Cottage-Style Kitchen

It was not their first fixer-upper, but it soon became their most ambitious. Determined to improve the windows, insulation, and sight lines, they ended up commandeering a whole-house gut job that left them with a ravaged skeleton of studs and joists. What remained of the interior stood open to the elements. Wouldn't it have been easier to build from scratch? "I've never once considered tearing down a house," Bobby declares.

Shown: Cottage-style elements, like beadboard cabinet doors, butcher-block countertops, and a pine ceiling coexist in the kitchen.
