Barn renovation in Lenexa, KS. This was a large job with many challenges. The space was large and the items in it are as well. The space is used for private parties and has all the accomodations any group would ever need. We created nearly 200 square feet of countertops in a black wash stain with areas of exposed aggregate. The curved lower bartop is over 21 feet long with an apron front farm sink and 2 ice basins to keep beverages cool. The back bar holds the double tap for the drafts. The galley kitchen consists of over 10 linear feet of top with a cook top and a 10 foot long counter with an oversized farm sink with an apron front and drain boards flanking either side. The drainboards are designed to hold cutting boards for extra work space. We also created a 22 foot long curved fireplace hearth that matches the counters, tying the pieces together and adding additional seating during large gatherings.
Everyone’s favorite pieces are the two vanity sinks. These sinks were cast into live edge walnut vanity tops. The shape of the sinks follow the grain of the wood creating a natural flow. We hand formed the sink molds to be as organic as the wood they sat in. The most interesting of the sinks is the vanity that contains a knot. We couldn’t bring ourselves to eliminate the beautiful knot, so we created the sink to drop underneath it. If you were to peer into the knot you will see all of the water disappear into the drain.
We are also in the process of finishing the floors in the entire 3000 square foot area.
This job had challenges of an extremely tight deadline, the creation of 6 custom sinks, the large pieces, intricate shapes and the installation in and around the custom woodwork and large wooden posts. Definitely a one of a kind project!
