Whole House Remodel
– Albany, OR –
A whole house remodel transformed the outdated layout of this early 1900s farm home to a modern floorplan with a brand new kitchen, dining area, master bedroom suite, and entry. This ranch style home sits on breathtaking acreage that overlooks mint fields and horse pastures. Over the years the home had become disjointed, with several not-so-well-thought-out additions.
MORE ABOUT THIS PROJECT
The new homeowners wanted to remodel the whole house to turn it into their dream home. They were hoping to make it more cohesive and functional for their lifestyle.
On the top of the homeowners’ wish list was a larger master suite with a separate shower and jetted tub. To accomplish this, we combined the existing master suite with two small existing bedrooms. This gave the homeowners a much larger and more luxurious bathroom, while leaving enough space in the master bedroom to have a cozy reading nook next to a see-through fireplace.
Every home needs an inviting front entry. The existing home’s facade lacked a focal point. Now, a gorgeous front door catches your eye and leads you into a spacious entry, where guests can shed coats and gather hugs.
Right next to the entry we added a powder room. The serene wall color picks up the border in the tile floor nicely. White wainscoting adds a crisp detail.
To take advantage of the beautiful views out the back, we removed a load-bearing wall and opened up the family room to the new dining room. The round column that divides the dining room and kitchen hides the 8×8 post that supports the load-bearing beams that run through the dining room and kitchen.
This dream kitchen is everything the homeowners hoped for. It is large enough for several cooks, has an abundance of natural light, and also features granite countertops, two concealed dishwashers, stainless steel appliances, enough space to store all sorts of kitchen gadgets, and a roomy walk-in pantry.
Not all art should be hung from the wall. Eye-catching pendant lights and a custom-built Sapele range hood add drama and character to this lovely kitchen.
If the kitchen is the heart of the home then this back entry is the brain of the home. This is the family’s control center. It has drawers, baskets, hooks, and shelves to keep things organized. Bills, phone messages, and a well-used calendar will soon grace this area.
