Lake Martin kitchen in progress

Hey everyone, it’s Doug.  Late last week I made a trip to Montgomery, about an hour south of Birmingham, to pay a visit to the cabinetmaker who is crafting the kitchen and bath millwork for the house we’re working on at Lake Martin (which we’ve previously shared with you here).  The kitchen cabinet ‘boxes’ (the structure of the cabinets and the drawer frames–but not the door and drawer fronts) have been built and the cabinetmaker set them up in a full-scale mock up that allowed our client and I to walk through the space before it’s installed in the home.

That's Alan. He's the cabinetmaker. And a very good one based upon my visit...everything is EXACTLY to our design drawings. Behind him is the refrigerator/range wall.


This is our design drawing of the back wall of refrigerator/range wall of the kitchen that is pictured above behind Alan.


Here's the sink wall, which once installed will be completed by a wall of windows overlooking the lake slough next door to the house.


Here's our drawing of the sink wall. The cabinet in the corner is admittedly, very high; but with an 11 foot ceiling the room needs some tall elements to tie the millwork to the space.


Cabinets are also underway for the Master Bathroom.  Combining wood planked walls with elegant cream-colored ‘Danby’ marble, this room is going to be incredible!

Here's our drawing of the vanity wall, old-school tilt mirrors and shiny nickel sconces will complete the space.

Things are really starting to shape up at this project…we’ll post more updates soon!

  1. Tracy, what fun to see the progress! LOVE this plan, especially your plan to have a wall of windows above the sink. I hope you’ll post pics when it’s complete! It must be exciting to watch it all come together.


  2. Hi Doug!

    So glad I got to meet you in the Mountain Brook store this week. Just thought I would let you know I found the perfect napkins for my sons 1st birthday at Swoozies! Thank you for your help scouting out the area for paper products! Hope the new shop is a smashing success!
