Neil Kelly Design/Build Remodeling, Portland, OR
This mid-century modern house was unchanged from the original 1950s design—complete with tiki bar in the basement. Our goal was to preserve as many period features as possible while updating and expanding the space. We added a new master suite at the mid-level of the home. We removed a partial wall that cut the kitchen off from the living room. The entry and ceiling had beautiful hemlock paneling on the walls, which we salvaged and added to. We then transformed the basement into a fun and useful playroom. We also added a deck and large outdoor kitchen space with built-in BBQ.
