With constraints in every direction, this beautiful contemporary design was developed with entertaining in mind. What was once thought of as a lost cause of a skinny backyard with over 4 inches of elevation change was uniquely transformed into six entertaining spaces, which include an artificial turf lawn, 2 tanning areas, a fire pit, and a dining and bar space. The Equinox structure which transforms from a shade arbor to a fully covered roof with the click of a button adds a perfect complement to the water & fire. Previous designers had told the homeowners that the pool needed to be in the side yard which was unacceptable as they wanted to see the space out of their back windows. The final product was exactly what the owners had envisioned for their dream backyard.
THE BOW HOUSE: The open-concept favored in contemporary home-styling is more open than ever in this great looking two-story from design leader Markel Homes. A bowed wall of tall, front-facing windows on the first and second floor enriches the home's interior with a heightened sense of spaciousness and light. The inviting entry leads into the open main floor featuring living, dining and cooking areas, a stunning tile-surround fireplace and large rectangular kitchen island. The curved wall of windows and soft natural light in the upper level master suite give the room a relaxing ambiance. Bedrooms two and three share a full bath with a double-sink vanity and private tub and toilet. An open loft completes the second level. The finished above-garage carriage house is ideals as a rental, artist's studio or home office. The Bow House is a stylish addition to the Prospect New Town streetscape and has pride of place facing the park.
Like all Living Stone Design+Builds, this project was a successful collaboration between the builder, architect, designer, and owner. This homes exceptional design also benefitted by utilizing our structural engineers to pull off the outstanding design, combining the Craftsman/Adirondack exterior with the open Industrial/Contemporary interior.
We love this master bathroom remodel with its HUGE spa shower. It includes a no curb, custom shower pan with a step flooring system. This is what a $50,000 shower looks like. The shower features black textured tile accented with glass. There are 11 Moen heads with 4 body sprays per side, rain heads with LED and recess can lighting, a 6' bench, 3 glass shelves, a Basco shower door, a vanity by Schrock with quartz white tops. In addition, it features beautiful, rectangular, white, deep well sinks with Moen faucets. The mirrors are custom made by a local shop. The three tall towers have interior electric stations for all bathroom essentials, and polished chrome hardware to finish the look. The floors are Shaw Industry hand scraped Hickory. Finally, there is a custom 3 piece 10" baseboard and 2 pieces of 4 1/2" casings, a heated towel rack, and a monster soaking tub with floor mounted tub filler. The bathroom cost is $89.
Our show home was built in accordance with lead home and green building certifications. The indoor and outdoor spaces are equally as important because of the island atmosphere. Our show home has a Coastal Cool design style featuring a unified space where the family can unite while still having their own space. Natural engineered wood flooring, custom cabinets, custom windows, doors, and imported features such as custom artwork & Balinese wood doors and artifacts for decor.
Quality Home Exteriors volunteers once per quarter to help out our community. This particular day we helped out three homeowners that couldn't physically or financially take care of their yards. It was a great experience and we are fortunate to be in a position to give back to the community! As part of our Helping Hands program, we identify elderly citizens and people with disabilities who need assistance with yard maintenance, but cannot afford to pay for the service. We then match the resident with a volunteer group that completes a one-time, basic (yet thorough) yard cleanup. Services usually entail raking, picking up litter, collecting limbs/twigs, trimming bushes, and removing weeds. Volunteers are our lifeblood. Your support is what allows us to effectively promote environmental stewardship and have a positive impact on our Omaha community.
This custom home brings a modern, contemporary feel with a strong black and gray themes in nearly every aspect. Featuring all black trim and 8' doors, cable railing (inside and out), a vaulted wood ceiling in the sitting room, and a hand painted faux marble accent wall - custom is what this project is all about. The spacious living areas and walk out basement of this is a 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath home make it an ideal destination for entertaining and family gatherings.
Every fall, the Home Builders Association of Billings holds the annual "Parade of Homes." Various builders complete custom homes and the public tours and votes on the best home in September. This year Lynnrich had the privilege of completing the exterior of the 2017 winning house of the Parade Homes with their exclusive products including Lynnrich Seamless Steel Siding.
