Project Description

Home Builders Association of Charlotte
Excellence In Remodeling 2010 – Gold Award Winner

This home is situated on an attractive property that backs up to a cove on scenic Lake Norman.  The view from the 2nd story deck and third floor of the home is spectacular.  The client desired to enhance the value of his home by adding brick veneer to the sides and rear of the home as well as by adding a beautiful deck made of Ipe wood from Brazil.

The contractor was pleased that the existing foundation protruded sufficiently to support the brick veneer on all sides of the home.

 As the project progressed, the client envisioned adding some entertainment space at ground level under the new deck.  The contractor suggested the alternative of converting some of the unimproved crawl space into a game room and bar area with bathroom.  The client agreed.

In order to allow added light and to enhance the view of the lake from the ground level room, the plan included excavating a few feet below the ground level.  A double door entry with a wide stairs and raised ceiling area increased the effective ceiling height and made the room more inviting.   Additional windows insured that the room would be bright despite being recessed beneath the high deck.  The top interior step was extended across the entire front of the room to act as a serving area and decorative touch tying the pool table and bar areas of the room together. Built-in bookcases were added to the right wall of the Game room and a bar was situated on the left side.  A Bathroom was also installed on the left side of the project.

As the room use will normally be in the summer months when most activity is outdoors, the client opted to forgo interior stairs.  This factor allowed for enlarged useable area in the Basement.
