This large custom home renovation involved making changes to roughly half the house. The owners wished to take advantage of the splendid views and give the property a contemporary look with clean, modern lines. As in most custom kitchen renovations, we replaced some of the cabinets to make room for new appliances, and repainted those remaining. A new sink and modern countertops gave the entire kitchen a brand-new look and feel. Two bedrooms received a makeover. In the master bedroom we installed a white oak barrel-vaulted ceiling, along with a new fireplace complete with a natural stone facade. The en-suite had a bathroom remodel. We removed walls that blocked some of the light around the shower, and slightly lowered the ceiling with a partial barrel vault. In the second bedroom, we increased space with a new bay window and a built-in window seat. Back in the main living areas, a complete revamp was part of this custom home renovation. We took out walls to create a bright, spacious living/dining area and flooded it with even more light by installing an additional window. New flooring completed the dining area. The fireplace in the living area needed updating from a functional but old-fashioned castle-like design. Lisa from Step One designed a modern fireplace with contemporary clean lines inspired by the curve of the TV, and our own Ian Baker refined the concept. Custom millwork and black walnut complete the effect, with a live edge hearth adding the finishing touch. As the final part of the renovation, a two-bay garage became a brand new media room complete with a 140-inch screen.