A relocating family from a modern, bustling urban area moved to the traditional south and fell in love with a beautiful neoclassical home, which afforded them tremendous lake views. While a perfect setting, the home lacked the modern aesthetic and space planning they desired. The design accomplished the following:
1) Overcoming a dark secluded kitchen by opening the space to 2 family gathering areas, adding natural light,
2) Anchoring the spaces with a large functional island that was oriented to take advantage of the remarkable lake views,
3) Strategically placing a multitude of stainless appliances within the aesthetic of the kitchen, adding clean line cabinets and durable counter-tops to work with everyday living and entertaining,
4) Eliminating the heavy fireplace stone and creating a lighter plaster finish to better fit the aesthetic of the home, and
5) Creating a dramatic custom fabricated staircase that framed the family room and set the tone for the newly renovated home.
These photos are from a whole house remodel in Portland, Oregon. We turned a one-story modest home into a 2-story showpiece with an attached garage for a growing family of four. The first-floor features a kitchen, living room, dining room, guest bedroom, and full guest bathroom. The upstairs has a master suite including a balcony, 2 children's bedrooms, and a child's bathroom. The exterior got an entire makeover as well including new exterior trim/siding and a new paint job for good measure. Photos credit: Laurie Black
We designed and installed this basement bar in a home for a Navy veteran. He wanted to display his shot glasses from around the world and to entertain his Navy buddies. We had to incorporate the name of the bar into the design which we accomplished via an LED backlit mirror that changes colors.
This client lived on a beautiful ranch. They had an existing stone and wood trellis outdoor kitchen that they wanted to expand upon and a kidney-shaped pool that they wanted to be replaced. Their wishlist included shaded areas that would not block the first story windows, a place to gather/entertain, cooking stations, and a pool that would not interfere with the view of the pond. This final outcome is a two-story porch with a low covered area, a two-sided fireplace, one side for seating/gathering the other for cooking, a restaurant grill insert, and a whole hog pit. We were able to create a true backyard retreat.
At times, Bill had considered purchasing a vacation home but ultimately decided to make his primary residence the sanctuary he desired. When he first approached us, other areas of his 1980's home had been updated to give the ambiance of a modern rustic lodge. However, his great room still needed to be updated with this design concept. We updated the room's existing fireplace with new brown bricks in varying hues. The original fireplace was extended to the ceiling to give the allure of a chimney. Before commencing work on this project, the ceiling had accent beams that certainly contributed to the room's appeal, but could be improved upon. We replaced these with stunning logs and configured them in a way that gave them the appearance of support beams. Reclaimed southern yellow pine that we pre-finished was also added to the ceiling to promote the allure of a log cabin. The upstairs bathroom was shortened up a few feet to open up the sightline within the loft.
This home, located in Oakland CA, received a full outdoor redesign. The homeowner is an avid gardener, so it was important that the new hardscape design didn't overpower the homeowner's new landscape design. To do this, we balanced cool and warm tone pavers against one another. Then, we created an outdoor hearth centered around a custom built-in fireplace. Off that, we installed a full outdoor kitchen equipped with refrigerator, sink, bar seating, and a BBQ grill. Across from the kitchen, you'll find a full paver dining setup featuring an overhead outdoor LED lighting fixture and built-in seating compliments of a paver sitting wall. On the other side of the backyard, we installed an extended paver patio boasting its own seating area. To connect the full exterior of the home, we installed a paver walkway leading from the backyard, around the front of the home and ending at the new paver driveway. To finish things off, LED lighting was installed to complement the new hardscape design.
This project was a charming little country church that we re-roofed with metal roofing a few weeks ago. This church went with a Metro Shake in the Weathered Timber color. The new metal roof did wonders for the aesthetics and will also provide years of protection against hail, winds of up to 120 mph, and more! We also built a new cross to top the steeple. Overall, this project turned out beautifully.
This stately home was beautiful in its own right, but sitting alone atop a hill, it created an imbalance on the property. Added to that, the garage was integrated into the existing basement, taking up coveted living space. The homeowners knew a renovation was due. To balance the scale, we pulled the garage out of the basement by creating a large garage addition. Then, we connected the two buildings with a single-level, exceeding the homeowner's requirements. On the top level of the connecting addition, we created a functional outdoor living space.The new garage was designed to match the scale of the existing home, with finishes and design elements selected to blend seamlessly (common roof slopes, faux-second level, dormers, siding/stone, similar grilles on windows and doors). Inside, they gained immense functionality for their busy family. The new space features a large mudroom with tons of storage and access to the front yard, existing home and garage, a well-appointed home gym, a separate storage room, and a bright new family room.
