With an entire house Home addition renovation, it’s vital to stay focused on the big picture, even when seemingly small decisions are being made. This family wished to transform a cramped, outdated home into one filled with natural light, openness, and modern amenities, with both indoor and outdoor space in which to connect, dine, and entertain. We gutted virtually every section of the house, reframing walls, constructing a new stairwell, building a new bathroom and kitchen, and converting their screened porch at the front into a cozy breakfast nook. We also added a two-story addition to the rear of the house, including a rec room for everyone to enjoy. Final touches included a bay window plus second-story and ground-level decks, ideal for enjoying their sunlit, natural surroundings.
