After more than 15 years in their home, it was time for an upgrade. The homeowners loved the area where they lived and the unique, fabulous view it provided. Their trees were maturing beautifully, and recent landscaping improvements provided cherished outdoor living space.
Although the owners had designed and built this to be the home of their dreams, those dreams changed over time. It all began with a discussion about “flipping the kitchen and dining room” in order to create one grand, yet cozy living space that encouraged togetherness, for either small or large gatherings. That discussion evolved into a more significant remodel that surpassed their expectations.
Relocating the two primary rooms, kitchen and dining, afforded the opportunity to re-imagine other supporting spaces. A new walk-in pantry was added and the laundry, mud, and powder room areas were completely redefined. Additional finishing touches were added to the living/family room area, including removing a corner fireplace and building a new, larger fireplace in the center of the room surrounded by Showplace bookcase units.
In the end, the owners got a lodge-inspired space that made them fall in love with their home all over again.