This beautiful, open floorplan kitchen remodel includes gorgeous Cambria Quartz, waterfall counter tops (which we paired with Executive Cabinetry), and all-wood cabinets. We chose a Sampsonville door style which is sleek and simple. The main kitchen cabinets are Alabaster in color and the island is Amaretto in color to add an accent color and two-toned element to the design. Topped off with stainless steel appliances, Amerock hardware pulls in brushed nickel and an accented glass back-splash from Glazzio Tiles. This kitchen is perfect for entertaining family for the holidays or mingling with friends. We loved seeing the client's face after seeing the completed project. This is yet another kitchen remodel we are proud to show off. No job is too big or small for the Beattie Dev. team! We strive to make lasting relationships and raving fans!
For these homeowners, the perfect recipe for a family gathering is a kitchen large enough for all to help, ample storage space, a dining area that is included in the room, and most importantly, a unique design. Getting rid of "oak everywhere" was also a top priority. Our solution was to open the wall to the dining room.
This large basement in Brookside, New Jersey was renovated into a multi-purpose living space perfect for the busy family that lives here! From an unused storage space, this walk-out basement now features an entertaining spot with a functional kitchen and bar, an exercise room, a mudroom with custom built lockers and storage, a laundry room with storage, and a finished bathroom. The bones that make the space are the custom built-ins and the custom reclaimed wood barn door all built by Pro Skill Construction.
This home had a mixed architectural style - rustic on the outside but traditional inside. Major renovations to the home focused on three main areas - the living room, the dining room and the master bedroom. Walls were removed to open up and better unify the living room and kitchen spaces. One window in the living room became nearly a wall of windows to allow for better views of the lake, and two skylights added more natural light. The challenge was coming up with a creative ceiling design that ?t the intended vibe of the home. What we developed was enhancing a traditional tray ceiling design by wrapping it with solid wood beams and causing those beams to lie inside the tray ceiling and cross its opening. We focused on not allowing the beams to hang too low. The homeowners fell in love with the idea and they chose to implement a similar design in the master bedroom.
This project was an addition of an oversized 3 car garage with a fully functional guest suite above and the conversion/repurposing of the existing basement area. The addition needed to blend seamlessly with the existing structure's style and meet the very high expectations of this homeowner. The existing home did not have enough room for the client's large family and frequent guest visits so this addition was intended to fulfill several criteria.
When Annapolis Maritime Museum announced plans to expand and refurbish the Back Creek Nature Park location, Thompson Creek responded by outfitting the new Education Center with windows. The goal to bring the building back to life as a classroom serves the thousands of children who attend events and programs at the museum each year. Through hands-on experiences, students learn about bay ecology and Annapolis' rich maritime history. It is hoped that this space will be an inspirational playground, fostering nature and a love of the environment. As someone who grew up in Annapolis, Rick Wuest, CEO and President of Thompson Creek, understands the value of promoting educational programs in the area and providing opportunities to discover the magic of the Chesapeake Bay. This installation included 4 windows manufactured at the local Thompson Creek facility in Upper Marlboro. The new windows feature a dramatic black capping to match the aesthetics of the building.
These photos are from a roof replacement on the historic St. John's Garden Association Sanctuary Church at 2401 East 5th Avenue, in Cherry Creek, CO. The roof was replaced with a Natural Vermont Slate tile roof with custom copper flashing, gutters, downspouts, and snow guards. The roof was approximately 3,500 square feet.
This older gentleman wanted a modern, luxurious master suite tailored to his tastes. Mindful that he would be aging in the home, we set out to create a design that would be polished, functional, and fully accessible. With his superb taste and a "shoot-for-the-moon" mentality, we were able to bring these characteristics together.
