Two Story Addition- NARI Tour Home 2014

After having to cancel our tour last year due to the large tree that had fallen on it, we were ecstatic to be showing the addition project this year at the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (Madison Chapter) Tour of Remodeled Homes!

The tour home featured a two story addition and was a whole house remodel. The addition houses a master suite on the second floor, a bright and open family room with adjacent mud room and powder bath on the first floor, and a full height music room on the basement level.

The homeowners wanted a design that offered high contrast, modern elements, and a restored historical interior. The house previously had ranch trim and slab doors, which were not original to the house. We revamped all of the trims to be a higher profile, simple design. This both compliments the historical style while working with the client’s modern tastes. We refurbished two doors from the garage, then ordered new doors to match the style of these original two panel doors. Archways in the open concept great room give added character and architectural details. The new modern kitchen has tons of storage space and is much more functional.

The exterior features a MoistureShield deck which is not only sustainable but very low maintenance. It only requires the homeowners to pressure wash once per year. You can read more about our journey with the exterior of the home in our recent blog post Colonial Curb Appeal Project in Madison, WI.

Thanks to all who visited! We had the most visited tour site of 2014!

Contemporary Kitchen Remodel in Madison, WI

This contemporary kitchen remodel in Madison, WI was a huge transformation!

The homeowners were wishing for a open kitchen with the all the rooms integrated harmoniously with the rest of their house.  First of all, the home had a cramped kitchen. In addition, a formal dining room was being used as quasi office, and the sunroom was completely cutoff from the remainder of their house.  There was only one solution to creating more space and flow – we had to knock out walls.

We opened up the space and the room felt better right away.  The kitchen features mostly base cabinets under quartz counter tops. Portions of the counter form breakfast bar, facing the backyard, a bar sink and seating, and the main cooking space. The center wall cabinets hang in suspension away from the ceiling to maintain the open spacious feeling, by use of hidden brackets and rods.  We used cherry for wood of the base cabinets and maple for the walls. This choice gives a sense of dimension and complements the stone fireplace wall in the adjoining living room.
