We at Trilogy Partners were very proud when the kitchen we designed with the assistance of Kathye Conti made the cover of Timber Home Living Magazine. This kitchen had proved quite a challenge indeed. From the beginning we were dealing with a bit of a tight space. Still, we needed to create a kitchen suitable for pros. This kitchen would feature two sinks, Dacor appliances including a 48″ Fridge, 2 dishwashers, microwave, cappuccino  maker, a wall oven and a 36″ Range with convection oven.

Perhaps the biggest challenge however was that during construction we discovered that we had no way to vent the range hood. A downdraft vent would not work with the range oven we had chosen, and venting upward would mean our vent pipe would perfectly bisect a roof valley. This would certainly cause the roof to leak, if not this year, then next. After studying the problem for a week, we decided we really didn’t want to build a chase to hide the vent pipe. We instead came up with a far better, albeit unorthodox, solution.

As the photos show, we left the vent pipe exposed, ran it across the ceiling, and used it as the structure for a hanging pot rack.  A problem had been solved and the solution became one of the highlights of Caleb’s Kitchen.Caleb's Kitchen on the cover of Timer Home Living Magazine

A solution good enough to make the cover of Timber Home Living magazine.

Kitchens are just so much fun to design… especially if you enjoy food and entertaining as much as we do. The kitchen at the Timber Trail residence is different than any we at Trilogy have ever done if for no other reason than the kitchen space is an octagonally shaped room. With eight walls to address in design, we turned to Kathye Conti and the outstanding team at Kitchenscapes in Breckenridge, Colorado.  The result was a thoroughly modern and energy efficient kitchen rooted in old world European concepts. Because the theme of the house was “a centuries old european mountain chalet reborn” cabinets were designed to resemble antique furniture pieces drawn together and stacked one upon the other as though the kitchen had literally been shaped over years of use. The kitchen features multiple cooking, cleaning, and prep work stations, a center island, two sinks, two dishwashers, double ovens, and side by side super energy efficient Sun Frost refrigerator and freezer units. The kitchen is centered around a 48″ Viking stove top with four burners and a grill top with downdraft vent built into the center island. A large family breakfast table, a pass through to the living room bar, stone walls, travertine floors, and wonderful mountain views complete this uniquely envisioned space.

Many believe that the kitchen is the most important room in the house. What do you think?
