Maintain integrity of 1920s house in Chester, add functionality to kitchen

Charles Lantz Cabinetry Feature Project March '12

"Once again Charles and his crew have provided us with an exceptional body of work."
- Norman Whynot, General contractor

classic kitchen

This charming, Chester Peninsula house required significant renovtions and restoration.
Charles Lantz and general contractor Norman Whynot designed the kitchen which houses soapstone countertops and a butcher block topped island.

The Nova Scotia clients wanted the best - Baltic birch was used in the kitchen. The gas range is by Wolf. Other appliances came from Jessom Food Equipment.

The build's purpose was to deliver functionality to the kitchen and connect it to the dining room
by removing the butler's pantry.

Charles Lantz comments:

"Norman has the vision necessary to have such a great conclusion. I would like to thank the Client and Mr. Whynot for allowing CLC to help them with their project. Yours truly, Charles Lantz"

Norman Whynot comments:

"Once again Charles and his crew have provided us with an exceptional body of work. We brought Charles in to build the kitchen and six bathroom vanities and he "nailed it."

"The Peninsula Project was a big job for us and although Charles' production times were tight, he delivered.

"His team continues to use only quality materials, hardware and finishes and lead us through the design and installation phases of the project as only they can.

"This is truly a custom kitchen and making it fit in a 1920s house was a challenge. His working relationship with our plumbers, electricians and propane gas providers is exemplary."
