Drew’s Renovation

With a budget of $40,000, Drew’s plan to completely gut his dark grotto of a kitchen is ambitious and exciting.

Drew’s Kitchen, Before

While the main living area and kitchen were essentially open concept, one might be left thinking, “Open to what?” With stone and wood paneling as far as the eye can see, Drew was determined to take advantage of the light and view from the adjoining patio and bring the space into the 21st Century.
