1960’s Home Remodeled to Enhance and Update its Original Personality

We recently completed a remodeling project in which we updated an entire home that was built in 1964.  This home had never been modernized since it was built, so it had a great personality reflective of the early 60’s.  Our goal was not to change the personality of the home, but to enhance its individuality through updating and enhancing.

Megan Lynch’s Kitchen Design Wins Two Awards

Watch out for this up-and-comer!  Our design consultant, Megan Lynch, designed a kitchen worthy of the customer's kudos and two design awards.

Along with winning the Prestigious ‘Shiloh Design Awards’ contest, this beautiful kitchen also took first place at the 2010 NARI remodeler’s award show in Kansas city.

Table transformation

Family history will be preserved in this kitchen makeover. Sally and Don raised their children around this maple butcher block table.

We have planned a new kitchen island that will utilize this modified and renewed table as the new island counter.

Not only are we restoring a piece of family history, but we're also recycling lumber.

A family that runs together

The Allmon Family (Debby in the Schloegel shirt in the middle, Mike, Mary and Robert) participated in the annual Amy Thompson Run on Memorial Day in Loose Park. This year, the Jake Clough Headstrong Foundation was there to properly fit and distribute bike helmets for kits – Robert Allmon is proudly showing his new one in this photo!  It was a beautiful day for a run, and luckily all of the Allmons completed the race!

Our 1960’s Remodel Continued – Master Bath Makeover

We are continuing our tour of the 1964 contemporary home that we introduced to you last week.

To help you understand how the master bathroom was restructured, I have included some before and after floor plans of this space.  The original bathroom was cramped with a double vanity, toilet and tub, all lined up in a row.

Historical Hyde Park Renovation Kitchen Beautification

We have completed the duplex project about which we previously blogged.  This is a beautiful building but, as you know, needed some help to bring it back to its original grandeur.  We will be posting some before and after pictures of various parts of this house to illustrate the changes that have taken place.

A troubled tub

In this before picture, you can see a really dated jetted tub. This tub was never used because the first time it was turned on the water turned black from the residual that was in the jets—YUCK! The white tile tub deck and backsplash, as well as the polished brass hardware (that has oxidized), makes this tub replacement a must.
