A Whole House Renovation

Several years ago, I designed an extensive expansion and renovation to a lackluster ranch house in a fantastic old neighborhood. One of the images that has been "pinned" most to Pinterest from this site is the schematic drawing of that house. (The original post is HERE.) Thought it was way past time to share some actual photos!

A little "before and after" of the front. The house went from 1600 square feet to nearly 5,000.
A close up of the new entrance. Wide front steps, gable end trusses, and large columns with bracketed details create a sense of arrival.
One of the original bedrooms became the formal dining room, with tall wainscoting and coffered ceiling.
A new master suite was added at the rear of the house. The bedroom features another coffered ceiling.
The new master bathroom.
The new stair hall overlooks the back yard.
A large vaulted living space on the second floor separates the two children's suites.
The owner's son enjoys this spacious vaulted bedroom.
While their daughter's room is Princess-perfect with a double tray ceiling.
Another suite is tucked under the roof over the added garage. Interesting ceiling lines give it a lot of character.
A large covered porch with stone fireplace expands the main level living area into the outdoors.
This view of the rear highlights the challenging slopes the project presented. The alley-entry garage is actually a half story above the main level of the house.
A final shot of the new front. The beautiful landscaping finishes everything off.
