Kitchen confidential: The Craftsman of their dreams

The Kicks600 

Granada Hills couple Don and Natalie Kick had no idea what they were getting into when they decided to build the home of their dreams, a two-story Craftsman of their own design.

They are nearly finished with their new 2,800-square-foot house, and what's remarkable isn't just that they survived the ultimate do-it-yourself project, but that the results are beyond respectable. From the porch's rustic boulder walls to the kitchen's custom cabinetry, above, to the second-floor sleeping porch used as their daughters' alfresco playroom, the Kicks' three-bedroom, three-bath house has a level of finish that surpasses its DIY inspiration. Their journey is told in Saturday's Home section, and includes a slide show you won't want to miss.
