It takes a great customer to get a great kitchen to remodel. The owners of this 7th-floor condominium were some of the best. There were several challenges on this job, from how to get cabinets to the 7th floor to working within the confines of a cement building with a “historical board” and a condominium association, but the building itself was by far the greatest challenge. I was only doing cabinets and countertops on this job. The general contractor, The Art of Homes, had a much harder job. All wiring ran through concrete that could not be cut without proper sign-offs by each neighbor.
On my scope, it is rare to have a building with as many issues like this one. I thank my lucky stars that I had owners who knew the difficulties of living in a 1920’s building and kept a great attitude throughout the entire project.
