Things have been so busy the website was left behind, but I am going to start posting a bunch of projects that have been completed since the last post. Keep visiting for more updates!
This house started off as a small mill house close to the Five Points area but has now taken on a new form as a two story, 3,100 SF house with a modern curb appeal.
Love this project! The owner came to me with the need for more space. Let’s more than double the existing SF, update the curb appeal from the street and keep the form of the overall house in context with this side of Barmetler. Ok ready, set, go!
This house is very charming and holds a fascinating secret. There are three floors to this house, but who would know from the street view! An active family of five lives here and needed a little more space to live in. With a little reconfiguration here and a little bump out there, their home was able to adapt to their changing life styles.
It has been a super busy year already at Pell St Studio as you could probably guess from the radio silence on the website. A lot of projects have finished construction, several more are in the bidding phase, and even more are just starting in design. I will get these updated soon on the website, I promise!
New Road is a great place to start. This house has gone through a major transformation. When the house was originally constructed it was a small mill house which is fairly characteristic of this section of five points. It had been modified and added on to over its lifetime, so much so that it lost any sense of its original aesthetic and characteristics. The new owner came to PELL ST studio looking to breath new life into the house and create an aesthetic that was more modern, but didn’t overwhelm the street and it’s neighbors.
What could be a better present than a brand new house ready for move in! The moving vans will pull up to the house next week. The owners and I have been working on this house for exactly a year. We wanted to make sure to give a nod to the existing styles of architecture throughout downtown Knightdale with a little bit of a modern twist. Large wrap around porches surround most of the residence to easily open the interior up to the outside as well as a large screen porch at the rear of the house designed and oriented to maximize the views of the wooded back yard. The downstairs floor plan was created for entertaining and the upstairs was designed for relaxing. Every inch of the house, especially downstairs was designed with areas for storage in mind (both displayed and hidden). Storage and light were the two top priorities for the owners.
