Open Concept Kitchen in Kendall

After photo of open kitchen floor plan

This open concept kitchen design was part of a complete interior remodel we recently completed in Miami’s Kendall neighborhood. Many of the homes in this area were built with an open atrium in the center, which subtracted over 100 sq ft of living space from the home.

The homeowners wanted to seal the atrium as part of their new open floor plan. The new layout called for removing the existing ceramic tile floors and replacing them with an Italian porcelain plank tile. Dividing walls between the kitchen, dining & living room were also removed, creating a grand open space. One side of the atrium was converted into an island with cabinets, a wine cooler and a wine rack extending from the kitchen. All cabinets are made of solid wood with a white quartz countertop from Caesarstone.

New Covered Patio Construction

We recently added a new covered patio to this home in Kendall. The homeowners purchased their pre-construction home in 2012 and wanted to add outdoor space.

The new covered outdoor patio adds an additional 500 sq ft of outdoor entertaining space with paver floors, ceiling fans, a bar & sink. The Dining Room window was converted to Double French Doors, giving access to the covered patio through he Dining Room and Guest Bathroom.

The roof on the covered patio was built to match the pitch of the main structure and covered with the same double roll cement roof tile.

Below are before & photos of the building process for this new covered patio.

Open Kitchen Design: Before & After Photos

Rausa Builders Corp. recently completed the open kitchen design in Kendall. Opening up the kitchen required knocking down an interior wall and relocating an interior door. These modifications helped amplify the space, giving the new kitchen an open & inviting feel. Removing the interior wall allowed for installation of the Kitchen Counter Peninsula.

The Shaker style kitchen cabinets were complimented with a White Quartz Countertop and Stainless Steel Appliances.

Roof Replacement: Shingle & Flat Roof

Finished Birchwood Architectural GAF Timberline Shingle Roof

This homeowner in Miami’s Kendall neighborhood contacted Rausa Builders for their roof replacement needs. Their shingle & flat roofs were both old, weathered and well overdue for replacement. The tongue & groove in the rear patio roof had termite damage and was also completely replaced.

The old roof was a 3-Tab Shingle Roof and was replaced with a GAF Timberline HD Birchwood Architectural Shingle. Architectural shingles add more dimension to your roof than a standard 3-tab shingle at a slightly higher cost.

The gallery below shows the roof replacement process from start to finish:

Below are photos of a 3400 sq ft Architectural Shingle Roof we just completed in the Kendall Area. The home had an atrium in the center with an opening all the way through the roof that the homeowner wanted sealed off with future plans of adding the area as living space below. Once the atrium was sealed, the pool was covered with plastic to keep any roofing debris from landing inside and we began to remove the old shingle roof.

There was minor decking and fascia damage that need to be replaced prior to 30 Felt and Tin Cap being installed. Finally the new architectural shingle was installed giving the new roof a nice texture over it’s large planes.

U-Shaped Kitchen with Island

Omega cabinets with white quartz & blue granite counter top

This modern u-shaped kitchen remodel in Kendall, Florida is part of a complete interior remodel we are currently finalizing. The complete interior remodel was split into 2 phases in order to allow the homeowners to reside in one half of the house while the other half was under construction.

The kitchen features Espresso Omega Shaker Cabinets around the kitchen perimeter with White Quartz Counter Top and mosaic glass backsplash. The perimeter cabinets also have 4 accent cabinets with aluminum doors and clear glass to match the stainless steel refrigerator, dishwasher, wall oven and microwave.

The island at the kitchen center is made of Blue Omega Shaker Cabinets with a beautiful Azul Bahia Granite Counter Top (Blue Granite).

This two car garage was converted into a 2nd Master Bedroom/In-Law Quarters, with it’s own bathroom and closet space. Plumbing was installed and the floor was lifted to the level of the home prior to framing & electrical installation.

The converted garage has it’s own bathroom and kitchen access along with a private entrance/mud room and laundry room access for those rainy days.
