Additions and Remodeling
Front before remodeling
This particular project was both a remodel and an addition. Along with the interior remodeling, two new porches were added to help define the entries and provide shelter. Note the new window in the upstairs which we found had been framed in the original construction but covered over..

Now the family has a place that now only greets company but provides an outdoor space for family and friends to relax.
Kitchen before remodeling
This 1930’s kitchen was ready for an update. Not only was it very worn and outdated but it was cramped and awkward. This was built in the era when the kitchen was to be blocked from sight. Only a solid swinging door connected it to the rest of the house. By removing several walls and opening it up to the dining room, we were able to increase the space four fold and create an inviting, spacious new kitchen.
Kitchen after remodeling
Notice the wall to the left where the refrigerator once stood is gone and the kitchen is open to the dining room. It’s hard to imagine how this beautiful kitchen used to look. The space this kitchen now occupies was an old pantry and part of the old back porch. Not only did we gain a huge new kitchen, but also a large butler’s pantry with a second refrigerator, work desk and storage pantry.

Converting your Dining Room
Do you find you are using your dining room twice a year and the rest of the time it sits unused and gathering dust? Consider converting it into another use such as an office of game room (billiards)? Or if you still need the occassional dining room, consider using it temporarily for another use so it’s still ready to serve as a dining room when you need it.
