Whole House Remodel: Sunroom, Kitchen, Family Room, Laundry, and Master Bedroom and Bath

This traditional 1950’s style ranch house was the boyhood home of the owner. He and his new bride love the neighborhood and wanted to update the home to serve their newly-blended family.

A charming, modernized kitchen, with an entirely reconfigured footprint, is ready for some four-star cooking! The new design includes a new pantry, a granite topped island, and Prairie-style alder cabinets with a laminate countertop and ceramic tile backsplash. All new appliances include a dual-fuel range and a built-in toaster box. The prefinished hardwood floor transitions from the kitchen to the sunroom dining area.

The sunroom, which was formerly built over an old deck, was removed and rebuilt. A wood stove and brick hearth were removed to make the family room comfortable for TV viewing and daily living. The vaulted ceiling was retained, new windows were added, beams were painted, and a display shelf added in the family room. The new laundry is conveniently accessible to both the master closet and family room. Due to a prior addition built two steps lower, the floors across the back rooms were raised to create a comfortable traffic flow pattern that is all on one level now.

In the more formal dining room, corner cabinets were removed to allow for better seating. The hardwood floors were refinished in the living room, dining room, hall and bedrooms. The master bedroom was enhanced with additional space and a master bath makeover. The bath was transformed with new white cabinets, a cultured marble countertop, a new ceramic tile floor and a new curb face on the shower. The new master bedroom walk-in closet has plenty of hanging space and several built-in and pullout shelves, as well as a large upper shelf for out-of-season clothing and other storage needs.

Exterior renovations include new siding and clad overhangs, and the placement of new windows on the back of the home. A grill deck was replaced on the side of the home and a deck stoop and steps were added to the new patio at the back of the house.

The electrical service was updated and a high-efficiency HVAC system was installed for safety, comfort, and cost savings.
