2017 Remodeling Excellence Award

Spectacular Update to a 1960’s Split-Level

Sometimes it takes a fresh eye to help you realize your home’s potential. Take this split-level for example. This family needed a bigger kitchen, a larger formal dining room for entertaining, a secluded master suite, and an updated look for the home’s exterior. Normandy Designer Leslie Lee stepped in, and helped them make this home everything they hoped it could be. Let’s take it room by room to see how things have changed:

Kitchen:  The original kitchen needed more space, and the adjacent dining room fit the bill perfectly. Since the formal dining room is going to be relocated (more on that later) incorporating this footprint into the kitchen provided enough space for a large island that will let the four children spread out to do homework during meal prep, and has more than enough space for casual dining for the family.

All these changes added up to a very happy family, and a thoroughly impressed panel of judges. This home took a First Place prize in the 2017 NARI Remodeling Excellence Awards, which only added to this family’s newfound pride in their home.

If you’re dissatisfied with your home, this is proof that you can make a surprising amount of changes to get exactly what you want. Set up a time to talk with Leslie Lee or any one of our designers or architects about the possibilities for your home. If you’re not quite ready to talk plans yet, then join one of the upcoming remodeling workshops. You’ll learn all about what to expect, and what to watch out for, when it’s time to remodel your home.
