Danny Lipford: From the shingles to the flooring, between doors and windows, from electrical to plumbing, and inside or out; what you put into making your house a home takes a lot of time and patience, to make sure you choose something that will stand up for years to come.
I wanted to take a practical approach to this by transforming this classic American Tudor, called the Kuppersmith Project, into a family friendly home, with an emphasis on energy efficiency. That means, from start to finish, I need to deal with products and materials that are made to last, and that’s exactly what I’ve put in to the Kuppersmith Project.
While the work outside the Kuppersmith Project has been going fast and furious, it’s been a little slow inside, because the stain on the wood floors had to dry. Before the clear poly sealer goes on the floor, the tile man sneaks in to put up the glass tile backsplash behind the stove in the kitchen.
This had to be done before Mark can install this cool, contemporary Broan vent hood. Even though it’s thoroughly modern, the hood blends beautifully with the traditional style of this kitchen.
