For this project, the goal was to expand the kitchen space to allow better flow for family and friends. The kitchen was somewhat divided and made working in the space difficult for more than one person at a time. Great care was taken during design and construction to make sure characteristics of the home were maintained, such as trim work to match the original, and radiators relocated.
Once the existing enclosed porch was removed, a beam was brought in to support the roof of the addition, along with the brick structure, as the interior was going to be one open space.
Then the foundation was poured, the structure framed in, and the utilities roughed in. Next doors and windows were installed, and the existing kitchen gutted. While drywall was going up on the inside, new brick was being applied on the outside. Next the cabinets were installed and new hardwood flooring following close behind. Once the countertops were installed, plumbing and electrical finishes were made, then paint applied.
The new kitchen is perfect for entertaining with plenty of open space for everyone to be included. Spillover to the outside is an added bonus for those football Saturdays when the gangs all there.
This wall is 8” thick, designed to house the radiators which heat the addition and tie into the home’s boiler system. You can see the venting on either side of the door.
In the powder bath you see the custom trim work done to maintain the character of the rest of the home.

The construction process was a breeze! Having built two homes in the past and this is our 3rd renovation and first time using Willet. Was by far the easiest and best experience. The subs were professional, on-time and very thorough. I had a few finishing touches…Abby S.
Jenny did a great job of getting the design and materials correctly. The project manager would always check in to make sure things were going right. Everyone who worked on the job, from drywall to painting, to everything in between, did a great job. I would…Pat
I am over 70 years old, and I like a company like Willet Construction who dots all the i's and crosses all the t's. What I like most is that when I look at my house, it makes me smile.Doug & Laurie
They have basically rebuilt my entire house over the years. If there was anything that I wasn't satisfied with, I wouldn't have kept using them.Dave
This is the third project that Willet has done for us. They did our basement, our deck, and now our master bath! We've always been happy with their work!Kendal & Carol
Even in a pandemic year, these guys were there every step of the way. Very pleased with the look of our home!Kevin & Connie
We live in a 1927 home. When you do updates with an older home you never know what you might run into. We had an issue hiding behind the walls that did not hold the project up BECAUSE they knew what to do to fix it…Lorenz & Sandy
