Feinmann Project Showcase: Tastefully Expansive in Westwood

Last April we took you behind-the-scenes of this project in Westwood. Today we share the results with you in one of our project showcases.

Feinmann Westwood home renovationA Westwood family came to Feinmann seeking to make their first floor more efficient and better suited to their needs. At the back of the house there was a wall dividing the kitchen and living room. A deck with sliding doors sat off of a large pantry. Windows along the back of the house were different sizes and not in scale with the home. Read more…

Valentine’s Day in the Boudoir

vday heartWill you be spending part of your Valentine’s Day in the boudoir? Is your master bedroom romance-worthy? Or is it filled with clutter? As a residential design/build firm we renovate a lot of kitchens and baths. We’ve written a lot about kitchens and baths.

A Winter’s Tale of White Kitchens

snowy roadWe offer our own Winter’s Tale of the classic white kitchen. Shakespeare wrote in “A Winter’s Tale” of the “lawn as white as driven snow.” Most of us in New England are experiencing driven (drifting) snow and white lawns. Yet white has some magical qualities and interpretations – purity, light, brightness, innocence, goodness and cleanliness. Read more…

Ice Dams 101

ice dam‘Tis the season…for ice dams. Current weather conditions make our homes vulnerable to icicles and ice dams. Many homeowners may not know the basics so we’re offering Ice Dams 101. We asked our experts here at Feinmann – our wonderful Project Management team –  about ice dams, causes and prevention.

Q: If an icicle is present, does that mean there’s an ice dam?

A:  Not necessarily but it is an indicator that there is a potential for an ice dam to form. Read more…

Sneak Peek: JP Project in Progress

Feinmann project houseA couple who had recently purchased a 1960s Colonial in Jamaica Plain came to Feinmann looking to renovate the kitchen, open up the floor plan and improve the first floor layout and circulation. The traditional center hall Colonial floor plan meant there were walls dividing every room and the awkwardly located powder room made the passageways feel dark and narrow. A breezeway between the garage and the back of the kitchen became part of the design solution for the transformation of this Jamaica Plain home. Read more…

Project Showcase: Carlisle Kitchen Renovation

Feinmann Carlisle kitchenThe owners of a contemporary home in Carlisle wanted to update their kitchen, enlarge their center island and improve the connection to the dining room. Feinmann transformed  the space with strategic changes, within the same footprint, making details like the placing of elements and the use of sleek and textured materials essential to the success of the project.

Originally the homeowners were imagining cherry cabinetry, but they were open to creative and modern design ideas. “When Peter came to the house he took real interest in building a kitchen that would fit the design of the house and meet our needs,” the client explained. “That was when we knew that Feinmann was the best choice for us. Anyone can rip out an old kitchen and put in some new counters and cabinets, but we wanted someone who cared about design, style and function.” Read more…

Happy Thanksgiving from Feinmann

Happy Thanksgiving circleWe have much to be grateful for here at Feinmann this holiday season. Our clients inspire us to come up with wonderful solutions to their design dilemmas. We enjoy getting to know them and feel great when they are wowed at the end of a project. They give us wonderful testimonials and Houzz reviews and we are deeply appreciative.

Our team grew this year with a new designer, a new project manager and new lead carpenters. We enjoy working hard together and playing, too. We have families, friends and homes to cherish at Thanksgiving but we know that is not the case for everyone. Read more…
