This home was built in the 1920’s it had good bones. It had a confusing backwards kitchen and had an addition in the ’70’s. I had looked at the home for a friend a few years earlier and had discouraged her from purchasing it because “It needed a lot of work”.
The family was growing and they wanted a modern master bedroom addition. This project included changing the kitchen location, updated electrical feed, replacing and adding commercial windows and doors, a large addition, and changing a bedroom into a bathroom.
Reorient the kitchen, remove a bearing wall and open the kitchen to the living room. Create a master bedroom suite. Update the home into a very modern look and blend the styles together.
The client worked with an architect that I recommended to create a workable plan. There were unexpected delays in getting a permit due to a undersized corner lot. Much time was wasted waiting for permissions and meetings.
