This 1,100-square-foot rental home was repurposed to serve as a primary residence. The homeowner wanted to keep the original 1930s architecture, turn the carport into a media room and home office to create more livable space, add a kitchen peninsula for entertaining and add a utility room.
This project was done in two parts so the homeowner could move in sooner. The first phase reconfigured the original floor plan to add spaces, add lighting, refinish hardwood floors, remodel two bathrooms, the kitchen and rebuild the fireplace. The second phase was converting the 400-square-foot carport into its new use as a media room/home office.
Some details of this project include glass-knobbed hardware on the interior doors, marble countertops and white subway tiles in one of the bathrooms. The master bath was re-oriented to allow space for the utility room.
