Jim and Susan's- Photo number 1
The right side wall supplied the refrigerator, stove, microwave, and a wrapped around counter.
The left side contained the sink and dishwasher with little counter space.
Photo number 2
Removal of a partial wall on right side and the wall on the south side. This opened up the kitchen to the south view of the deck, trees, and allowing more day light eliminating the use of the fluorescent light that was used prior before the remodeling. This gives the kitchen a more natural feeling and comfort.

This is the final results in Jim & Susan's kitchen.
With these changes the new kitchen now has more counter space, more floor space, better flow for the cook or cooks, an openness that allows the cook to enjoy the view, and being able to converse with guest when gatherings are happening.
All photos were taken from the north side of the kitchen showing the view to the south side.

"Although Dan has not yet built a house for us, we wish we had known him when we built our passive solar home. In the 20 years that we've known him, he has done numerous remodeling jobs for us including building a deck, installing a totally new kitchen, insulating our entire basement and partially finishing it, and most recently, installing a 1 kw solar electric system on our roof. We depend on Dan for both his knowledge and his skills and we have never been disappointed." -Jim Beaver & Susan Barnes
"My wife and I chose Dan Vos, of Vos Energy Concepts, to build our new home after talking with him and seeing one of the energy-efficient homes that he built, as well seeing his own home that he also built. We have found Dan easy to work with and we have been very satisfied with the job he has done for us, and we highly recommend him as a man of integrity who takes pride in doing quality work. We appreciated his flexibility to work with our design and to adapt as new challenges came up. If we ever build another home, we would hope to hire Dan again." -Jay McClellan
"My husband and I met Dan the year of 2000, while he was putting an addition on next door at the neightbor's home. We appreciated what we saw, a responsible person with an attention to detail.
Our "50 plus" year old home needed some updating. Past projects with Dan include, kitchen remodeling (counters, sink, and cupboard refinishing), replacing a curving staircase, installing skylights, and building an outdoor deck. We eventually had Dan screened the deck and inside on the connecting wall of our home "log" siding was put on. The summer of 2011 work included a cultured stone rock facing that covered the outside brick chimney and indoor fireplace.
Over the years, this house has truly become "Home." We think of Dan when we have our ideas, and with his experience and artistic talents, our remodeling projects were solved and he has achieved quality results! We've trusted Dan's work for over ten years!" -Deb & Lee Weemhoff
"We have worked with Dan Vos for a number of years, and in that time he has remodeled our entire home. Our home is an older home which had many challenges requiring custom built solutions; kitchen, bathrooms, stairwell and back entry design, cabinetry and tile work. Dan has done extensive work on the outside of the house as well, including-decks, pergolas, and outbuildings.
We have been very please with Dan's work and it has been a pleasure working side by side with him in our many projects. If you are interested, you are welcomed to come and see Dan's work first hand."
-Michael and Sue Callihan
"Dan helped install a solar hot water array for almost 5 years ago in September. It's well built and installation was seamless and fast. We don't pay for any hot water between March and Sept. now. Dan was great and explained the whole process flawlessly."
