Mud Room Cabinets for a Historical House

Mud room cabinets for a historic house in Traverse City, Michigan.  The pair of painted cabinets flank a new door and Mud Room Cabinetssidelights that I designed for the project.  The renovation included an entirely new back porch entrance and mud room.  Ekocite Architecture of Royal Oak MI developed the plan and exterior details based on the existing structure.  The door, sidelights, and the cabinets were developed from the beautiful existing moulding details in this important Victorian house. Built in 1900 for the founder of one Traverse Citys first banks, the house took seven (7) years to complete.
