Medford

This project was for the addition and expansion of a very small, existing log cabin structure in a log community. The client’s original structure was a mere 896 square feet. The design challenge was to increase the space within the limits of the 20-foot wide lake-front site to update the structure for current day use. An additional 898 square feet was added with the interior spaces reconfigured to expand the dining room area with existing fireplace, add a new kitchen and gathering room at the rear of the home and to create a new master bedroom, bath and hall bath above the kitchen expansion. The home’s original staircase was similar to a ship’s ladder and needed a completely new design. The original 800 feet of existing space was reconfigured to include a living room, powder room, closet and mechanical room. The new kitchen/gathering room area was stepped down approximately 12″ to gain greater height for the spaces. The design retains the log home’s “authentic” look, maintains the roof line and works with melding the existing log work with the new construction.

This 1800’s era Victorian styled home’s original space was 3,404 square feet. An additional 1,056 square feet was added during the expansion/alteration process. The area above the expanded dining room increased the size of the master bedroom. The existing kitchen space was maintained as the working kitchen area. A morning room and a family room with fireplace was added. A rear staircase was added from the first floor to the basement, as well as an elevator which was added from the basement to the first and second floors, to accommodate special family members’ needs. Some exterior work was also completed including a new roof, an added back entry, a three-car attached garage and a revised landscape plan. Throughout, the Victorian flavor of the original home needed to be maintained.

For the renovation of this 4,800 square foot residence, extensive redesign of the master suite and bath was done. New details included a spacious walk-in shower, separate tub and commode room. A double-sided fireplace enhances the sitting room. The kitchen and breakfast area was completely redesigned to accommodate the owners’ pleasure in cooking and entertaining. Access to the kitchen from both the foyer and formal dining room was enhanced by archways with barrel-vaulted ceilings. A 13-foot center island with bar sink and snack level became the focal point of the kitchen’s work area. A commercial cooktop and multiple wall ovens were installed. A new pantry was included in the design, with the existing pantry space converted to a home elevator. Triple windows overlook the rear yard of the home.

Stone Harbor

We renovated this 47-year-old shore home to provide more space, updated amenities; also a fresh exterior made it stand out from the other homes in the general neighborhood. An existing seasonal sun porch at the front of the house was converted to an all-season sunroom. This opens to a brand new wrap-around porch which is partially screened and partially open. A new master suite was constructed above the porch additions, specifically positioned to capture the ocean view. An upper deck was added to the suite, along with a bath and closets. The renovation, along with the addition of new and updated spaces, transformed this dated ranch-style home into a gorgeous 2-story home with unique styling.
