Another year has flown by, and here we are preparing for the 2013 Remodelers Home Tour in Ann Arbor next weekend, September 28 and 29th. We are showing an exciting and beautiful kitchen that we remodeled – which involved moving walls and reconfiguring the dining room, kitchen and living room. There were some major challenges with moving of the walls, relating to where to run ducts and wires… but Jim Acheson, with his problem solving skills “did it again”, coming up with a creative solution that also became a design asset: a tray ceiling in the dining area was used to hide some of the necessary utilities.
