PortfolioOur projects range in size, budget, and scale from whole houses to screened porches, tiny bathrooms to newly constructed carriage houses. The focus throughout is compatibility with the original character of the existing structure, making sure that the old and new speak a common language.
Old North Durham Restoration
This bungalow was hiding under aluminum siding and had lost its way. We restored the front porch with period appropriate brackets and a new railing. A rear addition including a screen porch completes this renovation.
Markham Renovation + Addition
An ungainly master suite and awkward kitchen cut the living spaces off from the beautiful backyard on this 1920s bungalow. Touching every room on the first floor and adding a hangout space with fireplace to the rear, created a home made for entertaining.
Englewood Attic Conversion + Garage
The owner’s of this brick bungalow wanted to add a master suite in their unfinished attic. A new stairway was seamlessly tucked into the center hall and two new dormers were added for light and elbow room. A brand new freestanding garage sits along the alley, complementing the home’s lovely, original architecture.
Kitchen and Master Expansion in Duke ParkA 1970s enclosed porch off the rear of this little house was dingy, drafty, and a junk pile. Capturing that space into the kitchen and master made both rooms open and bright.
Forest Hills Kitchen + Screened PorchThe longtime owners of this sweet Tudor Revival had struggled with the original kitchen for decades. Opening it up to the backyard and enlarging it by just a few feet created a light, bright space to enjoy.
Sometimes it takes a whole new view to solve the problem – like the dark, tucked away kitchen in this 1950s home. Relocating it to the end of the long living/dining space and repurposing the kitchen into a mudroom made all the difference.
