The homeowner had used Design Build Planners for a large scale project several years ago. Upon inheriting this property, DBP was his first call! The property needed major interior and exterior updates. The DBP team created designs to suit the clients’ needs. Timeless Remodeling is building and managing the Berkley Heights, NJ remodeling project with Blue Nail handling the siding and roofing.
This renovation project is the second one DBP has designed for this client. The plan was to remodel and update the home to be rented or sold for investment. However, as residents in the same town as the home, they did not want to simply “flip” the home with cheap builder’s grade materials. The work scope, product selections, and craftsmanship were chosen as if they had intended to live there.
The entire house was gutted down to the framing. Insulation was added to the walls and 2nd floor ceiling, all the electrical wiring and panel replaced, and new drywall installed to make the interior of the home completely new. New hardwood was also installed and stained on site with all new complimentary white moldings to give the home a warm, inviting feel.
The first floor living area was redesigned for an open floorplan, connecting the kitchen and the living room with a large island with seating. The fireplace received a facelift as well, with a granite face to match the countertops. The kitchen features white cabinets and a custom tile installation with imported tile. The breezeway connecting the garage and home was framed in, tiled and finished with drywall to create a functional mud room.
The first-floor bathroom was given new fixtures and a custom tile installation to function well as well as to WOW guests. The second-floor bathroom was reconfigured to add a custom shower with a frameless door, storage shelves, more custom tile, and beadboard wall accents.
Remodeled with the care and detail one would do for themselves, this basically “new” home is ready to create a life’s worth of memories for it’s newest family.
On the exterior, the existing siding, windows and roofing were removed and replaced with new low maintenance products. Dimensional shingles tie together with the upgraded siding color. The windows chosen were not basic replacements, but the entire frame removed and replaced.
An exterior composite deck was installed on the exterior to transition to the rear yard and provide a place for a grill and table.
