Cramped, outdated split-level home was completely transformed with this Arts-and-Crafts-inspired renovation.
Three-bedroom, three-bath home enjoys functional, family-friendly layout with bright new master suite over new garage, main-floor living and rec room/guest space downstairs.
Butt-jointed millwork in edge-grain fir extends throughout. Island-made, wood-framed, low-e, argon-filled windows and insulated, painted aluminum garage doors maximize efficiency while maintaining Craftsman style.
New kitchen features custom, Shaker-style oak cabinetry, Island-quarried granite, fir-trimmed pass-through to dining room for bright, open ambience. Oil-rubbed bronze hardware; complementary Tiffany-style pendant lighting; Energy Star, stainless steel appliances; apron sink with Moen gooseneck faucet; island prep sink.
Unused under-stairs space became cozy, attractive workstation, with comfortable seating and desk.
Reducing, reusing and recycling were essential. Carefully saved and re-used Union Bay brick in the new entry; recycled old aluminum siding; donated wood siding and doors to Habitat for Humanity’s Restore.
Low-VOC paints, slate and natural finishes on local, FSC-certified fir flooring and trim enhance indoor air quality; new floors blend seamlessly with existing wood.
New rainscreen technology, perimeter drainage, framing, plumbing, electrical, insulation and forced air heat pump, low-flow toilets and fixtures.
West Coast colours on Hardi-plank, cedar shingles and low-maintenance landscaping create a home in harmony with treed, water-view setting.
