Kitchen Resources

For those who are interested, we are sharing information about where we obtained the materials used in our kitchen remodel. Much of this information is found in individual posts, but we include it here in one post for convenience.

The cabinets were made by WoodWorks Inc. in Oregon City. They were made from FSC-certified flat-sawn douglas fir from a fallen tree obtained from the Mountain Dale West girl scout camp in North Plains.

The schoolhouse lights and cup pulls were purchased from Rejuvenation. The turn latches were purchased from House of Antique Hardware.

The soapstone slabs were obtained from Teresina Soapstone in Roseville, California who shipped them up to Portland for us. The folks at Teresina were really great to work with. They sent us large samples at no charge and were awesome at communication. The local soapstone fabricator was Portland MarbleWorks. They built the sink and installed the countertops.

The range was made by Blue Star. It is a 36" RNB Residential Nova Series. You can choose from 190 colors! We purchased it, along with the other appliances, from BASCO in Portland.

The copper hood was made by Art of Rain. It was built to fit over the Vent-a-Hood liner.

The bridge faucet was made by Newport Brass.

The dishwasher was made by Miele; it is a Diamond G 5975 SCVi. We chose this model because it would accept a wood panel and the controls are on the top edge and not visible when the door is shut.

The refrigerator is a Sub-Zero; a 36" wide counter-depth BI-36UO. We really would have liked to get a bigger frig, but there just wasn't room in our small kitchen. The custom panel was made by our cabinet maker.

The pot rack was made by Yardley Forge. Steve made custom attachment hangers for us, because his standard length didn't work for our situation. He was really nice to work with.

The reproduction subway tile was made by Subway Ceramics. It was installed by Hawthorne Tile. The tile is grouted with dark gray grout.

All of the interior paint colors were chosen from the Sherwin Williams Arts & Crafts paint palettes.

The wood was finished with two coats of stain. The first coat of stain was Mohawk Wiping Wood Stain in Red Mahogany. The second coat was Wood Kote Jel'd Stain in Cherry color. Then the woodwork downstairs was finished with Zinsser Shellac.

We believe the windows were made by Marvin. They are clad with douglas fir on the interior, evergreen aluminum on the exterior.

The hardwood floors were finished first with low-VOC Bona DTS (Deep Tone Sealer) then with two coats of Bona Traffic. Our flooring contractor was Kip's Hardwood Floors.

Sharon believes most of the fir mouldings were purchased from Rejuvenation, but they were purchased and installed by our contractor, Craftsman Design & Renovation.