The clients wanted a fresh, all-white kitchen with improved traffic flow, more work space, storage, and natural light, all while better integrating the kitchen into the home and connecting it to the outside. Further, they wanted a modern farmhouse kitchen that better harmonized with their 1938 Colonial Revival home. In a more personalized vein, they wanted more room by the kitchen's large window for their two oversized armchairs, in which they could enjoy the backyard views and wildlife. As with most remodels, the homeowners had budgetary considerations, and we were able to add much-needed space by eliminating an expendable hallway and a defunct chimney to add square footage and introduce more natural light. Where the clients previously contended with competing colors and finishes from the 1960s, they now enjoy a modern farmhouse kitchen with light-reflecting surfaces and a furniture-style island serving as both an anchor and contrasting element.
The client's goals for this extensive whole house remodel were to upgrade with modern features and add an upscale elegance to this 14,000 sq. ft. French Tudor, originally built in 1977. New features include an expansive kitchen and family room; a grand loggia with alfresco dining, BBQ, and seating areas; and a four-car garage with movie theater/media room on the 2nd story above. Additional luxury amenities include an infinity pool and spa, wine cellar, exercise room, and all new landscape. Coffered ceilings accented by walnut beams in the ceilings of the living room, office, and grand room echo the exterior's Tudor decorative timbering aesthetic. New flooring throughout, including dark French oak and two types of limestone, imported from France-one for interior spaces that flow into exterior spaces and another for exterior patios-add the opulence the owner desired. Elaborate stone masonry work adorns the exterior. The steeply pitched, American slate roof is punctuated by dormer windows.
The challenge we faced was making the kitchen feel and look elegant while keeping the farm and rustic ambience; also we were faced with having to make the ceiling a paneled vaulted ceiling to match the living room area. An added touch was the gold fixtures and cabinet pulls. The intent was to keep the kitchen open and communal while maintaining the charm which the rest of the house is imbued with.
We gave this beautiful home a complete exterior face-lift using James Hardie for the Cedarmill Color Plus Lap Siding, window trim, frieze board, smooth panel porch ceilings, and trim boards to wrap the existing porch beam. For the front porch & back porch, we installed AZEK Building Products Harvest Collection. We installed an EPDM Waterproofing Sleeper System on the top deck. In addition, we installed one new series 65 Transom Window and one New Heritage Style 460 French Door with Trilennium Astragal.
We built this Trex Transcend 18 X 24 masterpiece. The unique Trex Decking diagonal-center layout, Trex outdoor furniture and benches, and finished 3 season room underneath really make this project shine. PBS started with a deck design and customized every detail with the homeowners. Trex Rain Escapes water drainage system, black round metal balusters, and steel framed decking were also strong components of the project. The cascading stairs, riser lights & cap lights make this decking shine at night. The Trex 3 season room is extremely cozy and convenient with fans and outlets. This collaboration with the homeowners was thorough but made sure they got exactly what they wanted. It was our favorite project this year! Trex loved this project so much that they feature it on their website and on the cover of marketing material.
This whole home renovation has a custom hexagon tiled welcome mat. Clean white wainscoting is accented with fresh clover green to add a pop of color to the foyer. The stairway was updated with sleek black rail and wispy black and white wallpaper. The floors throughout the main level are custom silver maple hardwood laid in a show-stopping herringbone pattern. The new kitchen includes a full pantry wall, open shelves, and contrasting island cabinets. White marble countertops, simple white subway tiles, and Carrara marble hexagon floor tiles add texture and elegance to the space. The dining room was opened up and given built-in storage. The new laundry space has unique "Brooklyn Toile" wallpaper which appears to be traditional French Country Toile but includes scenes of subways.
The homeowners just outside of Halifax in Lucasville, Nova Scotia, wanted to upgrade their backyard living area. Private woodland surrounds the property and they wanted to get out and enjoy their yard as much as possible. The original builder-grade wood deck was removed and the replaced with a multi-level entertainment area. The new deck incorporates plenty of space for dining and grilling, with patio doors just off the kitchen. Silver Maple TimberTech composite decking is accented with black aluminum rail and glass inlays to maximize the view. Riser lights help guide you down to the new patio below. The small gravel area outside the basement door was excavated and replaced with Trevista pavers. The curved patio includes a future hot tub space and a comfortable lounging area in the sunshine. Stone steps lead you to the shaded entertainment area beneath the deck. To finish the space and mimic the front of the home, columns were wrapped in white vinyl and custom stone facing.
