The Eatontown, New Jersey homeowners had a quaint ranch home, but decided that they needed more space. Thus, the homeowners undertook an addition project that included a more expansive kitchen and a new mudroom. Because of this, the back wall of the kitchen, family room, and two back rooms. The existing back deck needed to be removed, and the family planned building a new 150 square foot deck that led to the mudroom. They hired Design Build Planners to create a bathroom remodeling designs that would complement the many owner supplied items that were to be installed. To the right is a dollhouse overview of the project.
In addition to the kitchen addition, new mudroom, and new deck, reframes were needed for the new kitchen, family room, and larger bedrooms. Next, new painting and tile were needed. Finally, 75 square feet needed to be added in order to accommodate a new laundry room with a closet.
Here is the overview of the addition and remodeling design scope.
- Remove existing deck for an addition
- Demo laundry landing as needed for a new landing
- Build a laundry addition to the end of the garage
- Extend kitchen into existing laundry room space
- Build a new additon (8′ off kitchen and family room, 3′ off two rear bedrooms and one rear closet)
- Build a laundry room addition to the end of the garage
- Extend kitchen into the existing laundry room and space
- Shed roof over new addition, extend the roof gable over the laundry room addition
- Support existing roof with a semi-flush header
- Add non-structural beams to the ceiling
- Build a wood deck behind the laundry room
The homeowners drew their inspiration from kitchen projects featured on Houzz.com. The design options are a result of homeowners online research combined with an in-home consultation with Design Build Planners. There is also a proprietary profile checklist that homeowners fill out that depicts their lifestyle and bathroom space use. After compiling this information, Design Build Planners incorporates their construction knowledge and design creativity for the space with a focus on the budget and overall investment.
