2017 Fall Remodelers Showcase
September 29 – October 1, Noon to 6 pm
Remodel #30 – 16803 Hudson Circle, Lakeville
September is here, and arriving along with the cool weather and back to school routine is the annual Twin Cities Parade of Homes. Our favorite part of the Fall Parade? The Remodelers Showcase weekend, which is when our local remodeling industry shares the best of what we’ve been working on over the spring and summer. For the J. Carsten Remodeling team, that’s this elegant Lakeville kitchen transformation.
Ready to make significant changes, these decisive homeowners were fantastic to work with, they knew what they wanted from the start. Specifically, they were tired of their closed-off 90’s kitchen with its standard oak cabinets. We got down to work; our list included removing a wall separating the kitchen and living room, expanding the center island, and relocating the sink.
Giving the sink a new home turned out to be the greatest challenge of this project. We had to reroute all of its plumbing through the middle of the room, which meant negotiating with the heating system and completed media room located directly under the kitchen. In the end, all of the plumbing was carried out from above. To prevent the floor from flexing under the larger island, we also added 2×10 floor joists for extra reinforcement and support.
We hope you all visit us during the Remodelers Showcase and see this stunning home for yourself! The newly expanded kitchen is a host’s dream come true with its ample prep areas, serving space, and classy dry bar with double wine fridges. Can’t wait until the 29th?
