This project started with the challenge of creating an open kitchen for serious cooking and entertaining in a small space. Our design replaced a wall with a multifunctional island, creating connection as well as much needed counter space. Finally, we designed and built a large deck for outdoor living and remodeled a dark corner room into a light & bright home office.

We reimagined the kitchen of this classic Elmwood Craftsman home to include a strong connection to the owner’s beloved garden. Floor to ceiling glass, custom cabinetry and a fully tiled wet bath are highlights of this project. Wide plank white oak floors incorporate radiant heat. Details from the owner’s travels and lives include a custom tile backsplash and built in seating constructed of wind felled Acacia from the property.

Client Testimonial

"Ben and Manzanita Design Build has been such a pleasure to work with. I am now in the midst of my third project with him. Not only is he on top of all the deadlines, budgets, permits etc. in any given project, but he makes each step easily understandable and lays out thoughtful options when necessary. His pricing is transparent and fair and he is engaged and passionate about what he does. I would highly recommend him as a contractor and just an all around good guy :-)"
