We do a lot of kitchen and bathroom remodels for our clients- and it is always stressful for my office working with clients who are without a space for a period of time. It really puts the pressure on to get the job done.
We just embarked on a major kitchen project in a spectacular Julia Morgan house here in San Francisco on Monday.
Now the client will be without a kitchen for about three months (cross your fingers PLEASE!)
We always try to go out of our way to make sure that they client knows what the consequences of living without a kitchen really means. So we always try to set up a little mini kitchen somewhere in the house with a small fridge and a microwave and coffee maker and a little table with a bowl of fresh fruit and snacks like crackers and cookies set out. Little water bottles and sodas and a bottle of champagne with a note with pre congratulations wishes.
This is just what we do- but when I was looking through my article binders today I came across what New York designer- David Carfiero offered his client Chloe Sevigny while remodeling her bathroom. It totally made me smile and remember why I saved this. I love how it is a little extreme as well!
If you were a client and going through a construction project and had to live in your house while it was going on- what would you want to make you feel better?
