Sometimes you fall so in love with a house (despite its drawbacks) it becomes a lifelong labor of love, and that’s exactly what happened with our client up in Ponder.
The Kitchen of Their Dreams
We’ve been working with them for two decades to build their house up piece by piece into the home of their dreams, so we were understandably excited when they were ready to take things to the next level and make some serious changes to the interior.
We began with the kitchen. Though we had done some work on the kitchen several years ago to add new beautiful cabinets, it was time to complete the job. With the addition of new appliances and a massive farmhouse sink with a new faucet, the kitchen entered the modern era and gave the owners the high-tech equipment they need to make cooking a breeze.
But we didn’t stop there: we added black leather granite countertops—a smoother, subtler form of granite that drinks in light and makes for an easy clean while contrasting perfectly with the lighter cabinets.
Finally, we added LED lights and light gray wood-look porcelain tiles to smooth out the feel of the kitchen and give it a softer appearance (while saving money on electricity).
Two Living Areas Are Better Than One
In most houses, a small living room is pretty hard to fix, but we found a solution that pleased our clients and gave them the space they need for any activity they can imagine.
We converted the existing garage into an additional living area, complete with that same wood-look porcelain tile flooring they loved so much in the kitchen.
The addition of cedar beams in the ceiling wasn’t accidental—cedar was used throughout the entire home on the trim and baseboards. Those same touches of cedar can be found throughout the house, even on the new doors (which are filled with satin glass) and in the revamped living room (which also features the wood-look porcelain flooring).
To keep the converted garage from feeling walled in, we opened up the space between the kitchen and the new living area (which had previously gone through a series of small doors), creating a breezy flow between all three spaces.
We replaced the windows in the new living area and added a new patio door and new windows to the living room, and even one of the smaller baths got the Kraft treatment—we added a new vanity with that same leather granite in steel gray.
A Roof to Last
The final touches were all exterior. We replaced the original roof with a standing seam metal roof, replaced all the front-facing windows, and replaced the stone around those same windows.
Finally, we replaced the front door to match the makeover of the interior, and we added four stone columns to match the windows.
