Project Description

The owner of this venerable home in eastern Allen County came to us wishing to expand and update the living area as well as add an attached garage. The home is a sentimental place for the owner, being owned by his parents before him and a place he has always called home. Among the list of requests from the owner, he wanted the home to look as though it had not been expanded when the project was completed.

With those instructions, Lynn designed the expansion to maintain the original feel of the home while creating new and modern spaces for the owner. A new large kitchen opening into an equally large great room is just the beginning of the changes that will be made. A new master suite with master bath will be added to the main floor and will be the 2nd bedroom in the home to have a private bath.

The new finished basement under the addition and will offer a theater room as well as a recreation area with a built-in bar. The basement will have large daylight windows and a convenient half-bath. The 3-car side-loading garage will be situated in the rear of the home and is smartly located with easy access to the kitchen and laundry room areas.

An elevated and covered composite deck just off of the new great room, will boast a gas exterior fireplace. The home will be completely resided and will have the existing roof replaced as well. The interior of the existing home will be totally refurbished as part of the project and when finished it will feel like a brand new inside and out. All in all, this will be one of, if not the largest residential remodel/expansion project we have been contracted to do and we feel very honored and proud to be a part of it.
