During my first meeting with this wonderful family their first and foremost wish was to add some street appeal to the front of their home. The original structure was very flat and plain and didn’t offer a lot of character.
We tossed around a couple ideas and with those I brought in an architect/ designer to put it all to paper.
A full enclosure was constructed over the home and we removed one half of the roof in order to change all the roof lines, extend one section of the home forward and give the house the much needed character it was lacking. The structural elements proved to be quite challenging but with the great work of C.A. Boom Engineering we were able to make it all happen.
Although we did not add a lot of square footage to the home the end product was an amazing, totally open concept space with the addition of an oversized 2 car, fully finished garage below. Something the homeowner was in desperate need of for his 2 collector cars.
The main living areas spared no expense with top of the line millwork, appliances and floor finishes, the hardwood looking porcelain tile was installed in a herringbone pattern which continued through to the front patio space. The kitchen is now a far more functional, large open space great for entertaining as well as a place for the two young boys to spread out all their LEGO!
A bedroom on the upper floor was removed and the space turned into a huge walk in closet for the master. This allowed to double the size of the ensuite which was completely re done including a large 2 person steam shower.
This project took approx 6 months to complete and it was a wonderful experience not only working with but getting to know the homeowners. They were instrumental in many of the selections of finishes and products and had incredible vision towards the end product.
