Nestled in the charming mountain town of Jonas Ridge resided a quaint mountain cabin. After years of loving its rustic mountain charm, it was time to improve many aspects of the home to make it more spacious and functional for their family. This 1950s cabin was in need of aesthetic and building code updates including an expansion and remodel of their kitchen. This project included a detailed interior renovation that correlated to the cabin’s original integrity. The homeowners were grateful to have a vacation home with a larger footprint and storage space so that many people could visit comfortably.

The original kitchen’s floor plan made it difficult to prep and cook meals. The team successfully designed an open floor plan that prioritized space for cooking, storage, and entertaining. The updated kitchen now includes a large kitchen island providing room for multiple chefs and showcases custom cabinetry, honed soapstone countertops, and new appliances. The living room was expanded and received all new windows, doors, and flooring. The space now feels open and inviting thanks to the abundance of windows and natural materials.
