Remodeling of a 50-year-old family home by the design/build firm Homeworks Construction achieved the primary goal of its owners — an open, spacious and stylish interior.

“Although some renovations were done in 1990, the owners were now ready for what is essentially a new home. Our design/build team worked closely with the owners to develop a plan for a completely new interior layout,” said Kim Green, Homeworks sales coordinator. “Many of the design and selection decisions were guided by considerations of convenience, accessibility, and aging in place.”


Renovation of the 2,694-square-foot, four-bedroom, three-bath home to suit the needs and lifestyle of the family involved redesigning the main living and dining area and relocating the kitchen to another part of the house that receives morning sunlight. The new custom kitchen, designed by Homeworks award-winning kitchen designer Sean Bradshaw, features all new appliances, fixtures and cabinetry. New cabinets and shelving were also installed throughout the home, and a new master suite was created with walk-in closets. A custom-designed desk was added to the office/den and the existing fireplace altered to suit the remodeled room. The laundry room, previously in the garage, was moved to the house.

Structural alterations required to entirely open up interior areas included installation of a 40-foot steel beam. Existing exterior siding was replaced with new horizontal lap siding and the entry was redesigned to create a more welcoming approach to the home.
