Love the view from here with an open-floor concept from Shane McLendon Builder LLC.
Want to make the most of your square footage? Try tearing out a few walls! If images of wrecking balls come to mind (minus Miley Cyrus, of course), have no fear; we make sure your home is as structurally sound as it is beautiful. The galleries below are two examples of how we can turn your cramped, dated space into a light and airy masterpiece.
If you have any questions regarding these projects or would like to schedule a consultation, please call Shane or submit a service request from our Contact Us menu item above.

The before kitchen houses a small, cramped, and somewhat dated u-shaped kitchen with a storage peninsula.

This is a before view of the living room/den area. Directly on the other side of this wall is the kitchen wall where the sink was located. To the right of this wall is the entrance to the formal dining area, and to the left is the breakfast nook.
The old kitchen is gutted, and the walls start coming down.
The drywall from the previous kitchen comes down, and the electrical and plumbing are reconfigured into the new kitchen design.
Temporary supports were built, while the remaining kitchen load-bearing walls came down. A steel beam will then be installed to support the second story of this home.
A view of the temporary supports from inside the new kitchen area, facing the previous location of the formal dining area.
Steel beam goes up! Support braces come down.

After drywall is installed, the kitchen is ready for new cabinets. Here, Randy builds the new ones, piece by piece.
The cabinet shelves and the island go in, ready for their fronts and new countertops.
Additional view of the island after the cabinet fronts were installed.
This is the back wall of the old kitchen where the previous stove/oven and microwave sat between limited storage. The cabinet fronts and drawers have been installed and are ready for paint.
This is the newly created bar/desk area where the old dining room sat before. The shelving is built, ready for the doors.

Now, the entire area is painted. The walls become a continuous color to tie the spaces together, and the cabinets are painted to match.
The new granite countertops are installed on the new u-shaped kitchen island.
The new stainless-steel apron front farmhouse sink is installed, and the built-in shelving get a fresh coat of paint.
