Progress continues at the bungalow remodel for our client, Anne. So much has happened!
Tod Phillips, with Wood Specialty Construction, has been hard at work.
Both the front and back porches have been removed and have new footings poured. New window placement has been framed all around the house and the old siding has been removed. The house is now wrapped with a hydro-tec barrier. The rear of the home is being prepped for the addition off the back.
On the inside, the new walls are framed, and some of the original details worth saving have been removed for safe-keeping.
As 2015 moves forward, we look forward to seeing the transformation continue.
The most perfect yard sign ever created. A big thank you and hats off to Tod Philips, the general contractor, who took it upon himself to create such a work of art (his sign is on the left, ours on the right). The roof pitch of the sign even has the same roof pitch of the bungalow. What attention to detail!
Instead of two smaller windows in the upper bedrooms, we collectively decided to have one larger window. Its may seem trivial but it will allow for more unobstructed light and bring down the cost of construction. The chimney, while no longer functioning, is an important design element that is being preserved. It’s style and small details are classic bungalow features that add to the charm of the home.
Back of the home will be extended into the back yard. A larger kitchena nd a larger master bedroom will each have access to the large, covered back porch.
Looking from the front door through to the back of the future kitchen extension.
Original built-in cabinets flanked either side of the fireplace. By removing them to preserve the antique leaded glass, it also offers the opportunity to repair and restore the chimney while reframing in the new window openings.
