Collin and Susan Urgo, Barry and Carole Rubin, and Lucille and Andy Patrichuk, homeowners in the Quail Run development of Darnestown, MD, were all in need of more space, better designs, and a fresher look for their homes. We’d like to thank all three families for not only choosing us for their renovations, but also allowing us to display them at a recent open house to showcase our work.
While each project had its challenges, none was more perfectly suited for a redesign than the Patrichuk’s all-too-cozy kitchen. “It was much too small,” said
Lucille. “We wanted a room that was suited more for cooking, and that would give us space for entertaining.”

The Patrichuks had seen us working on their neighbor’s homes and, fortunately, asked about us. “We saw DG Liu’s work firsthand,” Lucille said. “So they came with a good reputation. And they were very reliable. For the most part, they were here every day.”

Designer Debby Saling created an "out of the box" kitchen plan that included opening up the tiny entrance hall, removing the bulkheads, and reconfiguring the space. We bumped out a back wall, took out the deck, and replaced it with a beautiful stone patio. Finally, we updated counters and appliances, and traded a
little-used kitchen desk for a wine refrigerator and bar sink.

“Our home has a whole new look, a whole new feel,” said Lucille. “We’ve had small get togethers and family here for weekends, and it has really made a big difference.”
