The Squire’s Dream Kitchen: An old Lowe’s kit house in the country gets a makeover and lands in Washingtonian.

One of our projects, the Phelps / Cregan Residence, was recently featured in Washingtonian magazine. The project was included in the magazine’s “Dream Kitchens” feature. This project involved the transformation of a Lowe’s kit ranch house (the “Squire” model), which was built by the owner in the 1970’s. The renovation converted the house into an open, light-filled loft space.
