A Good Kitchen, A Great Common Area
The team mapped out a new layout and finishes for the now-enlarged kitchen, with an inventive, crowd-friendly L-shaped island, a marble-tile backsplash, stainless-steel appliances, and Borzelleca's walnut-front cabinets and soapstone counters. Workman, who has his own mill shop, built an arched opening to the kitchen with period-style trim, echoing the arch he replicated in the front foyer. He also rebuilt the back wall, with windows framing a view of the Blue Ridge Mountains from the eating nook. They line up over that painted heirloom cabinet as if the whole setup had always been there.
