A Craftsman Kitchen by Jessica Miller

Our historic home in Sherman Hill was built in 1880 and came equipped with a 5 by 5’ kitchen —teeny tiny. At some point the main kitchen was located outside the home which is now our neighbor’s garage about 20 yards away. The internal “prep” kitchen was virtually left untouched besides some cosmetics for the past 139 years so it was time for a big change.

We removed the built-in hutch, removed the wall, moved the back door over a few inches (every inch counted in this small space), moved plumbing, added can lights, new cabinetry, flooring and appliances. It’s still small but way more functional with the peninsula.

The original kitchen was so small it made it tough to even get before photos but check out what I got below. Shopping list provided below as well. Enjoy :)

TOP 18 in 2018 by Jessica Miller

Well, I think it’s safe to say 2018 was successful! I just counted and recounted (because I didn’t believe my math) the number of stages last year and I came up with 125?! How is this even possible? Last year was 52 and the year before that was 35! Holy moly, that is a 140% increase from last year! I even had 30 staging consultations, 15 flips and 10 interior design clients mixed in. I can’t thank my clients enough- agents, investors, homeowners. corporations and agencies. Thank you for trusting me with your homes, projects and designs. I brought on a full-time assistant, leased a 2,000 sqft warehouse and Sprinter van to make job run as smooth as possible. So far so good :)

Here’s my top 18 stages of 2018. I wish I could share my commercial work with Pella Corportation but it won’t be out til early 2019. Thanks for everything! Can’t wait to see what 2019 brings!

Best,

Jess
