Thordarson Construction Inc.

Recently Completed Project: Hoyt Irvington Addition

Scope of the project:

The homeowners love their home, the only thing it lacked was a large kitchen for entertaining.  The existing kitchen was roughly 120 SF which limited their amount of cabinet space, appliance size and their ability to visit with guests while dinner was being prepared.  The solution is an addition of 250 SF kitchen and pantry area giving them a total SF for their kitchen of nearly 400 SF!  Since the home is located in the Irvington Historic District, the design was painstakingly completed to match the original home and after the historic review and design review we hit the ground running!

The scope of work was as follows:


Kitchen w/ island, built-in seating and many other features!
