Year Completed: 2008
We built a 12 X 16 addition off the back of the house with a new deck, patio area & backyard. While doing so we also re-roofed the entire house & built a new custom staircase in the front foyer.
The Success Story
This backyard was in desperate need of a makeover. We took the existing porch & deck space and turned it into a 18 x 16 sitting room with a beautiful mahogany deck attached. The landscaping was due for some improvements so we pushed the tree line back to make a bigger back yard, added a nice patio for grilling and entertaining on those beautiful summer days, and we also added some plantings & an irrigation system for low maintenance.
Inside, when you first walked through the front door was this ugly “builder grade” staircase. The staircase is in the middle of the house so we decided to make it a show piece. We opened up the staircase by using mitered treads so that the balusters would go down into the tread rather than into a knee wall. From there we added a bullnose step with a climbing volute handrail, iron balusters and an over the post railing system with oak treads.
