Built Right Construction, LLC


Winner of Remodeling Excellence Award. My clients wanted to transform their 1980s family room and kitchen into a visually connected space. Using clean, contemporary lines that showcased their glass art, we created an open floorplan. We added temperature-controlled wine storage, increased vertical kitchen storage, and an updated fireplace feature wall.

We created a floorplan, lighting and cabinet plans, with elevations and details for a “down to studs” remodel. The non-loadbearing wall dividing their formal dining room from the kitchen became shorter to create space for an “end cap” wine cooler with overhead shelves for glasses. By doing so, we increased the sense of space and created an art wall sightline from the dining room. New cabinetry with contemporary surfaces and hardware, used vertical space that grew storage capacity while using a smaller footprint.

We brought the firebox down to floor level, to give comfortable ergonomics and TV placement over the hearth. Villeroy & Boch tile cladding provided visual texture.

A custom feature on which artisans and I worked closely to create, was a stand-alone, bar height, waterfall edge quartz table. We designed to merge with the adjacent countertop and provide a clean façade, hiding the chair legs.

The lighting upgrade included all new downlight LED cans with dimmers and directional lights for art and pendants lights.

A new sectional with chaise, cocktail ottoman, shag rug, chairs, bar stools, and soft furnishings also were added. The end look was a shimmery, quietly welcoming area that is comfortable yet durable. Pops of color in peacock and apple green in paint, fabric, and art wove into the space creating visual richness. A local gallery helped me to find two pieces for the art wall.
