Trimming The House

The trim is going up and there is a lot of trim in this house!  Not only is it along the bottom of the walls, but around the door openings and on the ceiling as well.  With the many unique features about the trim, it will be sure to bring a lot character and charm with it throughout the house.

Custom Made Details

Our carpenters custom built many elements within this remodel.  One interesting feature is the wainscot trim detail in the threshold between the kitchen and family room.  Since the opening between the two rooms is so thick, Rachael decided to add more interest by adding a wainscot trim.  Tim, one of our carpenters, custom cut this trim to match the kitchen cabinet framing exactly, tying the whole house together and giving it a custom design feel - this is an advantage of a design build team approach!

Designed Interiors

The door openings are all trimmed and looking great!  The thresholds between rooms are cased in a Colonial style casing and completed with a base that is larger than average to balance out the large opening. Rob and Ryan built the coffered ceiling that Rachael designed and we are so excited to see it in the finished space.  The coffered ceiling in the family room adds a beautiful element to the room and keeps with the existing traditional character of the house.  To add more custom details to the house, Rachael designed the coffered ceiling to transition into a custom built-in surrounding the fireplace - you’re not going to see that anywhere else!   The next custom built-in detail are custom made concealed doors that will hide the TV.


Excited to see it come together...
