2015 Tour: Detail Design + Build
Age of the home: 59 years
Type of remodel: Whole-house remodel
Remodeling timeline: 10 months
Remodeling budget: $900,000
Before: Closed-off rooms, poor traffic flow, outdated interior.
Challenges: A portion of the roof was vaulted, creating engineering obstacles. Issues were solved by adding footings, beams, and continuous posts from the ridgeline to the basement.
Unique elements: The powder room with aqua floral paper on the ceiling and faux wood wallpaper evokes a 1950s vibe. It’s a fun, playful room in an otherwise sophisticated home, adding just the right amount of flair.
After: The 6,300-square-foot rambler is open and airy without feeling cavernous. It has more light, color, and character than before, with a floor plan perfect for entertaining.
