Craftsman Bungalow Renovation


http://heirloomdesignbuild.com/current-project-portfolio/renovations-additions-construction/case-study-4-east-lake-renovation/
This 1920s Craftsman bungalow was converted into a duplex at some point during the 1960s. Over the years, the very cool architectural details of the house had fallen into disrepair. The pillars and columns were crooked, the concrete porch was cracked, and the wood was rotting from years of neglect.
Heirloom Design Build’s goal was to restore the home’s original charm. In addition, we wanted to add the comfort and convenience of the 21st century to the home’s interior, while retaining the historical character of the home’s exterior. We spent a good portion of this project deconstructing the changes to the home and recreating the original single-family layout.
To ensure the best outcome, we used top-quality building materials—the kind that are usually found in much larger and more expensive home renovations—while keeping the house’s footprint small and it’s design tasteful and in keeping with the look of the neighborhood. Modern improvements included the vaulting of the ceilings, the exposing of brick chimneys, and the installation of Carrera marble, recycled hardwood flooring, custom cabinetry, and beautiful light fixtures throughout the home.
We also added new landscaping and hardscaping to the home's front and back yard, including a new stone patio with a built-in barbeque pit--a perfect spot for entertaining!
Some of the high performance features include a high efficiency HVAC system, and all paints and sealants used were were non-VOC, ensuring better air quality for the home’s future residents.
