Green design and build kitchen in Reclaimed Fir

This chefs kitchen in portland was custom designed for the small period farmhouse.  The "hutch" by the range is a custom height that works for her as a baking prep area.  The cookbook shelf is paneled using her collection of vintage wine crates including one I had custom laser engraved which was owned by her late uncle!    This farmhouse style kitchen features hand made cabinets built from reclaimed fir.  The Douglas Fir cabinets give the room a warm glow and a truly soulful feeling.

 

Reclaimed wood cabinets in Portland are only available with a custom cabinetmaker.  This option would not be available with stock cabinetry, off the shelf cabinetry or even semi custom cabinetry in Portland.  Most original Portland kitchens would have been made of Doug Fir as it is the prevalent species available in the Pacific Northwest.  It is important to me if we are designing a custom period kitchen that we understand the options for period design, wood type and layout and that we also consider how a person uses their kitchen so we can offer customized solutions.
