Complete Kitchen Remodeling

A recent remodel done by CCB.

This kitchen was initially designed by a big box store. The Strongsville, Ohio couple asked me, initially to just install the cabinets, without any changes to the kitchen. Like many projects I take on, everything changed!!

First, the measurements taken by the store were all wrong, and the cabinets that were ordered wouldn't fit where they were supposed to so the the order was canceled. Then, a decision was made to remove a built-in pantry and the soffits the old cabinets were mounted on, change the color of the new cabinets, and a new order was placed. Removing the soffits would have meant patching and matching the texture on the rest of the ceiling. Removing the pantry would mean the same patching on the ceiling, plus ceramic tile on the floor. That prompted the homeowners to decide to remove the whole ceiling and install recessed lighting, and tearout the tile floor and install prefinished maple flooring. The ceramic tile went from the kitchen to the hall to the front entry, as well as a half bath. It all got replaced!

The original gas range was replaced with a gas cooktop. A combination convection oven / microwave was also added. Walls were modified to add new electric service for all of the new appliances, additional lights and new switches.

After several weeks, and a few additional changes, this project was completed beyond the homeowners expectations.

Custom Wet Bar

One of our recent customers wanted to remove part of a basement wall and install a wet bar.
This was a great project with lots of custom touches!


Martin Yanik, owner of CCB, is shown here completing the tear down of the existing wall.

Let the framing begin!

The main support for the bar is in place.

With the bar frame done, Mr Yanik sizes up the bar top to ensure the dimensions are correct based on the customer's requirements.

Framing and drywall done!

The customer wanted to save money on the bar top, so 12x12 black granite squares were used, along with a tumbled marble backsplash. The price was approximately 75% less than using
a one-piece granite counter top and still looks great!

Finished! Note the working beer tap and bar sink. The customer wanted to have cool, refreshing beer on game day so a complete tap system (C02, tubing, etc) was installed behind the bar and is easily accessible. The sink uses a custom sump system which required NO digging or breaking of the concrete basement floor. The cost of this drain system is surprisingly low, it's very reliable, and the non-destructive installation saved days of work.

Note the custom red-oak bar rail. This is called a "Chicago Bar Rail". Once cut and mounted in place, it was hand rubbed with Danish teak oil and then polyurethane was applied. This technique takes a little longer, but the end result speaks for itself.

Integrated Window Seat and Moldings

This customer wanted a window seat built when their home was constructed, but the contractor could not do it. So CCB to the rescue! The window seat is frame and panel construction that matches the style of cabinets in the kitchen. Two storage compartments are accessible from the hinged lids on the top of the seat. This crown molding was the finishing touch to compliment the window seat. The stain was color matched to the customer's existing cabinets. The crown was prefinished in our shop and installed with minimal disruption in the client's home.

Kitchen Project

Columbia Custom Built has can renovate and remodel kitchens of any age. Below are some samples of a kitchen that was approximately 50 years old. CCB handcrafted the cabinets and also did all the tile, appliance installation, and plumbing work.

Custom Railing

This customer just moved into a new split level home. The old wrought iron railings (some still visible on the stairs) were not tall enough
for their rambunctious two year old. The old railings were removed and new, solid maple railings and balusters and newel posts installed.
At CCB, we work with you on any stage of your project: here the customer chose to save some money by staining and finishing the railings themselves.
