This early 1900s long-term rental home got stripped to her studs and given a new lease on life. Significant reframing gave us new, strong bones to build on; early site work also included installation of a new furnace, water heater, roof, plumbing and electrical systems. All new kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, flooring, doors, windows and appliances filled out the inside. The outside got all new siding, new decks front and back, and a fresh coat of paint, bringing this vintage beauty back to her rightful state.
We added a gas fireplace in the living room with a tile hearth, custom tile & rail surround, mantel, and flanking bookcases in the original Craftsman style. We also designed to include the modern, making space for the client’s 42” wall mounted television.
In the entry, we reworked the original built-in bench and staircase, renewing the railing, columns, and balusters. Behind the bench we discovered a surprise - a batch of postcards and letters dating from 1913!
We opened the kitchen floor plan and installed a 9ft Nana Wall folding glass exterior door to a new backyard deck with cable railing. A 9ft island wrapped in Montana beetle pine wood now stands center, surrounded by custom Huntwood cabinetry, new appliances and exposed beams.
A floor-to-ceiling tile job in an old closet space created a new master bathroom, completely revamped with a walk-in shower, rain can showerhead and floating vanity. The bathroom is brightened by a peek-a-boo territorial view, thanks to the installation of a new skylight. We remodeled a second bathroom off the main hall, then refinished the existing fir floors with an ebony stain.
