Project Planning is a SnAPP

preliminary project planning

Planning a Project? Yes, there are apps for that as well as other online resources to make the process easier—and fun! It’s beneficial to have preliminary information prepared before you talk to a contractor. Project Scope For example, let’s say that you want your kitchen remodeled. Does your kitchen need updating or are there issues with the room’s layout? Will the room be used strictly for cooking or do you envision an open concept that includes dining and casual living areas? Other features that you may need to select include: Cabinetry ~ Style and Finish Decorative Hardware Countertop Material Appliances, Ventilation Sink, Faucet, Backsplash Lighting ~ Task, Ambient, Natural Flooring Material Where do you begin?

Envision a new bathroom as a living room— just for you!

Do you have to book a reservation to use your bathroom? You surely deserve a relaxing retreat to call your own. You may have dreamed of a secret spa hidden behind a revolving bookcase just like in the movies. Well, why not? As we say at Popham—you dream it, and we build it. Adding a bathroom allows you to custom create a space for your particular needs and desires. It’s not always feasible for homeowners to add on to their homes, so many choose to renovate. When renovating an existing bathroom, you may have to design around existing structures, plumbing, electricity, and ductwork. Of course, a good contractor can advise you about those kinds of issues and can help make […]

Your Unique Island Paradise

Purple island makes statement.

You won’t be stranded on this type of island since food is involved! Food brings people together, especially in everyone’s favorite room—the kitchen. It’s no wonder that open floor plan kitchen design is the norm. Open kitchens encourage gatherings of family and friends. While kitchens are known as the heart of the home, kitchen islands have become the hub of the home. Islands offer much more than extra counter space. Today’s islands are an essential part of the kitchen that often includes an area for casual dining, food preparation, and even cooking. So don’t plan on being alone—kitchen islands are always populated! Important Planning Considerations: Walk down the aisle Use space wisely so you can move freely between the island and rest […]

“All Hands On Deck” — Not Possible in a 1950s Kitchen!

Dog loves kitchen

“’Close quarters’” describes my former kitchen,” says Marion, a Coast Guard Veteran. Marion always wanted to renovate the kitchen in the home that she and her husband, Warren, purchased from his family in 1978. Warren’s family had moved to the newly built home in 1952 when he was a teen. Located on Evansville’s far eastside, Warren and his three brothers treasured the years spent at their home. Therefore, he preferred his family home the way he remembered it, and Marion admired Warren’s sentimental side. Warren, who passed away just two years ago, was a retired United States Coast Guard Senior Chief. Marion is originally from Connecticut where Warren was stationed at the US Coast Guard Academy. The two initially met […]

Renovating a Master Bath out of the 80s

When Donna and her husband, Bill, moved into their Newburgh home, they had a master plan—for the master bathroom. It was stuck in the 80s and in desperate need of a bathroom renovation. Big 80s hair apparently required a Big Time 80s bathtub! An extra large corner tub “totally” dominated the room. Its size and positioning made the tub difficult to clean, so it was seldom used. Nearby stood a separate shower that was handier to use, but was tiny in comparison to the monster tub. Space was tight and didn’t allow for a linen closet. Tiny shower—no towels handy—Get Real! It was time to exit the 80s. Donna and Bill called Popham and worked with John Diekhoff to plan […]
