The Nesbitt Kitchen
When Michael Nesbitt and Andrea Deckard purchased their five-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom home in east Springfield two years ago, they knew they had a lot of work ahead of them. “It had a great bone structure, but it was outdated,” Deckard says. But for her, an interior designer, and Nesbitt, a general contractor, it was a welcome project. In search of an open, airy and bright kitchen with clean lines and a modern finish, the two got to work planning—then doing—to create the ideal space for their family of four. After removing two walls, reconfiguring other walls, adding more cabinetry and updating nearly all surfaces and appliances, they now have a space they love to call their own. “This is the room we live in,” she says.
