We get to work on many different types of projects. The best part… It’s the ‘why’ behind our
clients’ projects that makes it unique and personal. And honestly, it’s the ‘why’ of a project that
helps us, their design consultant, connect with our client’s vision in a personal way.
A special project we recently completed has given us a happy our heart, so let us share the
Instead of moving from a home they love, our clients chose to stay and renovate. They grew
their single-family ranch by transforming it into a multi-generational dwelling. And while adding
a separate home for to care for family, they were able to also fulfill a long-awaited dream of a
beautiful kitchen update!
Family Suite: A Second Home Addition
Growing a home is not an easy feat, luckily an unused side yard offered the perfect location to
attach a perfectly sized home for 1-2 additional family members. Intentionally designed to be
adaptable, the new 1,000 square feet allowed for future changes for any age or ability. A
separate front door welcomes privacy and independence, while a shared passageway keeps the
two homes, and family members connected. The kitchen is a perfect location for a shared
passageway. It is the heart of the home, you know.
Repurpose for the win!
In the case of this home’s transformation, reusing parts of the original kitchen to create the
kitchenette for the Family Suite. A simple reconfigure of the cabinets, lighting and other fixtures
made a perfect design while saving money on the addition. It’s always a project win when our
client is able to repurpose and save money. (Tip: Keep your cabinets clean and well maintained
to extend life)
Give and then Receive
When you give, you shall receive. And it’s our opinion that creating a space in your home to care
for family is a sure sign of a giver’s heart. So, a dream kitchen is what our client gave themselves
in return. A vision that included beautifully crafted cabinets, warmth of natural stone and
copper, a few technology upgrades, and a unique personal signature. Our clients waited a long
time to see their vision become reality. It was surely the icing on the cake to wrap up this special
project for both this two-household dwelling and for us, their design consultant.
