One of the homeowner’s request was to raise the ceilings of their 1970’s Wekiva, FL home but the cost to re-truss the roof was just not in their budget. Thinking outside the box, Jonathan McGrath Construction lowered the concrete floor 16” to achieve the goal of the taller ceilings at a substantially reduced cost. Steps were provided for a seamless look.
The design flows very well into the existing structure and it is difficult to tell where the new met the old. All the new elements complement the existing such as utilizing the stacked stone featured in the outside living area on the inside as a beautiful arch showcasing the cooking area. The kitchen was designed to be efficient and functional with everything right at your fingertips. This type of remodel enabled saving much of the structure; only replacing the items necessary. The homeowner was able to incorporate everything to make their kitchen the heartbeat of their home.
