This project was a great opportunity to renovate an existing two story 1920's era home and it's garage structure which is in the Lakewood Conservation district. Many of the existing areas of this Tudor home needed to be cleaned, preserved and renovated in an appropriate manner to the original style of the home. This was done while conforming to the Conservation district requirements.
The kitchen was renovated, updated and expanded. It was designed with a central island which opened up to two areas; the new family room that over looked the new patio and back yard and to the breakfast area that had an original mosaic tile floor which was preserved.
As with most homes of this era storage was limited, so a new master bath and master closet were designed and created to help remedy this. A new secondary bath was created as well that kept in harmony with the residence.
Lastly, a new garage was created that allowed for additional storage, as well as a small sitting area to the exterior of the garage. This newly designed sitting area included a vaulted ceiling and outdoor fireplace that gave not only intimacy and privacy, but allowed an open feel to the yard and garden area.
Every effort was made to preserve existing features that contributed to the original feel of the home and create new features that would seamlessly flow with the home.
Construction for this project was English Heritage Homes of Texas.. And we thank them for the use of their photos regarding this project and their excellent work in attention to construction detail.
