Second Story Addition and Remodel:
The original structure here was built in 1895. As the project progressed we discovered that there had been five additions to the original. This brought many challenges with it such as matching older lumber sizes and structural issues. The second story added three bedrooms and two full baths. We used many recycled building materials such as the wood flooring throughout the upstairs, kitchen cabinets, doors and some specialty stained glass. The home was a feature in the Odom's Reusable Building Materials tour for two years and was also featured in the Traverse City Record Eagle's Northern Living section July 11, 2004.
Lake Home Addition:
This whole house remodel involved almost every part of the home. A family room with beautiful lake view, stone fireplace and bay window was added. The garage went from one to two doors with a large bonus room above as well as two storage closets. A new kitchen with quartz counter tops, two ovens and a Jenn-Aire gas cooktop completed the upgrade in that area and the basement was extended to add a full bath.
Dormer and Bathroom Addition - Matching Log Home Style and Feel:
Two dormers were added to this log home creating a large loft are with two walk in closets, a full bath and a cozy sitting area. It dramatically opened up the interior and gives an open and inviting feel while maintaining the exterior's original character.
Newly Designed and Defined Entryway:
Here we added a new front entry door system and created the open entry area with exposed beams to give this home a more welcome and inviting curb appeal.
Kitchen remodels are one of our favorites. This is the most popular area of the home to update and upgrade. The kitchen/dining area is the main gathering place for family and entertaining. An open design and floor plan make it friendly and inviting.
