Mark D. Williams Custom Homes
Age of the home: Originally built in 1911
Type of remodel: Whole house
Remodeling timeline: Six months
Remodeling budget: $500,000
Before: This two-story home was in need of more space (1,000 square feet was added off the back) and updates were needed in the kitchen/mudroom, master suite, bathroom, garage, and lower level.
Challenges: Poor foundation footings were discovered when the foundation was dug out, leading to underpinning and engineering repairs. It was a surprise cost, but the end design was more structurally sound as a result.
Unique elements: Even with high-end details, this home feels cozy and approachable. It has the personality of the 1911 home (complete with a reclaimed and repurposed 12-foot kitchen buffet), but operates with the modern conveniences and efficiencies of a home built in 2016.
