The owners came to us after we had just finished a new custom home for their neighbors. We started the design process by looking at a plan that they already had for an addition to the home from a few years back. The design called for a new addition to solve the problems of there old space. Our final design looked at rearranging the space they already had. We only added about 50 square feet but we made all the existing space usable. The exterior of the house was very Colonial and the interior was in need of an update. We wanted to keep the formal feature that go with a Colonial but make it easy to live in.
The main floor was gutted and moved around. The rarely used formal living room was converted into a dining room and pantry and opened up to the new kitchen. The Kitchen was moving into the old dining room and the family room was opened up and renovated. New windows, exterior doors and stucco color coat also freshened up the exterior.
