2008 SAM AWARDS FINALIST
BEST HOME RENOVATION WITHOUT AN ADDITION
This beautiful house is situated in Pumphill Estates and was in need of a complete update. When you walked in the front door you could not see through to the living area and the clients wish was to be able to create the ambiance of welcoming you into their home. The oak paneling was removed from the great room and an opening created to the front foyer giving an open plan concept. The original quartz stone was kept on the fireplace chase and a two-sided gas insert was placed in the opening which visually helped connect the two spaces while creating an elegant modern design. This house was designed for entertaining with a gorgeous kitchen and adjoining walk through butler's pantry connecting the dining room. The original cedar ceiling in the dining room was freshened up and kept; when designing a renovation I like to always try and find elements keeping the old and blending it with new.
