    • BEFORE: House Renovation Needed

      Before the extensive remodel, rugged stonework, dark wood, and an overhanging deck gave the house a brooding feel.

    • AFTER: Stylish Stucco Exterior

      Although it looks like a totally new structure, most of the house, including exterior walls and roof trusses, is original. A stucco finish gave the exterior the facelift it needed.

    • Remodeled Living Room

      Interior walls were removed to create an open floor plan, which features a gathering room divided into different seating areas. Removing stone from the walls and adding light maple floors in place of outdated patchwork carpet tiles brightened the space dramatically.

    • Updated Dining Room

      Removing an interior wall and adding windows and a door opened the dining room to treetop views from every angle. The designer turned a negative to a positive by wrapping an immovable support post with a maple buffet, creating a subtle division between the rooms.

    • BEFORE: Master Bedroom

      The homeowners saw potential in the dark, ordinary-looking bedroom.

    • AFTER: Modern Master Bedroom

      Bumping out a front wall increased the size of the master bedroom. Semi-opaque fiberglass panels topped by large operable glass windows provide privacy yet fill the room with light. The low-to-the-floor panels offer better insulation than conventional windows. An updated fireplace adds to the modern look.

    • BEFORE: Floor plan

      Homeowners worked with an architect and designer to add on to and improve existing space.

    • AFTER: Floor plan

      By removing interior walls and refinishing dingy exteriors, the designer and architect created a home filled with light and space for the homeowners to be together. Formerly dated features are now cutting-edge modern, and the home's layout is perfect for appreciating its natural surroundings.
