Project Description

Major Remodeling and Addition in South Charlotte

This home is situated on an attractive property in a desirable section of South Charlotte. There was no question in the minds of the owners that the property would support the major addition and remodeling that they desired.

The architect developed a creative design that achieved major improvements in both the interior and exterior appearance of the home. The added side entrance that flowed into a small Office, Pantry and Gathering room also served to break up the mass of the existing garage sidewall as viewed from the street. It also provided an alternative guest entrance from the driveway and added to the privacy of the rear yard.

The preferred family entrance is from the Garage interior. This entrance was modified by addition second Stairway, a relocated Laundry, a Cubby for family garments and sports gear as well as a built in Wine Storage cabinet.

The rear added on portion of the home, seamlessly integrated the Kitchen, informal Dining and Gathering room, with fireplace, to the existing structure. To help define the distinct activity areas the design included an attractive bold coffered ceiling and load-bearing columns at the entrance to the open Gathering room area. The Kitchen features a massive granite surfaced island that serves as both a work area and an inviting seating area for family meals and casual entertaining of guests. The chef of the family never has to be alone while entertaining or preparing meals for the family or guests. The view from the new kitchen provides light in all directions due to the added windows and large doors to the screened porch.

The construction comprises 1050 square feet of new-finished heated area and 470 square feet of renovated heated area. The screen porch with fireplace and a small deck for grilling added an additional 470 square feet of unheated area. Poor soil conditions presented an added challenge for the contractor and the foundation required installation of a 14 Helical Pier System.
