The homeowner wanted to open the main floor to maximize the view of the lake and surrounding mountains. They wanted to create a home for the large family that was not only comfortable but ADA friendly. The original deck was also too small to accommodate all the outdoor activities and was not available for year-round use.
The home, built in the 70’s, had a wall down the middle of the main living and kitchen area with a fireplace and entertainment area. There was only 1 bathroom on the main floor, and it was not ADA accessible. The homeowner also wanted to add an office space to the master suit. The roof was removed along with the fireplace that was in the center of the home opening the view to the lake and mountains beyond. The ceilings were raised which features a hand stacked vaulted structure with exposed beams and tongue and groove ceiling. The entry to the home was reconfigured adding a covered patio and welcoming experience. All the doors and windows were upgraded to fiberglass and a new metal roof installed to limit future maintenance.
