Function Has Its Own Beauty

A meeting with Molly McCabe is an encounter with a force of nature tucked into an energetic woman, dressed in jeans and comfy shoes and trailed by Miss Mara, her English spaniel. The clarity of her thought is like the renewal of a cold dive into a mountain pond. It knocks out the cluttering nonsense of random thoughts. As a straightforward, factual thinker, McCabe would probably laugh at that description of herself; however, her enthusiasm and openness to the unexpected is as much a part of her drive as her clarity.

Yogi Berra, the unintentional American wit, advised that when you get to a fork in the road, take it. It takes a beat to get the conundrum here: Take one fork. Leave the other. McCabe has reached that proverbial fork and made a choice. Rest assured that her decision was as well thought out as any design-build projects undertaken by her company, A Kitchen That Works.
