Outdoor Space for Creating

The Schroeders wanted a place to play and be creative together, so Chip Wade and his team from Elbow Room answered the family's requests. He created gardens throughout the space so that the family could spend time together in nature. The crew also included aspects that the family enjoys, such as a chicken coop, a hammock, a fire pit and an art studio.

Warm Inviting Industrial Style Kitchen

Renovations of the Carroll family's kitchen include removal of walls to open the space up, unstained walnut wood, quartz countertops, sea foam green and tangerine paint, huge dovetail joints, and a walk-around pantry. Chip's overall goal was to create an industrial-style kitchen that is still homey and intimate.

Airy Small-Space Home Office

Even the smallest corners can transform into productive work areas. Smartly placed shelving adds storage while a desk and rolling chair anchor the office nook.

Old Barn Converted Into Grand Living Room

Study Area in the Kitchen

The Williams family asked Chip and his design team for a functional, family friendly kitchen. That's exactly what they got. As seen on HGTV's Elbow Room, Chip Wade and his team of skilled designers created a multi-faceted kitchen that would be useful for a family with school aged kids. In a section of the kitchen, he placed the natural wood countertops on hinges and added storage for the Williams' kids to study.
