Mouse-gray kitchen and staircase made of ash tree in Ihaste.

This young family with three small children had a very clear vision of what their new kitchen should look like. Although integral, our role in making this kitchen was a marginal one. The design process went very quickly and received instant positive feedback. We fondly named this modern kitchen “a mouse-gray kitchen”. In addition to the kitchen, Wesse’s craftsmen were also given an opportunity to make a staircase using ash tree. The result had to not only look good but also be safe for the little ones! We are happy to say that Ihaste, the suburban neighbourhood of Tartu, has definitely gained a modern and comfortable single-family residence!
