Room Remodel | Bronze

Project name: Beamed Family Room Transformation

Renovating this 358-sq.-ft. family room involved updating materials and style without making any major structural changes. New oak beams and trusses create balance in an another lopsided space. Windows and doors were replaced and a new transom window added above the French doors leading to the side terrace. The existing fireplace was updated with a new stone hearth and surround. The custom-built bookcase is finished to match the oak beams. Carpet was ripped out and the oak flooring below refinished. The remodel was completed within the original footprint of the room.
