Parade of Homes
Entry took second place for kitchen design. This home is located in Windsor Colorado
and was used by the builder, Construction on Site as a model home. A very successful
Located in the Highland Meadows subdivision, the sod freshly laid, a flag pole to
direct the lookie-lous, and workmen touching-up, this home was used as a sales
office situated in the garage.
The orginal design had the cook-top located where the oven is. With a sloped
celling it wouldn't have given the hood any volume and it was decide to flip sides
to create this look.
In this head-on you can see why it was important to move the cook-top and
hood to this wall. Also look at a major design element in the uppers,
arched glass doors. The arched doors are throughout the kitchen and hutch.
The butler pantry leads directly to the dining room and equiped to make any
concoction with its own microwave, wine cooler, wet-bar, and espresso machine.
With the butler pantry to the left and looking straight at
the oven, you can see again how arches are a theme. The island forms
the outer perimeter of kitchen. Posts that mimic those used on
the hood and hutch support the granite top.
Prep area located on the island. By staggering the island wall height
and running the granite over the wall at this end it created a larger
work service. The dishwasher, far right, is pushed to the
far end of the cabinet run so that the door of the dishwasher won't fall at
your legs while working at the sink.
Breakfast nook with hutch, the final element of the kitchen area. This ties in all
the masculine, heavy features of the home together. This house was meant to appeal
to all those who imagine living in the mountains but find themselves
high plains difters.
Living room adjacent to the kitchen has as the centerpiece a fireplace
and to the right a entertainment center that could be used for
a 42" television.
Master bath has a his and her sink mirroring each other and between a large
whirlpool tub. The open base below the sink was made to use as a display area
and the plumbing covered with a removable panel.
