From attic to retreat

This 1950’s style home has balloon framing and boasts an attic with a lot of character.  As the homeowner had a need for additional living space, the first thought was to add an addition.  However,  after exploring options, the final decision was to take this top level attic and create a retreat to include a full bathroom, bedroom, walk-in closet, living space and linen closet.  The walls were painted with Sherwin Williams Repose Grey and finished with white trim.

New Granite Counter Top

Many homes built 10-15 years ago boast cabinets in the kitchen that are still in decent shape.  However, laminate counter tops have become dated, peal around the seams and create an eyesore in an otherwise functional space.  With various grades of granite, it is easy to upgrade the look of your kitchen by just replacing the counter top.  This homeowner upgraded from a basic laminate to a neutral granite.  The look is so much more elegant and modern.
