Before — The existing 1960s split entry home on a ten-acre hobby farm had small, dark spaces. The style was dated and contrary to the owners taste. In addition, there was no connection between the driveway and the front entry. Our clients had considered new construction, but they loved the placement of the existing home on the surrounding ten-acre hobby farm. The decision was made to work with the existing structure, but remodel the entire house and add an addition to accommodate the growing family.

After — The new cottage-style exterior suits the homeowner's taste and blends beautifully with the rural setting. Expanded room sizes and a more open layout add greater flexibility. Lots of windows help bring the rural setting in and flood the space with natural light. The new great room is airy and spacious and more in keeping with the family's lifestyle. A large master bedroom suite offers privacy and functionality. In addition, parking, garage space and accessibility were all improved by repositioning the front entry and rebuilding the garage.
