Laurelhurst Vintage Classic

The young family wanted their first home to reflect their values and family-focused lifestyle, celebrate the home’s original 1920s era character, use efficient space-planning to enhance functionality, and install sustainable finishes to improve livability. Model Remodel worked closely with the project’s outstanding architect, Carol Sundstrom, AIA, Rom Architecture Studio, and enthusiastic clients to deliver this wish list, creating a well-organized kitchen and welcoming indoor-outdoor dining space.

French doors invite light into the kitchen on grey winter days and beckon guests outside on warm summer evenings. The kitchen design encourages planning, preparing and enjoying lively family meals. The Shaker-style custom millwork, with elegant bronze pulls below and period-appropriate crystal knobs above, provides the personality and vibe this family was looking for in their classic craftsman-style home. The warm and inviting cabinets are complemented by a herringbone-patterned, marble-tile backsplash. To preserve the beauty of the tile, electrical outlets are tucked under the cabinets. Pullout pantries keep the kitchen tidy and organized. A vintage light fixture adds to the authentic character of the space.

 “This was our first remodel project, and Model Remodel really understood how huge the investment was for us in terms of time, money and emotion….They took care of issues that came up, some of which were outside the original scope”.  – Homeowner’s Testimonial, November 2012

The vision and work was six months in the making; Model Remodel’s craftsmanship will serve the family for years to come.
