With the chilly temps and the seemingly endless snowstorms New England has been getting hammered with, it’s easy to get caught up in bemoaning Old Man Winter. Unless you’re these guys-Crown Point Designers Joshua Doonan and Albon Powell often snowshoe on their lunch breaks. Here, they’re jumping off the huge snowbanks in the Crown Point parking lot into fresh powder. Cool.

Super Bowl Sunday was particularly cold this year, but that didn’t deter the more than 150 runners and walkers who came out for the 4th Annual Crown Point Pigskin 5k! Proceeds from the race will go to a fund that subsidizes local children’s participation in sports programs through the Claremont Parks and Recreation Department.
New this year, each bib contained a microchip that was tracked by Millennium Running timing service. A full list of results may be found here.

We are proud to announce that a Crown Point Kitchen Designer has won the Excellence in Kitchen Design Award from New Hampshire Home Magazine for the second year in a row! Peter Ippedico accepted the Award last Tuesday evening at the annual reception in Manchester.
Peter Ippedico designed this custom kitchen with special touches like multiple cabinetry finishes and island legs crafted from reclaimed wood.
You may recognize the winning kitchen as it was featured on the blog last fall, and also within the pages of NH Home Magazine’s September/October Kitchens issue.
Open and inviting, this custom kitchen features cabinetry in two different painted finishes and a large island perfect for gathering the family together. The island legs were reclaimed from beams in an old barn that was taken down on the property for a unique addition to the personalized space.

This custom kitchen was decorated for the holidays as part of the Concord Museum Holiday House Tour. Custom inset Crown Point cabinetry is finished in Pointing by Farrow & Ball.
Crown Point Cabinetry was honored to be a sponsor of the 4th Annual Concord Museum Holiday House Tour this year. On December 9th, seven homes in Concord, MA opened their doors to reveal beautifully decorated interiors for the holiday season! Despite the cold temps and pouring rain, the tour had a fantastic turnout and attendees enjoyed complimentary treats and plenty of holiday decorating inspiration!
A Crown Point kitchen, designed by Crown Point Designer Nina Archambault, was a featured room on the tour. Nina made the trip down and today we’re sharing some of her snapshots from the day!
Windows above the base cabinetry and a pair of full height glass doors help fill the kitchen with natural light.
A collection of Christmas colored treats filled the spacious island top made of solid walnut.
A custom butler’s pantry includes a full sink and dishwasher, true-lite glass doors, plus open shelving and a desk area.
Proceeds from this annual event provide vital support for the museum’s educational initiatives. They offer hands-on programs reaching over 10,000 school children in New England each year.

This charming Crown Point kitchen is just one room resulting from over 5 years of careful renovations to an old farmhouse in Southern New Hampshire. It was very important to the homeowners that they take their time with the renovation, preserving as much of the history of the old home as possible. We worked directly with the homeowner to realize this dream, providing custom inset painted cabinetry, and incorporating reclaimed wood from a barn on the property for the island legs.
“When we realized that the island design would need support posts for the counter overhang,” the homeowner said, “we thought it would look nice to use some of the old beams from the carriage barn that was attached to the kitchen.” They brought their idea to their Crown Point designer, Peter Ippedico, and they worked together to make it happen. The beams were brought into the Crown Point cabinet shop where they were stained to match the other exposed beams in the space.
“It’s a nice mix of old and new,” said the homeowner. “I like to call the style ‘snappy rustic.'” The island legs are perfectly at home in their new setting as the legs for the family’s kitchen island. They are a special touch in a room where the family spends a lot of time.
