Four-Family Residence to Single-Family Home Remodel

The homeowners' 1800s Victorian home on Fowler Lake had been turned into a four-family residence. The empty-nesters wanted to convert the four units into a single-family home, so they could be closer to a vibrant downtown area and the lake.

To restore the home back to a single-family residence, the first and second floors were completely gutted and reconfigured to accommodate a modern lifestyle while keeping the scale and feel of the original home. A servant staircase was removed, and the foyer size was reduced to create space for a first floor powder room and maximize the dining room size. The first floor kitchen was relocated to a former bedroom and bathroom area to take advantage of southern light, lake views, and to connect it to the lake porch.

Our customers also wanted to reintroduce the home's historic charm while maintaining the cozy lake home feel. This was achieved with the following:

- Custom casing and trim details
- Fireplace restorations
- Custom cabinets and built-ins with inset doors
- Custom 8-foot-tall doors
- Custom handrail, balusters, and newel post in the foyer
- Tin ceiling in the kitchen
- New light fixtures and hardware
- Douglas Fir flooring and bead board ceilings and walls in the lake porch
