Located in the Santa Cruz Mountains, this kitchen had the potential for fresh air and beautiful ridge-top views. However, it was closed off from the stunning views by upper cabinets hanging over a peninsula. So, this kitchen remodel was all about opening up the available space. We added a lovely kitchen island and used stunning, high-end materials for finishes and touches. The awning window behind the sink can be opened for airflow. Bonus; it looks like a picture window—making for a more charmingly rustic view. Now the chef feels like she’s part of the action, inside and out!

We hired Jared Lewis Construction after a long process of contemplating a remodel of our 30 year old home. We decided to “go for it” and completely gut and reconfigure our kitchen, master bathroom, a guest bathroom, and a hallway area. We chose Jared Lewis after interviewing several potential contractors. Jared certainly exceeded our expectations in delivering high quality end results. Jared and his team’s professionalism took away most of the stress of such a large project. Jared’s communication skills are excellent. If he could not be onsite, he would always call to check in. Of course, with any project of this size there were some things that did not go as smoothly as we hoped, but Jared always stepped up to address any concerns that we had. There will always be issues with any large project, but the calm and attentive way that Jared handles them is what sets him apart. Jared claims to just execute the vision of the homeowner, or in our case our designer, Cyndi Mosher. However, he does much more than that. He came up with creative solutions such as vaulting our master bathroom ceiling in a much more dramatic way than our architect’s original plan called for. He also came up with a solution on how to frame in a Marvin Venting Picture Window that was a late addition to our plan, and it looks great! We have completed other remodels and felt that some of the contractors shortchanged us toward the end of the project, as they were anxious to get to their next job. This has not been the case with Jared. All punch list items were handled in a very timely fashion, and all the little extra things we wanted done were addressed. Jared says he wants to ensure the homeowner’s complete satisfaction, and he really means it! All in all, we could not be happier with the results and we highly recommend Jared for any project.
