Costanzo Residence craftsman

Costanzo Residence

This small bungalow needed to grow along with the needs of the couple's growing family. Focusing on the importance of scale and proportion with the added space was key to this design. The existing square footage was sensitively redesigned to include more built-ins, a new fireplace and detailed millwork while the new square footage of the house will tie into that with it's attention to detail with a new Kitchen, Family Room, Master Suite and Playroom. To work with the owner's budget, the project was broken into two phases so that quality would not suffer in any way. While the Costanzos are enjoying their brand new front half, the back half is currently under construction.

The vendor is Metolius Ridge. Their tile selection has changed greatly since this project was done, so the color may be discontinued. They may be able to tell you differently if you send the image to them.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bungalow living rooms are typically anchored by a large fireplace flanked with built-in cabinetry and shelving. These fireplaces could be brick, stone or faced with a decorative tile to add color and interest to the living room. In the early days, these fireplaces provided warmth, hearth and entertainment center all in one. They were the true center of the bungalow home.
