Historic Irvington Kitchen Remodel

2017 | Portland, Oregon

For this kitchen and bathroom remodel, our goal was to maintain the historic integrity of the home by providing a traditional design, while also fulfilling the homeowner’s need for a more open and spacious environment. We gutted the entire kitchen and bathroom and removed an interior wall that bisected the kitchen. This provided more flow and connection between the living spaces. The open design and layout of the kitchen cabinets provided a more expansive feel in the kitchen where the whole family could gather without overcrowding. In addition to the kitchen remodel, we replaced the electrical service, redid most of the plumbing, and rerouted the furnace ducts for better efficiency. In the bathroom, we installed a historically accurate sink, vanity, and tile. We refinished the hardwood floors throughout the home as well as rebuilt the front porch staircase, and updated the backdoor and window configuration to reflect the era of the home.

“From the onset to the finish of our kitchen and bath remodel project, the foreman, carpenter, and various tradespeople (plumbers, electricians, floor installers, painters, cabinet maker and installers to name a few), were knowledgeable, professional, creative, and great to work with. Kraft’s ability to grapple with a 100+ year old home was impressive and required a depth of knowledge that run-of-the-mill folks don’t have.”
