Working with local architect Edye Conkerton, Jim Cassidy Construction turned a 1970s ranch kitchen and living room into a modern entertaining space and a kitchen large enough to accommodate two cooks with professional grade equipment.
The sparse dated ranch kitchen was completely gutted and the wall separating the kitchen and living room was taken down and replaced with an in-ceiling beam to open up the entire space. The L-shaped island was installed and transformed the space into a functioning professional-grade kitchen. Part of the existing utility room was converted into a carport entrance mudroom and pantry area.
The front porch was rarely used and had a low-flat ceiling blocking natural light from entering the house. The front porch space was converted to living space with the addition of a library and new “front door” on the side. The ceiling was raised to 11 feet and windows installed to convert the once dark space into a new tree house to allow the owners to enjoy the natural, wooded neighborhood.
