It was my husbands idea....

Hi, friends!
As you may have read in our last post, Boxcar House will be moving to Downtown Frisco next spring. My husband and I had been throwing around the idea of purchasing a home in Downtown Frisco so we could not only be close to the new store but also tie the property in with the store. We left our 3,300 square foot, four-bedroom, three-bathroom home with a gorgeous pool, outdoor grill station, and oversized garage for a 1,400 square foot, three-bedroom, one-bathroom, one-car-garage, 60-year-old home in the downtown Rail District. Needless to say, this has been a HUGE adjustment for all of us, including our golden doodle Chloe. We are starting to settle in now, and every day we love living downtown more and more. We shared our journey with some of our customers, and before we knew it, word got around and we had first-time customers coming in and telling us that they had heard about our move. Everyone wanted to know what we were doing to the house and what it looked like, so we thought we would share our adventure with all of you. Believe me, it’s been quite an adventure so far.
Construction began about a month before we moved into the house. We started in the kitchen, as that’s the largest room in the house and the one that would require the most work. As I mentioned earlier, we have a one-car garage. That one-car garage was also the laundry room. This may sound like a first-world problem to most of you, but I was having no part in doing our laundry in the garage. The only option we had was to bring the washer and dryer into the kitchen. I had no idea how in the world we were going to be able to pull that off. I had a vision for the kitchen, and it didn’t include dirty laundry or an exposed washer and dryer. As much as I hate to give my husband credit for this, he actually came up with a great idea! He suggested that we enclose the appliances in a cabinet and use our reclaimed boxcar wood for the counter top. We figured out really quickly that this was NOT going to be a DIY project, so we hired the BEST. We knew that Mark Corey and David King could get the job done.
Washer and dryer hook ups installed.
Mark and David began building the laundry cabinet.
David knew how much we loved our cabinets at our other
house so he made sure we would love these just as much.
he took the time to make sure every line matched, top to bottom.
Once the cabinets were made, we called in Nathen’s painters 
out of Lewisville. They always do amazing work!
Painting is finished and reclaimed boxcar wood stained in ebony has been installed!
We couldn’t be happier with the finished product!
These guys were able to take our idea and make it better than we ever thought it could be. If you are looking for some of the best carpenters and painters in the industry, email us at and we will be happy to give you their contact information.
I can’t wait to tell all of you what was inside the kitchen cabinets! You can’t make it up!
