Newly Designed Kitchen & Dining Room

Newly Designed Kitchen & Dining Room

With every new project there is always a before, but in most cases, we forget to take photos and focus on the after. So when our client, Matthew, sent us these before photos, we were thrilled.

Our McDonald Contracting team created a more modern kitchen by knocking down a wall to open up the dining area, used more neutral colors, installed white cabinets, and used gray floor tiles with white tiled backsplash. Everything came together perfectly in this kitchen remodel and we think it looks fantastic.

The homeowner’s we’re also pleased – “Thanks again for all the work you guys did. We’re really happy with the outcome.”

Lincoln Home Renovation

Lincoln Home Renovation

Our team has been working on renovating this modern and beautiful Lincoln, MA home since last summer. The project has been extremely rewarding, teaching us new building techniques and allowing us to work with some talented designers.

The home was originally designed and built by Acorn Deck House Company. This local company is known for building one-of-kind homes, all featuring open floor plans, walls of glass and soaring ceilings. The homeowners loved the design of the home but wanted to make changes to the interior as well as update the exterior of the home.

We worked with local designer Caitlin Sweeney to help us design the new layout. These types of homes can be tricky to renovate mostly due to the fact that the wood ceiling planks are actually a structural component of the house… making it impossible to hide any wires or pipes in them. We were able to add fake beams and increase the size of the existing beams to make them useful while also enhancing the design of the house.

The homeowners wanted the house to feel as it was an extension of nature while also being modern. The large windows allowed us to frame the surrounding nature and the cedar siding makes the house fit perfectly into the rock foundation and neighboring trees. The cable railings, wooden ceilings, and sun-filled skylights help to complete this home. It’s truly one-of-kind

Stone Porch Home Renovation

Stone Porch Home Renovation

It’s astonishing to see the before and after of this Arlington, MA home renovation.  Our McDonald Contracting team added some serious curb appeal to this home by installing a stone porch, new siding, a brick walkway and a small stone wall garden.  The addition of the stone wall porch and the slate blue siding really gave this home renovation a big personality. Watching the transformation of this house, and that gorgeous farmer’s porch, was truly amazing. Check out it below –
