Remodeling Dollhouse

Have you ever thought that you wanted to change everything about your house? You love the space, but you just want to see your vision and dreams come to life? This situation describes a couple in West Orange who hired Design Build Planners to remodeling designs that completely overhauled their home. To the right is a dollhouse overview of the project.

Major changes were planned for the following:

  • Master Bath
  • Master Closet
  • Kitchen
  • Laundry Room
  • New Garage
  • Master Suite
  • Entry

First, the master bathroom was converted using added space from a previous closet. The existing garage was turned into a family room. Next, the master closet added drywall, finish, paint, insulation, four recessed lights, carpeting, and a wood subfloor. The kitchen included a wall removal and tiling. Furthermore, a one tiered island with seating for four, and a cooktop + oven/convection microwave combo was added. Since the previous garage was turned into the family room, a new 22′ x 22′ garage with two overhead doors was built. Finally, the new entry included new steps and railings.
