If ever you are looking for an expert carpenter and builder in Wicklow you could do a lot worse than talk to Mick Murphy who is completing this new Kitchen wing I designed. He expertly made the oak trusses you see on this photo as well as acted as main contractor. The Kitchen represents a traditional style we sometimes do and in the case of this particular house it fits right in. I am looking forward to seeing the completed kitchen in  a few weeks, especially because the client makes the most divine coffee! I would also like to mention that the bay window area in this photo is not as low as it seems, the plasterer is on stilts! The Kitchen is complimented by a rear entrance lobby, utility space, garage with indoor access (from utility) and both east and west side terraces. A new car turning area was created at the front of the house so that the entire rear tarmac area could be re-landscaped as a garden, directly outside the west facing bay window. We look forward to seeing on this project the discreet uplighting system which is being provided by Willie Duggan Lighting in Kilkenny.
