emtek and Delta door hardware, including Emtek door stops. The fireplace surround was stripped down and limewashed, and the fireplace insert was removed while retaining the existing mantle.


This remodel showcases our ability to transform and modernize spaces while preserving the character of the home, combining practicality with aesthetic appeal for a stunning result.
