To make this 1940s home in Silver Spring more functional for its owners, we designed and built one large addition for a new kitchen, two smaller additions, and transformed the garage into a living space.
“I was most satisfied with how they were willing to do walk through with us and make changes mid-course. When something was clearly not heading in the direction that we wanted they worked with us to make it more of what we wanted. We are amazed that we got in on time with the holiday season and it has been a very positive relationship.”–The Clients/Homeowners
To make this 1940s home in Silver Spring more functional for its owners, we designed and built one large addition, two smaller additions, and transformed the garage into living space.
The largest addition, approximately 16-foot by 18-foot, was on the side of the house and allowed us to create a beautiful new kitchen with an island that is open to the new mudroom (in the original kitchen space), and the dining area.
Upstairs, a small bump out on the front exterior allowed us to create a more spacious study/office for the homeowners.
We also updated the master bedroom and hall bath on the upper level—both with new vanities, faucets, sinks, shower/tub, tile, and flooring.
A small dormer in the attic allowed us to create a small area that serves as an extra bedroom for the couple’s sons when they are visiting.
To create another bedroom in the basement, the owners opted to give up their garage and convert it into a bedroom and bathroom.
