Elm Grove Kitchen RemodelJoin us on the 17th annual Milwaukee NARI Tour of Remodeled Homes!  This is a great opportunity to see one of our recent addition remodeling projects firsthand and meet the Bartelt team.

The home was originally a 1850s barn and was converted to a home in 1938. With so much history, the homeowners wanted to retain and enhance its original character while accommodating their modern lifestyle.

Mimicking the look of a carriage house, the new attached garage is a nod to the home’s barn past. Board and batten siding, shakes, and fieldstone complement the existing exterior, and the custom front door is a focal point.

Elm Grove Farmhouse KitchenA new mudroom serves as the home’s hub. Custom lockers offer a spot to store out-the-door essentials, and wood grain tiles and a schoolhouse light maintain the home’s charm.

The remodeled kitchen is conducive to the family’s needs and complements the home’s history. Painted custom cabinetry, double islands, marble tops, subway tile, beams, barn doors, a distressed cherry top, and open shelving – the space is a balanced mix of rustic and refined.

The hearth room’s vaulted ceiling draws visitors’ attention up and features exposed wood, adding warmth to the room. The gas fireplace serves as a focal point for both the hearth room and kitchen. It is a cozy spot to enjoy the home’s views, with large windows, transoms, and a patio door leading to the deck.
