Detroit, MI: Kitchen Trim Projects
Jim and Stephanie Turner both fell in love with a two-story 1911 Prairie Tudor home nearly 20 years ago. Our project centers in the kitchen. The couple has chosen to install a striking tin ceiling above hand stripped oak cabinets. There are two items of unfinished business they need help with. An unsightly gap remains between the plaster walls and the tin ceiling. Additionally, the trim has been removed around two transoms, one of which contains an air conditioner. Our plan is to solve both of these problems by helping them choose, prep and install a decorative tin cornice around the entire room and by putting back the molding around the transoms and two door jams. Also in the kitchen are two walls whose ends have not been completed. We will study other moldings throughout the house and settle on a similar style that we will face the wall end with. With their highly decorative ceiling now complete, their transoms properly trimmed out, and the wall ends finished, we'll leave Stephanie and Jim with the satisfaction that this kitchen will be a place to create many a finished meal in fine historic style.
