Working with a client to find the right property and delivering a gut renovation in less than five months

We first started working with this client as a consultant during the home buying process – they were looking for something that needed some work, but wanted someone with them who had knowledge about what could be possible from a code, zoning, structural, and design perspective. So we looked together, and found a 2-story condo that, while serviceable, was quite dated.

Mere days after closing, we were hard at work on the design, and came up with a completely open floorplan, reorganized kitchen, and a much, much more useable bedroom layout on the third floor.

With a very tight timeline, we had to work together to prioritize – we didn’t touch the master bath, for example, saving it for a future project – and these clients stayed the course relentlessly. Combine that with an awesome, professional contractor, and the project was delivered with one day to spare before their lease expired on their rental! We love working on projects for families, and this one was no exception – we included lots of family-friendly touches, like the 10′ island with eating bar, the built-in storage and window seat in the dining room, the tall pantry storage in the kitchen, and the long open spaces for running and playing!
