The owners of this house wanted three additional bedrooms as well as more space on the first floor. In designing the second floor dormer we had to incorporate the space over the garage as well as the rest of the house. Our designers did a beautiful job in the new dormer addition both inside and out. We were very careful not to make the house look boxy or like it had a cheap dormer added. Inside there is a central staircase and open living area on the first floor and three new bedrooms and two full bathrooms on the second floor.

This house had extensive interior and exterior damage due to a fire on the second floor and required a complete home renovation. Since the second floor had to be completely removed the owners had us design a new floor with four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The architect designed the new structure in the traditional colonial style with everything that the owners wanted. The first floor was completely remodeled as well with a new kitchen, bathroom, living room, dining room and family room with a gas fireplace.

The young owners of this small house in St. James needed more space for their growing family. Their wish list included a garage, mud room, family room, larger living room and kitchen as well as two more bedrooms and two more baths. If there was room in the budget they also wanted a front porch. On our first meeting they presented me with a set of plans that incorporated all of the above items but admitted to me that other contractors estimated the job to be well over their budget. Having nothing to lose at this point they handed me the plans and asked if I could work some magic, possibly make some changes in the plan and come up with an estimate within their budget. Back in my office, I studied the plan and carefully removed a lot of items that I thought were unnecessary and came up with a price. We met a couple more time to make changes and finally had a plan and budget that was perfect for all of us. The final result is a house with everything on their wish list.

This three bedroom ranch house was a typical house built in the 1960's. The owners loved the location with it's waterview in Northport so they did not want to move. A house like that did not have the master suite that they wanted. Since the property would not accommodate any first floor addition we had to build up. They gave the architect strict instructions to make sure the new bedroom had a front view of the harbor. The real challenge was getting a stirs to the new addition and that required bumping out the front door. The architect didn't stop at just designing the addition but gave the whole house an updated look as well. Not only do they have a front water view from the bedroom but they now have a front balcony on the second floor as well as a front porch on the first floor. We also made the garage wider and then converted this larger space to a family room with a bay window in front.

This house was in need of a lot of updating. On the exterior the roofing, siding, windows, doors had to be replaced and on the interior the kitchen , baths and floors were ready for a makeover. But the owners wanted to use this opportunity to add some space on as well. In the design stage they expressed that they wanted a completely new look to the house inside and out. Like many homeowners they loved their location in Huntington and the large property and did not want to more. The result was exactly that; a completely new exterior and interior as well as a lot more living space. All of the old mechanical units in the house were updated and a solar hot water system was also added.

The owners of this home simply wanted more space added and did not want a huge renovation with a huge budget. But they also did not want a cheap dormer that looked like it was added on. We came up with a simple design with a seamless transition between the old and the new so it looks like it was originally built that way. The new addition has three bedrooms, a full bath and laundry room in the new second story.

This colonial style home needed a new , larger kitchen. The owners wanted to use the existing dining room as part of the new kitchen. Therefore they had to use the existing family room which was next to the kitchen as the new dining room. That meant that they now needed a new family room. We designed the new room onto the back of the house so that it open up from the new kitchen. The new room was larger than the old and has a cathedral ceiling and lots of windows to view the beautiful yard and pool. The roofing and siding match the house perfectly so that it doesn't look added on.

The owners of this colonial style house wanted a living area for their elderly parents to stay. It required a bathroom and small kitchen area for the couple to be self sufficient. Since the couple were at such an advanced age the owners realized that this room may only be a temporary living space while their parents can still live independently. And so the deign would have to consider that the kitchen would be removed and the room could be a living space for them in the future. A large deck was added for both couples to enjoy and was made of low maintenance composite lumber. As the years have passed, they owners have told me that they are now using the room themselves but that it was a very comfortable place for the time their parents spent there.
