Project Description

Home Builders Association of Charlotte
Excellence In Remodeling 2010 – Silver Award Winner
Whole House – 160 ~ 280K

The designer developed a plan that maintained the existing house footprint while adding a second floor. The client wanted additional room to accommodate a young and growing family. In order to enhance the curb appeal while blending with the surrounding homes, the designer modified the traditional front facade to a craftsman style. Creative use of existing structure enabled major change in the feel and flow of the first floor without incurring some of the high cost frequently associated with such a major remodeling project.

The master bedroom was enlarged by removal of two existing closets and conversion of the flat ceiling to vaulted design. The vaulted section fit neatly into the unaffected area of the existing attic space. By utilizing the area of one bedroom, a new enlarged master bath and walk-in closet was gained. The bath features a Garden tub and Walk-in shower and a private Toilet room.

Space was gained by the conversion of another downstairs Bedroom into an Office, Closet, a more open Front entry, and a new set of Stairs to access the second floor. Upstairs added rooms consisted of two new Bedrooms, a Laundry, a Playroom, and a Media room. The two new Bedrooms featured a Jack and Jill Bath between them and added Walk-in storage. The upstairs new heated area is 900 square feet.

First floor common areas comprising the Living room, Kitchen, and Sunroom were opened up to improve the flow. The existing Living Room was converted into a Game Room with a double-sided gas fireplace separating it from the Family Room/Kitchen area. A large existing fireplace and brick dividing wall was removed. An island was added to the existing Kitchen and the cabinets and counters were replaced and new appliances added. The renovated area was approximately 660 square feet.
