To my great surprise and delight Didi Conn, most well known for her role as frenchy in the 1978 movie "Grease" walked in to inquire about a kitchen renovation.  beyond smitten as I'd seen the move maybe 20 times, it was a pleasure to get to know her, be invited to her 200 year old home and develop concepts for a much needed updated kitchen.  pictured here with her puppy Madeline, Didi and her husband, composer David Shire are delighted with the results.  pictured here are some of the demo to the original space.  poorly lit, much of the usable space wasn't enough.  removing closets and irregular, stepped up flooring under the refrigerator provided a new footprint for a u shaped work area with more counter space, lots of storage and lots of light.  on the opposite end, we built a cozy banquette for eating in with storage in base drawers.
