Dreambuilder Custom Homes announces completion of kitchen remodel, Dreambuilder Twelve

Dreambuilder Custom Homes is pleased to announce the completion of Dreambuilder Twelve:  a kitchen remodel for the Mankowski family in Jacksonville, FL.

This mid-century ranch’s kitchen had been remodeled before — about 35 years ago.  The cabinets, while stylish in the ’70s, were out-of-date and old.  Additionally, the kitchen suffered from too many doorways, little cabinet space and no pantry.  Appliances were few and barely functional — including an ancient double oven that was a fire hazard.

Dreambuilder worked with Susan Mankowski to design a contempoary kitchen that solved all of these problems.  By eliminating one entrance to the kitchen, we improved traffic flow and had the room to build a new pantry closet.  Larger 42″ upper cabinets and other features further increased storage capacity and versatility.  Widening the doorway into the dining room opened up the space between the two rooms, creating an updated feel common to today’s floorplans.