Creating a beautiful relaxed living space for clients is what we love to do. In this living/dining/home office remodel we took the already open space and gave it a warm feel with plenty of built-ins and a beautiful window seat. Natural light and light gray floors tie the whole house together making it a place our clients can't wait to come home to.
When the clients decided to renovate their dated kitchen, they wanted an enjoyable, casual dining space for their friends and family, with plenty of additional storage. While they were not interested in changing the existing layout, they were interested in updating the style of kitchen, making it light and bright. Gayler achieved this with a transitional design that seamlessly blended both traditional and contemporary elements. Upper cabinets were installed above the center island along with dual sided cabinet doors and Delta Frost textured glass. This created a beautiful focal point in the kitchen on either side of the island, and created a more open feel. The overlay cabinets were painted in a striking white with gray glazing. The upgraded built-in pantry was designed to maximize storage. Beautiful, maintenance free Quartz countertops were installed. In addition, the quartz was placed on the back wall behind the stainless steel Zephyr hood.
Believe it or not, this gazebo started as a stick figure drawing. After several weeks of working with another contractor, the homeowners decided it was best to part ways, as it was too big of an undertaking for that company. Our client was looking for a contractor they could trust, so they were referred to us by a past client. We took them through our Design-Build process and had our architect and design team turn the stick figure drawing into a dream. Every detail was custom, from the 12'x 12' green cypress timbers to the full stone masonry fireplace, and everything in between. We finished just in time to for them to enjoy it while watching some Saturday football 'between the hedges'.
Rich and Sue shared a beautiful home in Gainesville, Virginia, with their growing family but were in need of more space. Since moving simply wasn't an option, the couple decided to build a completely new space. The result was this gorgeous contemporary main-level living addition. The project featured an entire addition comprising of a kitchen, a master bathroom, bedroom, and custom closet, and a living area that looked out onto their serene pool where they wanted to watch their grandchildren splash all summer long.
This renovation was in a historic home that in another life had been a ballroom for a grand estate in Philadelphia. The design objectives included retaining the character of the home through the use of larger scaled cabinets and using those details to transition seamlessly from the ballroom into the kitchen. One of the challenges involved was merging two rooms into the grand kitchen space that you see. Strong architectural detail through the use of columns, panels, and a three-part crown molding also helped the kitchen relate to the home's grand past. Our team needed to have careful attention to detail throughout the design and construction stages in order to retain the authenticity and integrity of this historic home.
Our non-profit organization clients wanted a whole-house renovation for this historic Capitol Hill row house to create an impressive space that their members could be proud of and would also be comfortable for use as a guest house and for hosting parties. The renovation included all the rooms on all 4 stories. We worked with the clients for several months on the design, including selections for the kitchen and 3.5 bathrooms. The renovations highlights include a new lobby and basement suite on lower level; large new beautiful kitchen with island on the main level; rebuilding an odd enclosure and incorporating it into the new kitchen; enlarging the master bathroom by incorporating several closets; updating hall and guest baths and powder room; refinishing all the wood floors, stair railings, and balusters. Installing trim and molding in keeping with historic details; rebuilding the top floor deck; reconfiguring plumbing, electrical, and HVAC systems throughout the house.
The homeowners enjoy entertaining and the party always ends up in the kitchen. The awkwardly configured original plan created a bottleneck for guests and isolated the cook. Perpendicular peninsulas and an angled wall disappeared. The L-shaped island now provides generous prep and storage space, improves flow and eliminates bottlenecks. This is a craftsman style home in a traditional neighborhood, but the owners love modern design. Bold features, such as glass cabinet doors, glass back splash, and a waterfall edge on the counter top, are paired with classic white shaker style cabinets for the perfect balance of modern and traditional.
The client had just built a brand new modern house and behind it was a relatively new pool. However, adjacent to the pool sat a pool/guest house that was decades old and a run down. It had been cleverly hidden with some well-placed lattice screens, but it clearly didn't belong with the new scenery. The goal was to ring a completely new, master-planned concept to the backyard, including renovating the pool, new decking layout, tearing down the old pool house, designing a newly covered cabana with a kitchen, living, dining, guest room, and a full bathroom. And the most important part was that it needed to blend together- they wanted it to look as though it had all been designed, planned, and built together with the new home. Using the same brick from the construction of the house a wall was built that tied into the pool house, incorporating a glass firepit which connected the two to the home. A raised leuder limestone wall with glass tile was used as a dramatic focal point.

