A RESIDENTIAL REMODEL OF AN OUTDATED 1970s HOME
Country living at its finest... this idyllic setting prompted the decision to pursue a substantial remodel of the family's existing home. Originally built in the 1970s, the existing house stood on an excellent rural lot, but suffered from an outdated floor plan and a rather tired architectural aesthetic. Following the home-owner's wishes, EDA explored multiple design options, and ultimately landed on this charming "Country Cottage" scheme. A new family room addition to the east enlarged the home's main living space, and opened the Great Room to an enhanced central Kitchen. A new guest bedroom suite was added to the second floor, with a mezzanine retreat that overlooks the volume of the Great Room below. The enlarged second level enhances the building's roof line, and the overall massing of the structure as seen from the main access road. Upgraded finishes, fixturing, and appliances brought a fresh new feeling to the home's interior... making this clan's house the center of the family's gatherings for years to come.
