Our Solution


We expanded the kitchen and breakfast room toward the back of the property to receive more natural light and offer a view of our clients' lovely garden and new patio.

The laundry room was moved from the basement to the main level pantry off the kitchen, and designed to offer easier access and a bright, efficient room. Custom cabinetry allowed us to make the washer and dryer invisible in this tiny space.

We converted the second floor guest bedroom into a library and office by adding tailor-made wall-to-wall bookshelves.

Floor-to-ceiling bookshelves with brass library lighting were added to the upstairs hall by maximizing a somewhat awkward landing. We treated them with the same deep-colored high gloss paint finish as the library, expanding its capacity and connecting the spaces with French doors.

A pretty custom built-in daybed with integral side tables and extra storage were added to the guest bedroom.

The large shed dormer and gabled roof space above the new kitchen were transformed into a new guest bedroom and private bath.

We built out a new front dormer to create a cozy sitting room and extra privacy for the master bedroom.

New master closets were created by using space from the new front gable and existing gable.
