A moderate kitchen remodel, the basic kitchen existed but we made a few changes, including demolition of a low/false ceiling and installing the tin ceiling with new lighting. We also replaced the two windows over the sink and added a third over the stove where wall cabinets had been.

Lastly, we installed the heart pine flooring...oh,and the beadboard wainscot is new too.
