Georgia Whole House Remodel
Complete Renovation of 1986 traditional box home. Removed walls to create open floor plan and improve flow. Addition included a mud room, enlarged kitchen and renovation of original bathrooms. Large covered porches were added front & rear with french doors leading to each.
1. Removed main load bearing wall between old den and formal living room to make one room. Installed 8″ i-beam in ceiling with steel supports in the walls that sit on new foundation piers under the crawlspace
2. Move Garage forward for mudroom and added bonus room above. Front porch & fake gable on the right were added to balance the garage and create the correct proportions of scale.
3. Project was permitted so all mechanicals & insulation were brought up to code as well as tempered glass requirements
4. Structural Engineer was used for the numerous LVL and Steel beams used throughout the remodel.
5. Mudroom was challenging because it seemed large, however when you add the island, dog crates, extra refrigerator, mop sink & broom/coat closets it becomes tight in a hurry.
New front elevation with large covered porch, gas light and french doors with transoms.
New open den/dining area. the dining area was the old den. the i-beam is in the ceiling above the sofa.
Enlarge kitchen includes plenty of storage, new island and prep sink. Refrigerator & double over are to the left in this photo.
New laundry room replaced a laundry closet. Dog crates are under island. Dutch door leads to new rear stairs that access bonus room.
New master bath doubled in size to include his/her vanities, tub & shower with rain head
