Happy Owner in Reno Mode

March, 2019

After living in her townhouse for 10 years, Kathryn decided it was time to do a room-by-room renovation. She spoke to her sister about the project, and was referred to Amedeo by her sister’s friend.

“Amedeo came out and looked around the townhouse and offered a couple of different ideas,” she says.

“At our first meeting, Kathryn wanted to replace the cabinets in the kitchen,” says Amedeo Barbini of Barbini Design Build. “I explained that if we did that, her kitchen would look the same, except it would have new cabinets. She would spend money but the kitchen still wouldn’t work for today’s lifestyle.”

Amedeo provided two options: one with new kitchen cabinetry as she requested, and a second one that included removing the wall separating the living/dining room and kitchen to create an open main floor.

“I showed the designs to my family and decided open concept was the way to go. I wanted a big island,” Kathryn says.

She gave Amedeo the go-ahead, then moved out to stay with a friend so she wouldn’t have to deal with construction noise and dust. At first she visited the home about once a week, then more often as the job progressed. “The tradespeople were great. We’d chit chat. All the guys were great.”
