owner requested what all owners of ranch-style homes desire…more natural
light, an open floor plan and an exterior façade with character. Steel
tube columns were embedded in the exterior walls to support the large
cantilevered awnings at the front porch, garage, and back pool area.
Removing the wall between the dining room and kitchen allowed us to
reorient the kitchen to relate to the adjacent living areas, as well as
granting leeway for a large walk-in pantry. Custom-built exposed trusses
were constructed to replace the low ceilings and awkward soffits. French
doors open up to a limestone capped terrace, which beckons one to enjoy
the panorama of the natural landscape, new pool and hot tub. The master
bedroom was enhanced by the addition of a massive, unique custom-built
bookshelf unit. Antique temple columns were repurposed as architectural
elements within the bookshelf and carved Santa Fe doors were reworked to
provide privacy for the master bath. Overall, the whole house remodel
boasts must-see architectural features, impeccable craftsmanship,
attention to detail, and superlative design solutions.
