Added Space with Rustic Charm
Added Space with Rustic Charm
The Family Room Addition extended the house by 12' and included a full height staked stone fireplace, a larger gathering space, and a new stairwell to the converted crawlspace. This remodel also included removing a long hallway that sectioned off the dining room from the of the house. The covered deck off the kitchen was enclosed to create a new breakfast room which features 2 skylights and many windows that take in views of the backyard. New rustic hickory flooring was installed throughout the main floor and used on the stair treads. Custom oak handrails and newel posts at both staircases were stained to match the new hickory floors. A new bonus room, bathroom and gym were created in the former crawl space, which was tall enough to accommodate these rooms without many changes to the structure.

New Basement Bonus Rooms
The home had a generous crawlspace will full standing clearance. The homeowners approached our team on way to capture it as a bonus room with an attached gym and bathroom. With two growing boys, this would be a perfect space to watch movies, play video games, play instruments and workout.
Rustic Entry Staircase
New custom-made oak handrails, stair treads, and newel posts were stained and installed by our in house finish carpenters. This upgrade to the main entry stairs adds rustic and modern touches to go along with the remodel.
The scale of the family room addition called for a beautiful accent wall. Our Designer, Sarah, achieved this with a full height fireplace and accent paint color to contrast the stone work. The stacked stone and rustic wood mantel help this grand space feel cozy.
The cream and brown stacked stone fireplace extends to the peak of the vaulted ceiling and meets a new structural beam, which was lifted into place using lots of heavy machinery. Once installed, the beam was wrapped in hickory to match the new hardwood flooring.
What our Clients are Saying
“I’ve had major renovations done on four houses, including a 100 year old 3-story townhouse in Chicago, this has been by far the best and smoothest remodel experience in my life”
David Fiske and Valerie Lau, CorvallisSee the Asian Themed Mid-Century Remodel project
“We felt our ideas were listened to, incorporated, and enhanced in the final plans. Elizabeth did a nice job adding architectural interest with the arch above the stove and continuing that feature in the new opening connecting the living room to dining space. Eliminating the wall between dining room & kitchen allowed for a much better flow addressing our desire for a more spacious-looking interior without adding additional space. The hot tub cover is a special feature that enhances our ability to use it daily. And creating a space for the washer/dryer in the house instead of the garage was a real win. ”
