To start the three-bedroom ranch house needed everything! Therefore we reached out to our list of amazing vendors and talented tradespeople. Moreover, they not only made donations. For instance with all the furniture, lighting, rugs, artwork, flooring, etc. Also, all labor and painting were donated. They volunteered their time and expertise to help pull this project together beautifully.
A completely renovated kitchen. In addition to the custom cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. The kitchen was updated with Cambria countertops and Hansgrohe plumbing fixtures.
The home’s layout was good. However, the bathrooms were small and outdated. Therefore we gutted and moved them. For instance, the master bathroom was a half bath. However, now it’s a fabulous bathroom with a walk-in-shower!
Kravet generously donated all the fabrics. As a result, we were able to work with our local workrooms. They donated their skills.
