A couple bought this 1980s house knowing that it needed to be remodeled. They wanted a major addition, but the proximity of the house to a floodplain prevented any additions to the home, but a new larger deck was approved.

PROBLEMS: The kitchen had been remodeled by previous owners, but it didn’t fit the new owners’ lifestyle or preferences. The master suite was large but needed updating. A large wasted room was adjacent to the master suite with a door to a poorly-designed laundry room.

CREATIVE SOLUTIONS: The kitchen was enlarged by cantilevering floor joists, and a new window provides a convenient pass-through of food to the adjacent deck. Custom driftwood gray-stained cabinets with displays and great storage are exactly what the new owners wanted. A new folding glass patio door allows access to the deck from the living room. Custom built-in cantilevered cabinets in the remodeled dining room provide storage without using valuable floor space. The new master bathroom has his-and-hers lavatories, plus a makeup area for the wife, and a large two-person shower with a view of their property and adjacent greenspace. The wasted room became a multi-purpose guest and hobby room, and the laundry was converted to an en suite bathroom. Space was created between the multi-purpose room and an adjacent bedroom to create a new laundry room that’s accessible by everyone in the family. Finally, a large bedroom was converted into a TV and gaming room, with comfortable movie theater seats. Read more about this project in a special blog!
