Jared Lewis and this DREAMY kitchen

These clients are high on style and reasonable on budget and look what they pulled off!! When we met them, their little family was increasing in size with a new baby and a toddler in tow. And in the middle of all of this, the wife has decided to start her own law firm. This is what focus, an excellent contractor and quality products will get you. The kitchen in this house was very ordinary to start with — certainly very much like one that we have all lived with at one point or another (as soon as I have “Before” pics I will share them). This new area is so focused on family, fun and flow. Look how easily one can move from room to room, from table to sink to bar area and into the living area. They are going to enjoy this for decades. Jared Lewis worked with Beyond the Box in Santa Cruz for the cabinets and kitchen design

Think of how easy it will be to pull this pantry out and not have to bend down and dig for items WAY in the back. SOOO Practical! It seems like one would be more likely to use everything because things will always be within sight providing inspiration for meals

There's a Made in USA pot filler. Love how the pot matches the tile.

We all work hard to keep things running smoothly around here. Since a very young age, our children have been our cleaning crew. We have never paid anyone else (which may explain some of the dust but they’ve gotten pretty good at it) While we’re helping you, you will often see these guys with their dust cloths in hand.
