Many times open floor plans that are popular
with today's lifestyles lack a sense of coziness and independent space.
That is certainly not the case on this remodeled 1950's ranch home.
This project is a good example of what our firm refers to as "creating
spaces within spaces".
The “empty nester” Clients wanted to
create spaces that were just as comfortable for the two of them as they
were when all of their children and grandchildren were over for their
frequent visits. We accomplished this by creating (2) octagonal shaped
Additions to the home. The smaller one created space for a comfortable
Eating Area off the remodeled and enlarged Kitchen; the larger addition
is a unique Family Room. A raised, wrap-around, fireplace hearth was
designed to allow plenty of overflow seating. The Family Room opens
back up to the Kitchen and Dining Room and each space is defined by the
use of different flooring and different ceiling treatments. The Lower
Level of the Addition includes a wraparound Bar area and a sunken Media
& Billiards Room. If the Lower Level looks familiar, you might have
seen it on the cover of a recent "Better Homes & Gardens" Basement
