Other Award: 

  • 2020 Chrysalis Regional Award, Addition under $250,000

This family of four love to entertain and having friends and family over. Their 1970 Rambler was getting cramped after their two daughters moved back and that was their cry for help.

They also designed to have two door garages added into their home. This rambler was sitting high in hill which allowed to have a large double door garage and driveway on the right of the home. The big problem was if they wanted to build this addition on right side, they were encroaching into their set back by 10 feet.

The have consulted our designers and architects and learned that we could help them build their dream addition through a special permit process. Even though it was a lengthy and involved process it was worth it to them to gain the space.

They have a very modern theme in mind for both exterior and interior of their project.

The project started as excavating and clearing 7-9 feet of dirt allowing the driveway and new garage space. All utilities were relocated to clear area.

Above this new garage space, there was the home for brand new dream kitchen for them. Trading their 10’x7′ galley kitchen with this 13’x30′ gourmet kitchen with 48″ stark blue professional gas range, a 5’x14′ center island (place to eat, entertain, and serve large parties) equipped with prep sink, wine cooler, ice maker, microwave and lots of storage space.

Front and back windows, 13′ cathedral ceiling offers lots of daylight and sparks up this beautiful kitchen. Tall Espresso cabinetry complimented with contrasting island, and breathtaking stone counter tops stands off through large opening from old home to new kitchen.

This big load bearing wall and old kitchen was removed and opened up old home to new kitchen, all partition walls between kitchen, dining and living room were gone and given a total open floor plan.

Replacing old carpet steps and wood rails with dark wood and cable yarn railing system bringing this home into new era.Entire first floor was now covered with wide plank exotic wood floors and a large scale porcelain tiles in kitchen floor.

The entire exterior was replaced with cement board red planks siding and contrasting flat panel of grey boards bordered in with chrome trim.

New front door, new Architectural shingles spruced up into 21st century home that they desired.

A wide flat Mahogany with vertical glass garage doors with very modern looking exterior lights made this home stand tall in this neighborhood.

Designers used cool glass backsplash tiles and extraordinary pendent lights just to create upscale and very different look for this project.

Furnished with ductless heating system and heated floors giving this family high level of comfort to through endless parties.
