We started another BGB project in Cambridge this week. This is a renovation with scope for a Phase II sometime in the future.

The first step of starting a project is protection. We protect any areas that we will not be working in;  objects, fixtures or appliances that the client would like to save or reuse. We are saving the kitchen cabinets and dishwasher for reuse. The heart pine floors, historic mantel and fireplace are all slated for pick-up by John Isgur at  Nor’east Architectural antiques for repurposing.

The next step is to mark out all the surfaces to be demolished. We mark out on every wall what needs to happen to it, as you can see n the pictures below.  If there are no marks on the walls, it stays the same.

Stack Design Build in RI is the brain behind the exciting new layout of the space. The interesting  design coupled with the clients’ enthusiasm to live in a healthy, efficient home that uses local and repurposed materials is right up our ally and we are thrilled to be working on what promises to be an exciting project.

The Scope:
New Kitchen, Pantry, Master Suite, Kid’s Bath,
Renovation of the entire second floor to remove the attic space and add cathedral ceilings in all the rooms ; an a loft space in the kid’s bedroom

We will be setting up a time-lapse camera to capture the transformation of the space into an open floor plan and new kitchen space; and will come back with more !
