This was just a basic maple kitchen but a really nice layout and design, if I do say so. The real fun was that it was on the third floor of a ritzy building in St. Petersberg, Fla. Granite tops. Clear lacquer finish. Full extension drawer slides and soft close doors. Standard stuff.

That is a beautiful kitchen. I’ll bet that you really enjoyed building it considering the location.

I wouldn’t say there is anything standard about that kitchen. I would have a really hard time moving out of a house with a setup like that.

Good looking job Sam. Those stairs change things don’t they?

Thanks everyone. Yeah the hardest part of this job was the staircase and the occasionally working freight elevator. We weren’t allowed to use the tenant elevator at all. By the way this was a $3million apartment, each floor, one apt.

The craftsmanship and workmanship look impeccable, but I don’t understand the design choices that were made.
Did the homeowner decide to design everything themselves?
It looks like they took a cookie cutter home kitchen from the 90’s and scaled it up to fit in a much larger floor plan. Seriously, what’s up with that old-school track lighting? When you walk into a $3 mil apartment you want everything to look custom tailored for that space. You don’t want 20 identical looking cabinets laid next to each other because that gives the impression that they were mass produced. You don’t want the same black granite and maple cabinet combination you see in almost every track home.

Am I the only one seeing this?

Sarit – Thanks for your critique. It was about 1995. To each his own.
