2016 Tour: Bella Custom Homes
Age of the home: Built in 1926
Type of remodel: Extensive addition + transformation of existing spaces into a better layout
Remodeling timeline: 10 months
Challenges: Replacing damaged framing + shoring the foundation by digging down 16 inches lower than the existing basement.
After: A generous addition at the back of the home includes a mudroom, powder bath, living room, and expanded kitchen on the main level; laundry room and master suite on the second floor; and a living room in the lower level. Existing rooms were reconfigured into a better layout.
Unique elements: A luxurious marble mosaic master shower and bath; custom baseboards were recreated to match the character of the 90-year-old English cottage. The whole remodel was a seamless blend between old and new so that you can’t distinguish one from the other.
