… our busy designer/craftsman

Our designer/craftsman (aka son) has been super busy with a big job. Designing, tearing down and rebuilding a kitchen in Portland (swyftdesignworks.com).

He has moved windows, put doors in new places, installed arches, and made all the cabinets, shelves etc. etc…. Not your basic kitchen remodel.

Looking good! Almost done.

Meanwhile, back in Astoria, our little Victorian is waiting patiently for his return. It too will get a new kitchen!

Presently … our old kitchen is half torn up. Part of it had to be moved to the dining room area :). Still functional but awkward.

How to create a Victorian bathroom in a house that never had one…

Our designer decided to go with the classic, small black and white floor tile and white “subway” tile walls. Bathroom design and fixtures are comfortably modern.

Remember our upstairs floor plan? One old bedroom was turned into a LARGE bathroom by a previous owner. The new design is for two smaller (although good size) bathrooms including a master bath with a large shower…

Tiling in process! Looking good.
