2012 in review: samples of our design-build remodeling

design-build remodeling examples in 2012Completing the full design-build renovation of our own home after a 2011 fire—and winning an award for it in December—is perhaps our most rewarding achievement of 2012.  There were several other design-build remodeling projects we are proud of, including an aging-in-place renovation (with a new addition) for two seniors, and an outdoor living space with a scenic countryside view.  Here are a few project snapshots…

Our full home design-build remodeling project

Learn more about this whole house renovation— with a new 900 sq. ft. great room addition—in a blog post announcing our 22nd award, the most recent of our several BAMP Housing Excellence Awards. See the step-by-step progress on this renovation in our photo documentation of the construction. BTW, achieving ‘Energy Star Qualified Home’ certification is also an award for our commitment to sustainability.

An aging-in-place project

With the region’s population aging—including Boomers and their parents—we were able to help two Washington County seniors stay in their own home for years to come by applying Universal Design principles for full handicap accessibility. The project included an addition with a master bath and bedroom and a new garage. (read more about this project)

Year round outdoor living space

The son of the seniors above lives nearby with his family. They wanted to be able to enjoy the wonderful views from their elevated patio year round. A now-covered patio room provides the family with a cozy, gazebo-like space—including a fireplace and large screen TV—with the western feel of the surrounding horse farms.

New kitchen & office addition

A full kitchen renovation and a small office addition enhanced traffic circulation and family togetherness in a classic Mt. Lebanon Tudor which was on the Festival of Homes tour in September.

Happy New Year to everyone!
