This existing single story home had a small, outdated kitchen and a single bathroom that didn’t reflect the style of the new owners. At first, the project focused on improving the kitchen and creating a bathroom that felt truly theirs. With a baby on the way, the need for more functional space and a place to host grandparents became even more important. At the same time, the identification of serious waterproofing issues on the south side of the building necessitated shifting and expanding the budget for roofing to include new windows, additional doors and a complete reworking of the failing waterproofing layers.
Working with the clients to deliver a high quality aesthetic while minimizing cost on items that weren’t important to them freed up budget for the necessary repairs and delivered an insulated roof and wall system for their growing family.
The waterproofing was done just in time for the beginning of a rainy fall and winter. The house is now ready for the elements, a future upgrade to a mini-split heat pump system and visits from grandparents near and far.
