When the owners of this classic 1910 Foursquare engaged us to design and build a remodel, they were close to selling and moving on. Undeterred, our design-build team came up with a thoughtful plan that offered the modern livability they craved while respecting its historical character.
We built a rear addition for a first-floor master suite, powder room, and kitchen with a walk-out basement. Its hipped roof mirrors the main house’s roof, and fits just under a second-story window. We also built a new screened-in porch and large deck, and we opened the kitchen to the remodeled family room.
Custom-built columns and casework concealed a structural beam. Shaker-style cabinets in both master bath and kitchen were topped with Cambria quartz countertops. The latter’s two-toned treatment added visual interest and texture.
