  • The Biese Project with Linton Architects is one of our favorites to date. We transformed a cluttered entry and kitchen into a mudroom and foyer, redesigning the stairs and adding built-in storage and cubbies. Removing walls surrounding the formal dining room really opened up the space, and wine racks and more storage from Wood Done Right between structural columns make the space efficient for serving. The existing sunroom stepped down to a stone floor, so we blew the walls out and put sleepers down to bring the floor back to height, refinishing all of the floors on the first floor. A breakfast room with a bench seat and more cabinet storage shows off the wider cased openings between rooms, leading into the breathtaking kitchen addition. Practically every inch of walls is glass, with Pozzi windows and a folding door unit from Jeld-Wen sweeping the entire view of the corner into the backyard and patio. Custom cabinetry by Wood Done Right nestled under 130 square feet of quartzite countertop space; farm sink; Wolf range with island hood; two refrigerators and two dishwashers; Julia Child would be proud. Bricksmith's Masonry matched the custom brick veneer on the outside, Hansell Painting added the finishing touches inside and out, and the copper roof and gutters by Walker Brown Roofing was the icing on the cake.
