    Before, during, and after photo scrapbook documenting the Yonemura kitchen remodeling project.
Yonemura Residence Scrapbook   
For this project I signed on to be the "Monkey in The Middle" aka "Project Manager". Most of the broad concepts and drawings came from my favorite architect Gary Osterman at Architecture+Interiors in close collaboration with the owner Dr. Yonemura. After working on Gary's own home I was tasked to help recruit the right subcontractors and make a big pile of plans and ideas into a successful renovation. Although much of the job was accomplished by the many professionals sequenced through the site, all of the re-framing, design integrations and finishing touches were dropped in my lap.
