After working with the Mooney family in 2014 on a deck addition, they decided to work with us again on their extensive addition/remodel of a neighboring house that would become their full-time residence. We were able to transform a dilapidated 1200 sq ft 2 bed 1 bath 60's ranch style home into a beautiful updated 4 bed 3 1/2 bath dream home. We worked with the architect and the family to create an extremely personal and custom home.
By removing the existing gable roof and 50% of the existing walls we were able to completely transform the old house. We raised the ceiling heights, relocated the kitchen and entryway, added custom cabinetry throughout, updated all the windows, and updated all the surfaces in the house. We added 1200 sq ft of heated and cooled space off the back of the house in which we incorporated a nice covered screened in courtyard dividing the old and the new space. The addition consisted of a master suite, a third kids bedroom/bathroom, and a larger living room area. The screened courtyard connects the main living room and the master suite for a fluid indoor and outdoor lifestyle. This patio is equipped with a seating area, fireplace, dining area, and kids reading loft.
The public areas of the home all flow seamlessly from one to the next. These areas feel very open to each other, yet there is a defined intimacy to each, unlike many popular open floor plan styles today. The consistent black and white color scheme unifies the whole house and connects each room. We used the same black brick and cypress siding throughout both the exterior and interior of the house to help connect the outdoors with the indoors.
