1930s 2-Storey


1930s 2-Storey

This 2 storey home was built in the 1930s but over the years, little had been done to modernize it. The owners identified three needs: a rear entrance mudroom, a spacious modern kitchen and a larger closet/dressing area as part of the master bedroom. The solution was a 2 storey addition to the rear of the home. Added space included a main floor family room off the fully

renovated kitchen plus a new mudroom/rear foyer. Second floor addition consisted of a new master bedroom ensuite with walk-through closet, separate shower and bath and office area.

One of the challenges of this project involved maintaining the 1930s look of the home while bringing it functionally into the 2000s. The homeowners insisted the renovation and addition match all of the exterior and interior details of the original home from windows to trims to wall finishes. To match the existing (above left), Sakiyama Construction used cedar 1 x 4 tongue and groove siding as soffit and sculpted custom soffit supports with crown moldings to complete the look (above right). New double hung and casement windows by Paramount incorporated green metal clad exteriors with wide custom brick molds.

The small attached garage was in poor shape (above) and was demolished to make way for a 2 storey 618 square foot addition. Roof style and pitches were maintained to closely match the exterior of the existing home. Stucco texture was applied to mimic the original. The original back door led directly into the main floor hallway, a situation remedied by adding a new rear entrance (right) with a roomy foyer mudroom.

The new rear foyer mudroom pictured here and following features a large closet, storage cabinets with counter, and room for a sitting bench. Custom-milled details by Woodland Supply include window and door casings, corner blocks (above), and baseboards that replicate the original trims and are featured throughout the addition. All windows have custom sized mullions and sills. Even the crown molds in the mudroom match the main hallway with a reveal at the top. Plaster texture was applied to the mudroom walls to match the existing hallway. Note the practical yet beautiful slate floor.

  The original kitchen (above left) was gutted and redesigned with painted Shaker cabinets by Kitchen Craft in a style that mimics the millwork of the era of the home. Granite countertops compliment the cabinetry, and slate backsplash coordinates with slate in the rear foyer.

Custom valances including ceiling moldings that Sakiyama Construction added to the cabinetry provide a classical look that is carried throughout the main and second floor. Classical trims added to the windows complete the look.

Cork floors coordinate with the slate backsplash and are attractive, easy to maintain and comfortable underfoot. Modern stainless steel finished appliances bring a contemporary touch to the classical design.   1930s 2-Storey

Relocating the refrigerator (above) created room for a new built in china cabinet illuminated with integrated puck lights (right). The wainscot backsplash gives a traditional look. Additional granite topped counter space and extra storage drawers add both functionality and appearance.

Incorporated into the redesign of the original kitchen (above) is a useful desk/message centre (right). New position of the fridge creates a more functional work triangle with the new sink and stove. Note the full depth cabinetry over the fridge and pantry storage beside.

The main floor addition created a 260 sq ft space off the kitchen that serves both as a family room and informal eating area. The functional family workspace (above) is combination of custom millwork and factory built cabinets in the same style as the kitchen.

This multifunctional family space includes a cozy banquette (above). The banquette area cleverly hides the original chimney as well as plumbing for the new ensuite above. The custom millwork provides storage space as well as an informal entertainment centre.

On the second level, the original ensuite (above) was transformed into a walk-through closet with built in cabinetry and closet organizers (right). This closet/hallway leads into the new ensuite and home office with doorway visible at right. The millwork theme is continued from the main floor.

The new ensuite features a custom tiled shower with frameless glass walls and marble sill and half wall (above and right) as well as a custom vanity with marble countertop (following).

The large built-in soaker tub has a marble platform and tile surround with matching tumbled marble trim (detail below). Platform front utilizes cabinetry panels to match the vanity.

Of special note is the new custom mosaic tile detailing (above right) to replicate the tile pattern of the original bathroom floor (above left). This tile border is continued throughout the perimeter of the new ensuite, and as featured here, extends into the new separate toilet area.
