The restaurant features an original garage door that opens to allow an indoor-outdoor experience for guests seated at the walnut counter. The steel and glass door pairs with steel and wood barstools and an exposed brick wall for an ultra-industrial look.
The Graham residence after the kitchen renovation by licensed contractor Chip Wade. As part of the renovation, Chip Wade added a garage door to allow for indoor and outdoor entertaining and tons of natural light. His design also included a custom concrete table weighing over two thousand pounds. The table also housed the cooktop and sink without exposing the working parts under the table, making for a clean look. With the addition of a garage door, a custom table and all new appliances, the kitchen area is now perfect for entertaining large groups, as seen on HGTV's Elbow Room.
