Normally, my tastes lean toward the more traditional, but this is fantastic.

Interesting story on this project.
Unknown to the owner, the new residence was built on top of a cemetery dated around 1820. Anything “below grade” is the responsibility of the owner and what did they find……..bones. In this part of the country, that means the job site comes to a (pardon the pun) dead end. ………to that end, the owner was responsible for the invoices from the coroners office, the anthropology reports, the archaeology reports, the invoice from the all the police, the excavation of the bones, purchasing a new plot and the re-burial of the remains, the invoice was probably half as much as the total cost to build the residence.
Since this project was completed, I always include a clause stating the per square foot cost of storing product in the event the project is delayed beyond normal circumstances.

I call it the “found a dead body”……….kitchen. Amazing how old bones can destroy so many paycheques, for so long, ………I would rather own a boat : ))
find some dead old deer antler, an old bone from a thrown away pork chop, and fight with your dog over it. Find the skull from an old manure pile of a sheep, and no big deal, but find human bones and the shit storm starts.
It’s a crap shoot, kinda like lottery tickets………what are the odds ?

Invoices from the coroner’s office? What, did they have to declare that the people buried there were dead?
How could a house come to be built on a cemetery without anyone knowing?
Nice kitchen in any case!
