This bathroom is shared by two tween boys and was in need of an update.  The low existing vanity was replaced with a 36” high custom vanity with new fixtures.  Reclaimed wood and new mirrors were added to the wall behind the vanity.  New tile was selected for the floor and  and shower.  

More Room to Entertain

 

This family has kids and were debating whether to buy another larger house in the same area or renovate. They fell in love with the concept of creating a home based around their style and design taste. The client comes from a family of designers, and working closely with our designer, we were able to make their vision a reality. In the end, the house was almost 2,800 square feet total, we added about 1600 square feet.

 

Modern home with the charm of a classic craftsman style bungalow

 

This three bedroom one bath house remained vacant for 10 years with little to no attention given to the maintenance and upkeep of the home or yard.  The home had deteriorated substantially and was home to wasps, squirrels and raccoons.  Our goal was to bring the house back to its original craftsman style while creating a modern, open concept living area for a new gratin of families to enjoy.  The home had no back door to the spacious back yard.   We began by creating a hallway that connect the main living areas to the backyard.  A master bath and closets were added on the back of the house, and the walls that separated the kitchen an dining and living room were elimated.  The kitchen layout was reconfigured and sup dated with custom cabinets and a counter height island.  The front porch was uncovered and brought back to its original craftsman style.  The front porch now offers a perfect gathering place ffor family and gave this house a new lease on life.  The home now fits with the architecture found on the rest of street.  We were able to provide a modern home with the charm of a classic craftsman style bungalow. 

 
 

Two Story New Build

This home has an open floor plan, a large master suite that includes a master bath and walk in closet and a laundry room on the first floor.  The second floor was designed with the kids in mind.  It has a loft area for play, a bathroom and three bedrooms.  A kitchen island was custom built with reclaimed wood and a built in banquet was designed with similar features to compliment the island.  The living room has a gas fireplace with built in bookshelves on each side.  A space was carved out of the hallway to provide a drop zone with plenty of storage.  The space was trimed out with reclaimed barn wood.  

 

 

Modern Farmhouse

 

The Goal with this home was to create as much space and bedrooms. This was a modern Farmhouse and was bringing a new look to Homewood.  The location of the home invited us to make a statement and we wanted the interior to match the profile of the location.  Custom trim work and dramatic colors, and marble gave this house a special touch. Shiplap and reclaimed beams complemented the off-white walls and trim while the dark doors and cabinets made a statement of their own.  This was a remodel in the front of the house and the existing bathroom had a very tight footprint. In order to not compromise the deign or look, we went above and beyond to design and select custom cabinets and fixtures to make the space a focal.  The sink and custom cabinets ended up fitting like a glove. 

 

Modern Cottage

 

 This two-bedroom two-bath house had undergone no renovation work decades.  The kitchen and bathroom were original to the home.  The owners had enclosed the front porch and added a laundry room to the back of the house.  The layout of the home was a mod podge of small rooms that created a very boxed in feel.  Our goal was to restore the home to the original craftsman style exterior while creating an open modern feel to the interior.  The homeowners ask us to for a complete renovation but within the existing footprint.  We were able to create all of this without adding any square feet to the footprint and giving a front porch back to the family.  In order to create a three-bedroom two-bath open floor plan home several walls were removed, a vaulted ceiling was added, the kitchen and bathrooms were updated, a master suite was created, the original porch was uncovered and a mudroom was created.  There were two major challenges that included creating a third bedroom and redesigning the master bedroom to include a larger bathroom and walk-in closet.  We were able to accomplish this by turning a living area into a third bedroom and including a master closet in that space.  The entrance to the third bedroom was reversed so that the door to the room was off the back hallway near the other bedrooms.  The original closet was then used to expand the master bath. 

 

This house had undergone several additions over the past few decades. All of these additions had left the house as a maze of small rooms, many with no defined use. Siding covered the entire house and the result was a bland house with no character.  The kitchen and a guest bath were original to the house.  A sunroom had been added to the back of the house and was not built on any foundation.  The backyard had been taken over by the sunroom and a large slab of concrete that was used as a patio.  The home needed to have a new floor plan that would make sense for a modern family.  In order to accomplish this many walls were removed, the sunroom was demolished, the concrete patio removed and the laundry room completely rebuilt.  The living room was too small for a growing family so it needed to be expanded and opened up to the dining area and kitchen. 

The bedroom walls were moved and redesigned to accommodate a master suite and three bedrooms.  The master bedroom was given a large walk-in closet and master bath.  The master bath now includes a tiled shower, separate soaker tub and two-sink vanity with marble countertops.  A guest bath with pedestal sink, tiled shower and toilet was added to one of the bedrooms to create a guest suite.  The hallway guest bath was gutted and given new tile, plumbing fixtures and vanity.  A combination of old and new pine wood floors were stained a dark color and woven together throughout the home.  We gave the living room more space by enclosing the front porch and adding a new front porch.  The fireplace was repaired and brought back to working order.  We were able to reuse the original mantel.  The living room, dining area and kitchen were given a modern open concept by removing walls.  New shaker style cabinets were installed in a creamy white finish and topped with a black matte granite countertop.  A large kitchen island provides additional storage and seating for three people.  Stainless steel sink and appliances and new lighting finish off the kitchen renovation.  A pocket door was installed to separate the kitchen from the laundry room / mudroom.  The laundry / mudroom was rebuilt and given enough space for washer / dryer, a built in bench and cabinets.  A new water heater was installed in the attic space.  The entire yard was carefully manicured by adding new sod, a privacy fence, shrubs, and flowers.

A younger couple came to us wanting more room for entertainment in their newly bought chopped up 1960 rancher. The floor plan did not match their desire to host family and friends. We went in and removed most of the interior walls and living portion of the home and did an all new kitchen suitable for entertaining guests complete with all new shaker style painted cabinets and natural stone countertops. They had a desire to make their current home a permanent spot for the young family going forward, that entailed taking the existing home and transforming it from a 1950's rancher home to the two story cottage that they had seen in a magazine. As is often the case, when you are opening up an existing home, you are removing a lot of load bearing walls, which created a structural issue that had to be addressed with laminated beams and trimmed in a creative manne

This client came to us with house plans ready and a lot ready to build their forever family home.  The clients desires to have a clean, crisp cottage was our concept from beginning to end of the selections and construction process.  The pallet of off-whites throughout the house as well as the cabinet design, window and trim styles allowed us to accomplish that goal.  The accordion door and the back splash that surrounds the kitchen were also features of the house we fell in love with from the start of the project.  

We designed this whole house from plans to furniture. This house was as turn key as you can get. The rock fireplace was a focal point for the client because they desired to have a warm and cozy living room as you entered the home. The Master bath was spa like but warm and opened into a beautiful master closet.
