This lovely country home, built in the 80’s, had great bones and wonderful attention to detail. However, it was in need of a total renovation. Starting with the exterior, we placed the old drafty windows and doors hi-performance windows and doors by Marvin. A fresh coat of paint was added and then it was time to move inside. Once inside, the entire home was remodeled and renovated. The interior layout was improved to create open spaces and every room received new flooring, trim, paint and lighting. The kitchen, master bath, and kids baths were all completely remodeled. In the end this house was better than new and exactly what the owner wanted.
