1990's WHOLE HOUSE REMODEL

1990's WHOLE HOUSE REMODEL

I always say that no two projects are the same, but the Water Vista Project is taking it to new heights, literally! I can say for certain that we’ve never worked on a project that has so many turrets, so many decks, and so many angles and arches. 

BEFORE PHOTOS

The great room and the master suite are both oriented to over-look the pond below. Sounds lovely, right? It is, in many ways! The views are absolutely stunning….but once inside, you start asking yourself, “What? What?? What???”

For this post, I’m sharing just a sampling of both the exterior and interior photos, along with our scope of work for the project.

In future post, I’ll get specific and show what’s not working in the spaces and how we solve them. As soon as the clients took ownership of the house, they went to work demoing and pulling out all the yuck! Take a look.

TAKING AS-BULIT MEASUREMENT

It’s always nice if home owners have the original plans, and drawings for any changes that have been made since the home was built, but that’s not always how it is. Often we have to recreate them by taking careful site measurements that are then drawn in CAD. Once the new plans are completed then we can get to work redesigning the space.

THE TAKE AWAY

  • Before changes can even be proposed with a remodel project we have to first figure out what’s existing, the adjacencies and how the rooms come together. Once it’s all on paper than the process of reinterpreting the space begins.

  • Drawings are the primary means of communication for construction projects. The more accurate and specific, the better the project will turn out. Don’t short change yourself, or your project by not investing in well designed plans.

  • And don’t forget to invest in elevations too. The vertical views are where the architecture of the space is defined with cabinetry, door styles, casings and trims. They also provide critical information like wall light locations and answer questions like, how high and how far.

  • If you have a remodel project in your future, or a new build, we can help! Go here to learn more about TF Design.

Thanks for following along! I can’t wait to get started at the drawing board. It’s going to be an amazing transformation.

Cheers!
