Isn't it about time to show more custom ALAN?

Wow! Who wouldn't want this kitchen? Is this a magazine photo? No~

This is Stacey's newly remodeled kitchen, complete with Alan custom cabinets~
OK, 'before' pictures are a must, to really appreciate the changes. It was a nice kitchen - but how fun to see the inspiring changes Stacey made. Not new to home improvement projects - in the past four years, they've tiled a bathroom, built a deck and moved a door.

Stacey's home just turned 100. Built in 1911, it's a four-square Craftsman - complete with wonderful, wide woodwork and trim. The new kitchen was a major undertaking - beginning with totally gutting the existing room. We can appreciate their hard work!
Stacey: "I love design shows! My favorites are Nate Berkus and Design Star"

Stacey's kitchen transformation would hit high on a list of before and afters!

Alan built about 11 pieces for her new kitchen, which began as seven pages of drawings.

Look at that sink - found in a salvage shop, it was in the 'before' kitchen. A definite keeper, don't you think? Her new countertops are honed granite in Absolute Black. If you've noted the vintage lighting in the after photos, Stacey said there are now two chandeliers, and ceiling fixtures to the right and left of the sink.

Signature Alan style~

Stacey: "There is so much I like about the kitchen now.....the repurposed windows on the cabinets.....I also like the new layout, it is so easy, casual and pleasant.....It was a pleasure working with Alan, he really had great ideas and design input. Many of the details were his idea and they made the cabinets extraordinary (trim, windows......beadboard, etc.)"

Thank you, Stacey, for sharing your kitchen remodel project with us. I know there will be requests for more 'after' photos! ~TERESA
