Recently, we worked with this Portland family through two very distinct remodeling phases. Each phase was done in an effort to trasform their home into a beautiful retreat, and aslo to allow room for their growing family.
The Problem: This family of five needed additional square footage in their Portland home. This family loved their neighborhood, but their current home was too cramped for each member of the family to live comfortably.
The Solution: Converting the existing crawlspace into a sunny lower level, expanding the home to accommodate a play room and a craft room. We also created two additional bump outs on the first and third levels to create space for a third bedroom.
The First Phase: Using the home’s small space for creative inspiration, we were able to maximize every inch of this 607 square foot addition for function and storage. Included in this phase: a craft room, play room, custom murphy bed, kitchenette, laundry room, and full bathroom.
The Second Phase: The second phase of this remodel prioritized reconfiguring the middle level of the home. The kitchen, located on the main floor, was also remodeled. A new floor plan was created to include minor bump out additions on both levels, allowing us to expand the kitchen above and create an additional third bedroom on the bottom level.
The kitchen, a professional grade design, features custom, functional alder cabinetry at every turn. In fact, this kitchen has so much storage that we were able to remove a walk-in pantry and still gain storage! Removing the existing pantry allowed for an open floor plan into the living room, creating an open, airy space that was previously non-existent.
Additionally, we replaced a peninsula eat-in bar with a new, large kitchen island, allowing for a comfortable, circular flow for guests, kids, and the serious home cook!
We are proud to create inspiring designs and execute those designs thoughtfully and with great detail. We take great pride in the level of service we provide for our clients, as evidenced by this homeowner’s testimonial:
“We have entrusted our two major remodeling projects to COOPER Design Builders. It is easy to be happy with your contractor when everything goes right- it’s another to still be able to still be able to say that after everything that occurs with a large project like ours! The friendliness, patience, and professionalism of the COOPER team when addressing our concerns, anxieties, and priorities makes it easy to recommend them to anyone who is looking to re-imagine and remodel their home”.
