CLIENT:  J & N
PROJECT LOCATION:  White Plains, NY
PROJECT GOALS:  Enlarge the dark kitchen without "bumping out" (adding on, or building an addition).  Make better or more frequent use of seldom used (once or twice a year!) dining room;  Eliminate the forever long "dead space" hallways;  Create a better flow, better "connection" between the kitchen, the family room.  Take advantage of the view of the beautiful pond and let the sun shine in the dining room located South-East.
PROJECT DESCRIPTION :  Phase one of four (see phase three here) -Complete, or almost complete re-designing of first floor revolving around the kitchen. This is phase one of four phases, each floor being a phase and the exterior being another.
The bathroom was relocated next to the garage to allow for a larger kitchen.  Extensive structural repairs and alterations, complete plumbing & electrical overhaul was also necessary.  Replacement of front entry door, relocation of entry from garage to interior of home,  all new HVAC (new boiler, 2 condensers & 2 air handlers) throughout the entire home, and central vacuum was also part of the scope of work.  A wrap-around (the corner of the dining room) deck has yet to be built.  The only way to really appreciate the difference is by examining the before & after plans (it can give you ideas for your own kitchen...). You can also browse, or "mouse over" most of the pictures above for additional brief descriptions.

CLIENT COMMENTS:  "Our 'Extreme Makeover' was a huge success!
This is what we tell all of our family members and friends when they ask about our recently remodeled first floor.
Sylvain, and the entire Absolute Remodeling team did a terrific job on our project from start to finish. Remodeling the entire first floor of your home, and main living area, can be quite stressful. We can honestly say that everyone at Absolute Remodeling did their very best to make sure that this process was as easy on us as possible. The entire team was conscientious, helpful, and did a terrific job cleaning up at the end of the day.
Sylvain, helped us with all of our creative decisions and was certainly an instrumental part in our new beautiful space. Family, friends and neighbors alike, routinely say our newly designed kitchen/dining room looks like something out of the kitchen and home magazines!
The best indicator of how well a project went is whether or not you would do it again with the same people. When we're asked, "Would you do it again?" -- We answer, "We already have!", as we've just begun phase 2 -- a full basement remodel!
Thanks Sylvain and the entire Absolute Remodeling team! We look forward to working with you on future projects."  -N & J, July 04.

"She [prospect customer] wanted to know if the project was on time and on budget. I told her, for both [projects], it went over and that some of it was our fault and some I thought was your fault. She asked if we would use you again and I said yes and that we would probably redo our master suite in the next 18 months. I told her that we were happy with the quality of the work, and that when people came over they were very impressed."  -N, 01.23.06.
