A Bungalow Reborn
After years of debate, Jeff & Sophia made the choice to renovate their 1950’s bungalow, rather than move. Their location was ideal – offering them proximity to amenities and backing onto a ravine with mature forest & walking trails. The 1750 square feet of main floor space, and their fully finished basement gave them all the living space they needed, but layout changes and upgrades were overdue.
On the exterior, ‘breathing character’ into the structure included replacing the old roof, raising some wall heights, new windows & doors and installing upgraded stone & stucco materials. The classic Arts & Crafts style flows to the interior with simple lines and a tasteful combination of natural materials & textures.
