Whole house remodel, Silver Spring MD

EARTH AND SKY. In many whole-house remodels, homeowners must choose between keeping what they love and getting what they need. We look for ways you won't have to make that choice--as in this home, which kept its abundant garden and manageable footprint and gained major space and naturally beautiful materials in the master bedroom and bath, kitchen, sunroom, and more.

Can you send up a photo of your cabinets? jyurek@carnemark.com - it is had to suggest a color counter top without knowing what the wall color is or what the cabinets look like. Red and black can make for a strong color pallet depending on how they are used - you might want to look into a neutral counter top but it is hard to say without seeing the space.

We did not purchase a new door for this home. Instead, we reused an existing door and reinstalled it in a new location.

Addition - I understand that you build an addition to this house? Was it a second floor? Our house is a similar lay out, and we would be interested in looking at the plan, or more pictures, or any info about that addition . Thank you on advance.

Yes - we did build an addition onto this home. Here is a bit of the story - An empty-nester couple wanted to enjoy their garden year-round, rain or shine. But their sunroom was too small and out of the flow--and the space went unused much of the time. An addition would have disturbed beautiful and valuable mature plantings. The solution required a sensitive design that stuck to the home's original footprint without sacrificing space.

Check out our website to see the full project - http://www.carnemark.com/portfolio_detail.asp?id=72 and feel free to call us to talk more about it - 301-657-5000

Well, I admire you and your quest to renovate your brick. My advice is to keep what you have. Suggest you find a good stone mason to check out foundation, mortar, moisture etc. Only two layers of paint since 1938? Power wash it, gently. scrape it with wire brushes. Explore the moisture. Why are you asking me where I found my salt washed brick (as I like to call it). Since it's obvious you are not replacing your brick. That would be a knock down! I used it on foundation and outdoor FP new construction. Sorry, no photos yet.

The brick you see here was a part of the original home - we did not build it so I do not know the exact name. When we added the addition onto the home our team hand painted the new bricks to perfectly match

This home was a unique situation. The brick that everyone loves was a part of the original home's design. We built an addition onto the home and our great team actually hand painted in the white wash to make all the bricks match. Thank you for your interest!
