The remodel of a Kitchen, Living areas, Stairs, Porch and Reading Room in a house that was last remodeled in the 1970's. The structure was modified to allow the rooms to open up and create a grand space while adding only 50 square feet to the house and also stabilizing the foundation and leveling the floors. The addition was united to the original house by use of red oak on the flooring with a walnut 'band' indicating the original front wall of the residence. Green building techniques were utilized that included spray foam insulation and a tankless hot water heater to improve on energy performance.
