Check out this awesome kitchen sent in by Garrett in Columbia Heights. The extra beauty of this one was that Garrett was able to do the work himself! I’d say he did a damn good job. What do you think?

Garrett writes:”Details: The space was a nasty large bathroom addition when we bought the house and the exterior walls were made of load bearing brick. We tore off the brick and rebuilt the addition out of wood. The kitchen’s got semi concealed Lutron QED electric roller shades for all of the windows, all Bosch appliances except for the Jenn-Air French door fridge, maple cabinets from Brookhaven, basalt stone countertops, floating cork floor with radiant hydronic heat below, pop-up mixer cabinet, pneumatic sink top disposal switch, low voltage lighting, speakers hooked into sound system, Eagle windows & doors, & cell phone charging station, etc… The paint is “Reflecting Pool” by Behr. In this phase of the renovation we also added a powder room and a spiral stair to a new roof deck above the kitchen.

Cost: It’s hard to quantify the cost since we did 95% of the work ourselves, but the street value for a good GC to do the job was probably $150,000. We didn’t spend nearly that much.”
