SUSTAINABLE + NATIVE LANDSCAPE PLANS

Landscape will be ecological and sustainable native plants with a touch of modern farmhouse style. The massing of perennials and grasses with a mix of natural fieldstone and bluestone hardscape will complete the vision. Low voltage lighting will compliment the extension of the inside to out.

  

Front Door + Living Room

Rounded Archways and the Craftsman wood detailing are big features in this home. All architectural details will be kept, reinforced and restored. 






 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kitchen Makeover: 

Kitchen will be Farmhouse with a touch of Shaker Industrial. European exposed open shelving will be combined with base cabinets topped with soapstone. We are going to create an open space by removing a wall and adding a split counter top with bar seating and industrial pendant lights.







 

 

 

 

 


















 

 

 

 

 

 

Upstairs Bathroom Makeover:

The Bathroom will be designed with Carerra marble and a seamless glass shower. Completing the space will be a Mid-Century media cabinet converted to a vanity topped with a trough sink.




 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Upstairs Bedrooms:
















Freaky built-ins drawers were removed in order to make room to remove the ceiling joists and cathedral the ceiling downstairs.



Reclaiming Space:

The brown door concealed stairs going to the attic. They will be replaced with pull down stairs to give the bedroom on the left some breathing room.
