Originally built in 1962 this small ranch house has never been updated, retaining its original finishes. The choppy plan and outmoded kitchen and bathrooms don’t fit the lifestyle of its new owners. Low ceilings and small windows make the space seem dark and cramped.
The removal of two interior walls and a tiny 60 square foot increase in interior space will yield a large open great room with kitchen and dining and a newly vaulted ceiling as well as a second living space. A redistribution of interior space will use wasted space to create a more spacious master-bath, laundry space and well appointed guest bathroom. Additional plans to update insulation and replace leaky windows will create better environmental control. The removal of a patio cover and adding a larger glass door to the back yard as well as a larger window over the sink will bring light into the great room from 2 sides.
