Colonial Expansion

Colonial style homes are boxy and cut up into smaller rooms by nature. The central stair system makes for smaller rooms at the upper floor, including the master suite. The primary goals with this addition were to expand the master suite, relocate the laundry to the upper floor and add an additional bedroom and guest bath. During the design phase, a lower floor mud room and kitchen addition were integrated into the overall plan. Architectural…

My Blue Heaven

This 1971 two-story home had limited storage, forcing the use of plastic bins for the additional items. A 4-foot expansion toward the back yard included a 26’ concealed beam supporting the upper floor. The terrazzo floor was too expensive to remove, impossible to match, and so the schematic layout went through several iterations to accommodate the decorative flooring.  A complimentary floor surface at the addition is delineated by a large island for culinary accouterments and…

Custom storage allows for better access to kitchen wares by making the boxes built to 1/8″ increments instead of 3″ increments. Cabinetry was painted in place…

The barrier-free shower was enlarged to use the deck of the more comfortable tub as a foot rest.

Sweat Equity

Not every addition is designed to sweat in. After considering a main floor addition for an exercise room, our customer came up with the idea of having it located over the existing game room below. This meant it would be accessible only by the master suite – which worked out well for the adjacent bathroom and steam shower. The design began with engineering the floor loads and designing the mechanical layout through the new structure. …

The Yoga Connection

A 1962 daylight rambler with a lower floor used only as storage was upgraded to a usable guest suite and yoga studio. Design details were to replicate the finishes of the upper level with bright and cheery tones. The project required replacement of much of the existing electrical, plumbing and mechanical systems to bring them up to code. Wood burning fireplace was converted to a gas insert and insulation added at the exterior walls for…

Tres Chic Rambler

This project was very special in that it was a major remodel of the family home that this father-daughter duo spent her growing up years in, and by circumstances have been brought together again to share. They desired a kitchen that was incorporated with the rest of the home. The vision was to create a great room concept and integrate the adjacent rooms while increasing storage and comfort in the kitchen. Secondary goals included a…
