Vermont Country Kitchen

For the last year and a half the Equinox Construction crew has been building this traditional country house with an attached timber frame barn/great room. I came and went from this project from the beginning, jumping between a few other jobs. I was back in the house a few weeks ago to tile the kitchen backsplash and clicked some pictures of the finished kitchen on my way out. Enjoy!

The original space included inexpensive sliding windows, a non functioning unvented gas stove, and was trimmed entirely in dark stained cedar. The room was not insulated properly for winter use and often too stuffy for summer use.