The homeowners of this 1970's suburban ranch home had modernized their home's interior to a more clean and minimal style and wanted to apply the aesthetic to the home's facade. Their goal was to completely transform the exterior, upgrading its blah, pseudo-Spanish ranch style to a bold modern aesthetic. The main objectives were to abandon the arches at the front porch, create a clearly defined entryway with a strong sense of architecture, and give the home more curb appeal with new garage doors and a mix of modern materials such as aluminum, glass and flush-profile siding.
The interior part of this remodel involved removing 36LF of interior load-bearing walls and reconfiguring the family room. This, along with new flooring and interior paint throughout, helped create a much more open and fluid concept. The exterior included building a large outdoor covered living area so that the client can truly enjoy the stunning views. This area now includes new hardscaping, a fire pit, beautiful outdoor lighting, and a warm-feeling sitting area for family and friends to enjoy for years!
This is a full kitchen remodel featuring Showplace Wood Products Cabinetry with Pure White perimeter cabinets and contrasting Dark Greige island. Ocean Beige granite countertops and backsplash tile by Tesoro and Glazzio complement the space. Plumbing fixtures by Kohler include the touchless Sensate faucet and Riverby undermount sink. The hardwood flooring is finished with Colonial Gray.
This was an exciting home makeover in Marietta, Georgia, that included many changes such as new James Hardie siding, gutters, doors, shutters, and painting. Painting brick is a popular trend and is requested quite a bit by our clients in the Atlanta area. Homeowners love the outcome! We used Sherwin Williams premium paints and the expert advice of our Color Consultant to help these homeowners with the transformation. Colors included: Mega Greige (SW7031) for the siding, foundation and brick, Tricorn Black (SW6258) for the front door, Pure White (SW7005) for the trim and other doors. Vinyl shutters came in pre-finished black and gutters in pre-finished white. The homeowner, Rachel Wiley stated in October, "I'm still processing the transformation and I am still in love with the results."
Our customer's 118-year-old home in Tuckerton, NJ was damaged when a fluke food-truck explosion occurred on her street. She contacted us for repairs and an intensive exterior project began. We replaced her damaged asphalt and cedar shakes roof with GAF's Timberline HD singles in Charcoal. Much detail went into her siding to keep its historic charm. We used CertainTeed's Monogram D4 siding in Cypress and added accents in the dormers and trim in Autumn Red and Lights Maple. New shutters gave a finished touch. Before and after pictures provided.
This project changed our clients' lives! We took their master bathroom from drab and dated, to elegant and functional. We added age-in-place features including: a large walk-in shower, plenty of grab bars, a large shower bench, a fixed, and a handheld shower head. The clients can now enjoy their master bathroom for many more years to come.
The client's needs and wants were extensive for their mostly all original 1960s home. Absolute 'must haves' were to transform the front facade and improve curb appeal, add a front porch, plus reconfigure the main level to create an open concept plan to suit their growing family's lifestyle. If we could accomplish those priorities and gain a fourth bedroom, find space for an upper level laundry room, add a second bathroom upstairs, improve the main level master suite, integrate a second HVAC system, and not exceed their max target budget, we would have a satisfied client for life.
This beautiful, newly built, two-story home was crafted using our aluminum roofing products in unique and creative ways. This home not only features Aluminum Striated Roofing Panels on all of the roof surfaces, but the homeowner also opted to use our Aluminum Oxford Shingles on the outside of the upper story, instead of a traditional vinyl siding. The result is a beautifully protected home that will be enjoyed for a lifetime.
Pine Street Carpenters completed a whole-house remodel of this Deck House for homeowners in Wilmington, DE. The unique structure, with a mid-century modern flare, was completely renovated, with a new kitchen and dining area, master suite, bedrooms, family and living rooms, and of course, a new deck.
