KR+H's Talented Installers


KR+H has an A+ team of installers that have an amazing depth and breadth of experience. Below are before-and-after pictures of one particular project where all their skills (including patience) were needed and delivered: A Boston apartment overlooking the Charles on the 10th floor. Large items had to be lifted by crane; the elevator in the building was an old-fashioned variety that barely held two people (one day the installers got stuck on it - too much weight they were told). The builder, Gayle Fiato, Cordis Management, told me workers were quickly asked to use the stairs - a narrow spiral staircase. Any equipment they needed came up those winding stairs with them.

When I took the before photos you see here, walking through and seeing all our installers' tools and equipment and the large inventory of millwork that was waiting to be installed in the place, I thought how will they manage this? There was cabinetry and millwork everywhere - pocket doors, window detailing, and paneling for various rooms, along with all the kitchen cabinets.

The "after" photos below speak well for the craftsmanship of KR+H's installers. Customers and building professionals have great things to say about our installers, too.

 KR+H installers' work is very evident in the dining room where they installed the paneling, built-in cabinetry, and pocket doors.

KR+H was pleased to provide the millwork for this project with Hacin + Associates and F. H. Perry Builder. Along with images showing KR+H's work in the home's library, we thought you would like to see both an exterior view of the addition along with a look into the garden.

David Hacin shared with us a brief description of the project: "In building an addition to this historically significant Cambridge home, H+A sought to introduce contemporary design to a composition of building masses that each reflected the needs and style of their time. The new master suite connects directly to the main early 19th century volume of the house at the second floor and sits above a music room that was separately moved and added to the house (at a later date) from its original location, currently the site of the Fogg Art Museum. New elements, such as the millwork, drew inspiration from the original home and act as a bridge connecting all parts of the house and their respective characteristics." - David Hacin, Hacin+Associates.
