We are working at installing cabinets in our East side new home project. The cabinets were custom made for the home using red oak to match the interior trim. A nice sized island is included in the kitchen. All the cabinets have rail and style doors that are inset into the face frames. This is a slightly more costly way to make cabinets, as opposed to overlay doors, but the appearance is very pleasing.
There is a screen porch connecting the house to the garage. Instead of using wood components to create the screen walls we tried a new product from NorthStar Screen Systems. The screen walls are constructed using extruded anodized aluminum. The product is very tough and will not rot or ever need painting. We selected screen walls that included balusters in the lower portion which provides protection for the screen.
