Bigger Isn’t Always Better - Part 2!

Posted by Courtney on Apr 28, 2015 7:23:52 AM

Recently, we introduced you to a first floor remodeling project we’re working on with a couple in Pleasant Hill. When we left off, we had discussed what these clients liked and didn’t like about the multiple options we’d designed.

Bigger Isn't Always Better: Making Smart Use of the Space You Have

Posted by Courtney on Apr 14, 2015 9:34:00 AM

Recently, we started working with a couple located in Pleasant Hill who came to Kaufman Construction wanting to add on to their 1524 square foot (main level) ranch built in 2000. The house features three bedrooms upstairs and a finished basement with a fourth non-conforming bedroom. The clients felt they needed additional space and improved traffic flow throughout their main floor, but were also budget-conscious.

All About That Brass

Posted by Courtney on Jan 21, 2015 4:40:40 PM

For a while now, brass has been back in homes in a big way. It started with touches here and there - a pendant light, a vase, or a photo frame to add a little warmth and glam - but is now definitely part of modern home decor. Nowadays, it's showing up in bathroom fixtures, kitchen hardware, and even appliances. It's important to note, too, that much of the brass we're seeing now (especially in kitchens and bathrooms) is not the super shiny polished brass of the past; rather, it's often un-lacquered so it develops a unique patina as it ages.

Concrete: Not Just for Driveways

Posted by Courtney on Oct 20, 2014 9:34:16 PM

You’ve probably noticed a theme with the kitchen countertop materials I love – I’m a big fan of more eco-friendly, natural choices that are durable, made for actual working, and develop a patina over time. In addition to soapstone and butcher block, which I wrote about recently, I am a big fan of concrete surfaces.
