Summer Ideas

  Back to News

Since it is summer, a lot of people are thinking about remodeling ideas and additions. 


More than 25% of our business comes from existing owners who are doing just that. Sometimes it is as simple as a new mahogany door or replacement windows and sash. For others it is increasing space, fixing old conservatories, remodeling kitchens and much, much more.


The challenge is to enhance your home’s design, not change it.

Here are some recent makeovers you might have missed.

Molly Tee (Acorn Deck House Co) and Buchanan Custom Builders created a new front door, new spaces and a fresh new look throughout this 1985 Deck House.

Here is another great project.

In Situ Studios (Architects) and Redfoot and Weber (Builders) recently completed this Deck House transformation in North Carolina.










Chapel Hill, NC | 2011 | 4,650 sf

This 1960s-era Deck House built in 1986 is located on a beautiful wooded site in Chapel Hill. We have transformed it to suit the client’s needs, while maintaining the integrity of the Deck House. The gable roof portion of the house over the living and dining room has been lifted to the north, creating a two story wall of glass. Skylights are strategically located in order to brighten darker areas of the house. The main house and the master suite addition take on different forms, and they are set apart from one another to distinguish between old and new. The addition floats above the ground and is connected to the main house by a screened porch and glass hallway link. A new entry to the main house was designed in a way that is intended to integrate the two forms.
