Featured on the 2018 Cool House Tour.
Complete remodel of an existing 1950’s ranch home included a newly framed roof on a steeper pitch to accommodate 2nd storey spaces and utilities, garage/laundry/master closet/front porch addition, and demolition of existing walls down to the studs.
The new siding is Hardie board and wood batten throughout for a simple and classic farmhouse look.
Living room ceiling height was increased to 12 feet with a shed dormer roof, which also allowed room for clerestory windows above.
The 12 foot ceiling carries over to the new kitchen.
Classic materials and fixtures are used throughout the kitchen.
The new small powder room utilizes fun finishes and fixtures, such as the concrete tile covering all the walls.
Floor to ceiling bookcase forms a backdrop to the trestle dining table fabricated from reclaimed white oak.
A built-in desk is adjacent to the bookcase in the dining room.
Pantry storage is maximized with a wall of cabinets. Glass-front middle cabinets help to anchor and organize the storage.
View out to front porch from living.
The master bedroom ceiling was raised to 9 feet.
Photovoltaic panels take advantage of the south orientation and plentiful roof surface.
Photovoltaic panels are arranged to fit the roof.
The house presents a friendly face to the street with the front porch.
