Remodeling - 1920s Georgian Remodeling - 1920s Georgian Addition/Remodel

1920S Georgian Addition/Remodel
  1920S Georgian Addition/Remodel

The owners purchased this home with the intention of remodeling. Working with Sakiyama Construction and architect Glen Klym, the decision was made to convert the existing garage into a family room with a 2 storey addition adjoining. Sakiyama Construction took care to maintain the original style of the home including matching roof lines, windows and stucco finish.

1920S Georgian Addition/Remodel
The main floor of the addition contained a kitchen and mud room/entrance, and the upper floor a large bedroom and children's bathroom. Existing main floor plan included a remodeled living room, sun room and library with the old kitchen becoming a laundry room. Existing second floor was developed into large master bedroom, walk-in closet and ensuite, and an additional bedroom.   1920S Georgian Addition/Remodel

The old attached garage was transformed into the family room/sunroom pictured here. A major challenge was to develop this room while providing support for the library above.   1920S Georgian Addition/Remodel

Additions - 1940s Cape Cod Additions - 1940s Cape Cod

1940s Cape Cod

The primary focus of this project was to provide increased living space as well as to modernize the home. The "shed" shaped section on the right side of the existing house (above left) was a largely unused, poorly heated side entrance with utility staircase to the boiler room. Designer Greg

Palmer (Palmer Interior Design) worked with the home owners to develop a floor plan that created a sunroom in the "shed" area adjoining a renovated kitchen. A feature of this plan was the use of box window cantilevers to create additional space as well as bringing much needed light into the home. Dining room and front entry way were also redesigned.

1940s Cape Cod

The utility staircase was removed and filled and the old chimney was eliminated. The original boiler heating system was replaced with a high efficiency unit. Note the new custom double hung wood windows, French doors, and exterior woodwork detailing designed by Sakiyama Construction.
