Create a Larger Kitchen and Add a Window
This was one of the most technically complex residential remodeling projects one can possibly do on a single story house.
The Owner wanted a larger kitchen and another window on a wall, which at that time, was the back of the utility room. As you can see below, this utility room housed the air handlers, gas water heater and main electrical service panel at the time.
So the main water service, electrical service, and gas water heater were all relocated. The air conditioning system was partially relocated and modified, to expand the 1964 kitchen.
BEFORE: All the duct work for this home is under the concrete slab, where it was installed originally in 1964; the air handlers were relocated to the attic. They still connect to the duct work, under the concrete slab, but you can’t see the hidden duct work in the back of the new cabinets, which are next to the double wall ovens. Complicated would be an understatement for this project.
