Looking to remodel kitchen, where to get design plans..

rmw_October 1, 2013

Anyone know of good places to turn to. Anyone here good at it? Not sure I trust the 20yr old at Menards or Lowes and not looking to spend $$$ on a super professional.

Here is my current setup (click on pix for larger):




I would like to remove the wall between the kitchen and great room (or as much as I can) and make it open. I think just using the kitchen and dining space together to make one giant kitchen.

Thanks so much!

"I would like to remove the wall between the kitchen and great room "
Your photo shows that it already is, or do you want a flat ceiling.
Is your house a single or 2 story"

debrak2008: will do

There is an extended opening between the dining/great room. I want to remove more of that wall between the kitchen and great room.

My house is a ranch with a partially (most) finished basement. The great room has vaulted ceiling, dining has tray, and kitchen has normal.

You are going to need a structural engineer.
A good, knowledgable draftsman could prepare the plans for you.
Some general contractors have them on staff.
Good fishing.
