We were excited and honored when our good friends reached out to us for help renovating their newly purchased home. This home, previously owned by their mother, needed some updating and they wanted to add their own personality to the space. With design help from Stoll’s Woodworking and Whimsey Interiors, we were able to create a clean, beautiful, and contemporary space that still honored the colonial style of the original salt-box home. Numerous updates were done, including a completely new kitchen and main floor bathroom and laundry room. Some extra special elements were added, such as a herringbone accent wall in the living room, a reclaimed barn beam over the fireplace, and a hidden door entry into the laundry from the kitchen. All of these updates helped make the space work for this next generation in the family home.
We remodeled much of this home several years ago. However, the back porch and patio area had not been addressed during the previous remodel and was in serious need of updates and improvements.
The existing porch spanned 3 different levels, with a dilapidated wood-framed deck, a failing brick patio area, and then a concrete apron around the pool. And, while there was an outdoor dining space on the deck outside of the kitchen, there was no shelter from the sun so in the hottest part of the days, the space was not very functional.
The details and work on this porch represent a great cross-section of the work of our team and we are proud to continue to play a part in rehabbing and reshaping this historic Bloomington home.
Our clients recently purchased their home in order to be closer to children and grandchildren. A tasteful one-level layout allows the homeowners to age-in-place with close access to amenities and family. Springpoint Architects and LWB were enlisted to modernize and expand the kitchen footprint.
