The owners of this Colonial Revival inspired home deal with some of the typical issues of this type of house built in the 1980s: small, segmented rooms with limited function for gathering and entertaining, limited daylight, and dated fixtures and appliances. These were among the main concerns for this couple looking for a change. One of the most striking things about this house is their amazing backyard. Flourishing with native plantings and colorful birds, the backyard is quite a sight to behold. We based a lot of the new design elements on maximizing their experience of these elements in the backyard. We opened up the entire rear wall on the ground level with floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors. We also oriented some of the major functions of the kitchen so that the owners can see the outside as they cook or entertain. The owners will really be able to enjoy the fruits of their labor with new views to the garden. The major points of improvement in this project involve an open concept first floor, a complete kitchen overhaul, a new and improved upstairs master suite, and finally, a refurbished basement (aka “man cave”) with an added screened patio at the rear of the house.
