CC Kitchen
Story:

Speed and control are intrinsic traits of a champion race driver. Ironically, they can be valuable architect traits for a client and contractor (CC) in a rush as was the case with this remodel project. The client bought a home & sold their current home rendering themselves homeless and responsible for hosting the family Thanksgiving gathering. The contractor called his champion architect, brainstormed a concept and the builder demolished the kitchen while the architect designed it. Four weeks and four meetings later the architect delivered, the builder delivered and the family delivered the turkey! Way to go team CC.
