Feature Project

Kitchen Remodel & Custom built-ins

Kitchen Remodel

This project included a kitchen remodel, two custom built-ins and an overhaul of the entire exterior of the home, along with new windows and a new deck.

The original kitchen was segregated from the rest of the house and had an odd layout that was not the best use of space. A wall was removed between the kitchen and dining area and the kitchen was reoriented to maximize function and create a much better flow of traffic from the kitchen to other portions of the home.

Here is what the client had to say about their finished project:

"From start to finish we were pleased with all aspects of the job, from the Thorson Staff to all subcontractors.
We love our new kitchen and know we've made the right choice by choosing Thorson."

Product Spotlight

Switchable LCD Smart Glass

New innovations in glass technology allow for glass to go from clear to opaque at the flick of a switch. A layer of electrically charged LCD film is laminated between pieces of glass and allows for a clear view in "on mode" and for privacy when turned off. The product has been used largely in the commercial sector to create instant privacy in offices, conference rooms and hotels and is now popping up all over the residential building & remodeling industry.

Some companies that offer this technology also have it available in film form that can be retro-fitted and applied to existing glass almost anywhere. Smart Glass can also be used as a projection surface and can have touch-screen film added as well, making the possibilities almost endless.

Wondering how you can incorporate Switchable Smart Glass in your next remodel?

  • Shower Doors
  • Room Dividers
  • Walls
  • Windows
  • Interior & Exterior Doors
  • Cabinetry
  • Projection Surfaces
  • Anywhere glass is installed!

Rob tries his hand at gardening

Finish Carpenter Rob Hall is trying his hand at gardening this year. Not just any Gardening... but "Square Foot Gardening"...ever heard of it? We thought it sounded like the perfect type of garden for a carpenter's transition into gardening.

The photo to the left is a preview of the process. Be sure to ask Rob about the progress of his little growing project next time you see him on site!

Wrigley, the newest addition to the Thorson Staff

We have a great new staff member who brings a real positive energy to our offices. He has a super personality, all of the staff get along great with him and you can't help but smile when he enters a room.

His only real down fall is that he tends to sleep on the job...

Wrigley digs the company apparel!
