Dreambuilder Custom Homes is pleased to announce the completion of Dreambuilder Twelve: a kitchen remodel for the Mankowski family in Jacksonville, FL.
This mid-century ranch’s kitchen had been remodeled before — about 35 years ago. The cabinets, while stylish in the ’70s, were out-of-date and old. Additionally, the kitchen suffered from too many doorways, little cabinet space and no pantry. Appliances were few and barely functional — including an ancient double oven that was a fire hazard.
Dreambuilder worked with Susan Mankowski to design a contempoary kitchen that solved all of these problems. By eliminating one entrance to the kitchen, we improved traffic flow and had the room to build a new pantry closet. Larger 42″ upper cabinets and other features further increased storage capacity and versatility.
