My mom grew up in that area. My aunt attended GUPPIS. (Is that correct?!)

Your home is lovely.
I have to ask, if these are the afters, what were the befores like?

I love to go home to MI and take a drive. The older neighborhoods are beautiful. My grandma was in Mt. Clemens since the 30s, and my family there since 1864. Lots of cool architecture!

Thanks for sharing.

RE: My new Kitchen

Thank you!

I'll have to find some before pictures, I have a TON of videos , but no pictures.

The Kitchen had white ceramic tile, dark brown cabinets and white round knobs. The kitchen was not open at ALL!

I love driving down Lakeshore! Do you? My house is about 7 minute drive to the GPYC and about 1 minute from the Lake.

You're welcome!

RE: My new Kitchen

Wow, 10 bathrooms! You must have a large family! Your kitchen is beautiful, as is, obviously, the rest of the house. Personally, I like to hear about the kitchen details - cabinet maker, countertop choices, etc.., I didn't see any of that. I am curious if you like having 4 DW drawers - does that work better than 2 regular sized ones?

RE: My new Kitchen

Well, originally we had 6 people ( Me, my wife, and our children , but they're all grown and out of college! ):
We've thought about moving, but we love this house too much! We just bought a winter home in Telluride Colorado, and we will be renovating the kitchen! I will be posting before-during-after photos.

I will look through my files later tomorrow!

About the DW's.
We have to kitchen areas, the main area with micro, ovens, rangetop, dual dw, and the main Subzero. The other area has two Dw's, Wc, Ice maker, and the veggie sink.
The main reason for having four dw's is, if we have a party, we can have pots and pans in one unit of two and crystal in the other unit of two.

RE: My new Kitchen

Love this! Stunning! And I have the same dining room set :)

RE: My new Kitchen
