Historic Indian Village House

Subject: Historic House in Indian Village

Challenge: The client requested remodeling of the kitchen, breakfast room and laundry area in their historic Indian Village, Detroit, Michigan house. An interior window and door of the 100-year-old plus home needed to be removed to open up the kitchen to the breakfast area. The entire kitchen, breakfast room and laundry room area walls needed to be removed down to the studs to replace the ceilings and walls. To replace the old flooring, a new floor needed to be installed over the old.

Solution: The current ceilings, walls and flooring were removed and the studs were exposed. New walls, flooring, ceilings and custom cabinets were installed. Included below are the before and after photos.
