Remodelers Showcase

Parade of Homes Tour

Since we can’t share all about this project over the parade weekend we wanted to share all we could here instead!  We are going to post some stories and background on this project over the next few weeks that we hope you enjoy! 

Our Family 

We met these homeowners 7 years ago when they were looking to remodel a different home they were in.  The house was near Hwy 62 and despite considering a large project the house still wouldn’t really get them what they were looking for.  So they decided to look for a different home. 7 years later they found it!  

The Home

Our usual whole house remodel involves gutting major spaces and adding to the footprint.  The house had gone through a significant remodel in the early 2000’s and they did a really nice job. They used high quality cabinetry and created a really nice layout and overall flow.  So the main objective was to change the look and feel of the spaces and tweak the function to better fit our families needs.  

  

Design

The homeowners kept saying when we walked through the first time they really wanted to make it their own.  They didn’t mind the natural woodwork but really wanted to update and refresh the space. The challenge was to transform the space on a major scale while incorporating existing finishes that were going to be left.  We debated how much of the cabinetry to paint and since we were leaving much of the trim work we decided to paint all the cabinets.  

  

Build

This project was very smooth from start to finish.  It took about 8 weeks to complete. We order nearly all the products in the early production stage to avoid delays.  We also weren’t sold on the pendant light we originally chose so this gave us time to look at the ones we ordered and ultimately swap them out since they weren’t the right fit for the space.  We went with the gold liner and gold hardware to tie in with the gold in the existing granite.  

Settling In

This home is filled with soft grays and linens but don’t let that fool you!  The rugs are indoor/outdoor along with the drapes and the fabrics are all stain resistant.  With 4 boys and a new puppy the house had to be livable and comfortable! They hosted a wedding shower a few weeks after we finished and the house was put to the test. The party was a success and there have been many family dinners since!
