Sometimes you can’t do it all at once. That is when a Master Plan helps an owner achieve a grander design scheme as cash flow and other limiters allow. Implemented incrementally by a skilled DIY owner, the family is living through the transformation of this 1978 ranch into a high style craftsman showpiece. The Master Plan includes replacing most wood trim, adding wainscoting, replacing/enhancing the fireplace mantel, crown molding/ceiling trim, new lighting with dimmers, built-ins throughout the home, upgrading existing kitchen cabinets, installing hardwood/tile flooring, adding a master bedroom bath/closet addition, upgrading guest bathrooms, and replacing all interior/exterior doors. Outside improvements include new windows, bays, rafter tails, front door and lighting. Living through a whole house renovation is not for everyone; but it meets the aesthetic and financial goals of this owner.