The homeowners of this project had a kitchen original to their home and it simply was not functional enough. They wanted to have an open kitchen with an island to sit at for casual conversation or breakfast in the morning. They also wanted to portray a French Country and New Orleans inspiration in the design selections for their kitchen. Everything on their wish list was completed. The new kitchen features a hammered copper sink, a multi surface countertop ,including a Mahogany portion and a quartz portion, a vintage pantry door, a copper range hood, and eclectic concrete backsplash and vintage styled pendant lights. The design selections and the distressed cabinets give the kitchen a unique spin on a black and white kitchen.
The client was looking to create a space that was luxurious and contemporary with many added amenities. Within the makeover, many master bath trends were incorporated from removing the jetted tub in favor of an over-sized glass-walled shower, to adding a flat-screen TV and an electric wall-mounted fireplace to add heat and visual appeal. An inviting window seat beneath the windows allows comfy seating as well as ample storage. Two shades of cabinets were used in dark wood and light gray with a few glass panels to accentuate the steel gray wallpaper with a cascading pattern. A few more amenities included: humidistat smart fan to monitor the room's humidity level, recessed electrical outlets, and heated floors to keep the bathroom warm and cozy.
This master suite was transformed from a cluttered, inefficient space, into a cohesive area with intuitive flow and a clean, cozy aesthetic. The enlarged bathroom required relocating plumbing to include a new amply-sized shower with built-in bench. New storage solutions were created throughout, and a little-used hallway became a private sitting room. Character-rich design elements and abundant lighting gave our clients the warm, well-organized living space they envisioned.
The perimeter cabinets are original, and we replaced the floor and built a new island with new cabinets that closely match the existing. All of the cabinets were then restained to match and look like they had always been there together. The second photo show the storage features of the new island like a trashcan, spice pull-out, double tiered silverware tray, and pull-out shelves.
The project features an entire home remodel, with the kitchen as the heart of the home. The client's main interest was to invest in a property that was in a dire situation, with the intent of reintroducing the property to the community in a brand new, current and relatable point of view, while featuring aspects of modern design. The main goal was to create an open and inviting atmosphere by implementing an open floor plan, free-flowing but cohesive spaces, and a California vibe. In order to bring the outdoors into the home, the kitchen was positioned towards the back of the property and flowed into the living area, which opened up to a beautiful urban backyard patio. A mixed use of materials such as Walnut, glass tile and marble throughout the home elevated the space and reinforced the concept of light, reflection and space. The kitchen also boasts the latest flush inset appliances, deep drawers, storage solutions, and a waterfall island as a gorgeous focal point.
This project featured a complete interior overhaul of a typical mid 90's home. The living room had 20 foot ceilings with clerestory windows and a fireplace. The kitchen was at the end of its life and all of the public space in the house lacked character. One of the biggest changes we made was relocating the kitchen to what was a secluded sunroom addition. The 2nd biggest change we made was to create a dropped soffit detail in the grand living room and overhaul the fireplace. This brought the space into human scale while leaving the clerestory windows for light. We used raw steel beams throughout the remodel to accomplish the structural changes and to add a strong industrial modernism to the interior. Partially exposed steel beams support the dropped soffit structure. The gigantic beam above the kitchen island was needed to handle the removal of the old sunroom wall. The steel beam above the 'Play'room was actually already there! It was buried behind a drywalled arch.
Our clients were drawn to this home for its location and views, but they quickly fell in love with the quirky charms of this home. Their over arching goal for the space was to create a light and bright home that maximized their lake views and honored the original details and character of the home. Interior: A large bifold door was added to bring more light into the living room as well as increase the connection between the living room and porch. All trim and millwork was painted white to brighten the interior.Porch: Our clients desired a porch that felt like an extension of their living space. Due to zoning restrictions we were unable to convert the porch to a true four season room, but we were able to add heated ?oors, screens that can be swapped for storm windows in the colder months and a integral drain to remove water that enters during rain storms.
Stunning residential addition with an outdoor living space. This well-designed 420 sq. ft. second story family room extension with adjoining outdoor living space is located in St. Louis, MO. Through expert use of proportions, materials, roof pitches, and window styles, the new addition seamlessly blends with the original 2005 home. This attractive family room adjoins the existing kitchen/hearth room providing a flowing, open space concept.
