Bringing a Historic Craftsman Into the 21st Century

A beautiful century-old Craftsman house has been lovingly updated by the homeowners, but the boxy kitchen with counter space spread out into two rooms has the couple at a standstill until licensed contractor James Young steps in to help bring the space into the 21st Century. With his help, the couple knock down walls and create one large space for their kitchen. New craftsman-style cabinets with soapstone counter tops anchor the space, while art tiles, DIY stained glass and massive sliding doors for kitchen storage give it the custom look the homeowners crave. Clever use of salvaged materials turns the new kitchen into a charming area that pays respect to its past while utilizing every modern amenity, all for a budget of $30,000.
