The Assignment: Expand and renovate a 1950s home as an “urbane farmhouse”, with special emphasis on designing for entertaining and family gatherings. 

Currently: Exterior work is taking shape with painting in progress. On the interior, drywall is up and interior finishes are well underway, including tile, hardwood flooring, and finish carpentry. Cabinet shop drawings, excluding closets, have been approved. Closets are next up to be reviewed.

Standout Details: Colorful architectural interiors with tile and custom millwork designs throughout (including full-height paneling at the walls); a new vaulted stair foyer tucked under the 1.5-story roofline and an inventive fluted stair apron.

Sustainable Features: Thermal insulation, natural ventilation, efficient heating systems, tankless water heaters, energy-efficient appliances, pool solar heat and PV solar panels, EV charging stations, permeable hardscape and rain barrels are intended.
