Strange Kitchen

Postby Joe Dusel » Thu, Jan 04 2007, 9:41PM

Here are a few renderings for a kitchen that I'm supposed to sign the contract for tomorrow. This is what happens when you have a client in his 20s with a California remodel. The way the California remodel works if you leave a few of the existing walls in a little clunker of a house you don't have to pay the extreme fees that you would for a new house. So, unfortunately, the walls that were left were the ones picked to put the kitchen into with lots of wierd little alcoves. I wanted to re-design the designers work, but this is the way the client wants it. I figure that after he gets married I might get to do the kitchen a second time for him.

Note the sink area. There will be a 55\" stretch of granite to the windows.

Joe,
I think that the kitchen got hidden in the alcoves you spoke about! :)

Nice loophole, huh? I've worked on quite a few 2 & 3 flats in the Lincoln Park area of Chicago where similar regulations exist. As long as you leave one of the 4 exterior walls alone, you can basically rebuild an entire building as a 'remodel'. The basic advantage being that the building doesn't entirely have to be up to current code, if one considers that an advantage.

Sorry guys. The night I tried to post this I got a bunch of Javascript errors, so I figured the forum was down. Now I see that the files did not go through and I got three copies of the same message with no way to delete them...

I will try to post the files.

I used to have THAT problem before I had my cataracts removed but now I sometimes see things that I wish I didn't (things in "public", not your design Joe) :wink:
