St George Cathedral and the Albanian Archdiocese recently had a ceremony to dedicate the newly renovated chancery and offices at 517 East Broadway.

Original bathroom

New bathroom - mirror above sink and cabinet above the toilet will be installed once they arrive.

Kitchen Remodel

The kitchen was totally remodeled and expanded. The half bath and pantry were removed to allow for more kitchen space, mainly for cabinets. One old window was found boarded up behind the pantry wall. A new window was installed to let more light into the kitchen. Kitchen includes new stained cabinets, granite countertop, dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave, cooktop/oven, new hardwood flooring (oak with Brazilian Cherry inlay border).

Just in case you forgot what the old kitchen looked like.

Old cooktop/stove. This was the extent of the old kitchen.

Now the new kitchen......

And now the final product................

Cabinet knobs. Goal was to compliment the antique glass door knobs throughout the offices.

I heard Lauren's mother is a wonderful cook. We will have to get her over to the kitchen to Christen it.
