The must-haves included an open floor plan, ample windows, first floor guest suite, children’s play area, a luxury master bath, outdoor living/entertainment space, an indoor plunge pool with adjacent sauna, and all within the context of “I don’t want to lose to classic red brick colonial.”
The challenge of the typical colonial layout is the small multiple room arrangement conversion to open floor plan. It’s like playing Jenga with a home when sliding steel beams into existing floor joists to hold up floors and roof above. The need for an addition easily solved the tasks of ample windows, large family room, and luxury master bath. The room addition above the garage conveniently became the kids’ playroom by lifting the roof pitch slightly and adding dormers to three sides.
The finished result of this whole home remodel provides over 4000sf of modern amenities packed into a classic styled colonial that feels like it never left the street it grew up on.
