Grant Residence Addition

Oct 2015

The Owner purchased this 1800's home from another family member and needed to update it to suite the needs of a modern family and differing uses. Respecting the historic character of the home, a 1970's single story addition was removed and replaced with a 2 story addition to replace the first floor family room, enlarge the deck, and provide a master bedroom onsuite bathroom and dressing room as well as additional bathroom for another bedroom and a second floor laundry room. In the existing stone house, the kitchen was gutted and enlarged to include part of the former front porch, a hallway on the second floor removed to enlarge a bedroom and stairs reconfigured to the third floor, and the ceiling of the master bedroom removed to provide a vaulted ceiling and new windows overlooking the wooded rear yard added.

Skillman Residence Addition

Aug 2014

This 1800's farm house lacked a master bedroom suite, office space, and a good indoor/outdoor dining experience that took advantage of the beautiful country view on southern side of the home. There are two separate additions to the home connected by an exterior porch covered with a pergola. The addition to the left houses an indoor/outdoor dining area with a second floor deck off of one of the bedrooms. The 2 story addition to the right houses a new home office with a master bedroom above. The master bedroom connects to the prior master bedroom, providing a full suite that includes bathroom, private TV room, walk in closets and bedroom wth vaulted ceiling and well shaded wall of windows. Green features include low VOC wood stain, sustainably harvest wood flooring, extensive daylighting, solar electric system to offset all power usage of the addition, and natural ventilation.

Upper Black Eddy Residence

Jul 2013

This young couple purchased an older home dating back to the mid 1700's originally on 10 acres in this beautiful location. The original design was to more than double the size of the home. Due to budget constraints, the project was scaled back to weather proof and renovate the existing building and remove and replace a poorly built second floor addition. A new kitchen, master bedroom, refinised flooring, pantry, roof and insulation were completed as part of the initial phase. The couple intends to proceed with the larger addition as their family grows and cash flow permits. The larger addition will provide a 2 story family room with library, enlarged dining room, re-oriented foyer and new sitting room, second floor master bedroom suite & deck.

Augustine Residence Renovation

Sep 2012

This existing 1970's contemporary house needed a facelift and interior renovations to suite the needs of its new Owners, whose taste for oriental culture is reflected in this amazing home makeover. The exterior was repainted and had wood trim and accent screens added to give it an oriental feel. The exterior entrance was relocated from the corner of the home to the interior courtyard and small touches such as a new gate, exterior lighting, and landscaping complete the transformation on the exterior. On the interior, the kitchen cabinets and appliances were replaced, a new study created, a new staircase to the walk-out basement created, bedroom converted to an office with custom soji screens to allow it to open to the interior courtyard, and a complete redesign of the master bedroom to provide a master bath and walk in closet.
