Project Description

Project Overview

Smithouse was hired to do a total overhaul of this house. This client wanted to be able to entertain groups of 30 or more on a regular basis and prior to the renovation, this was not able to happen.

We reworked the entire first floor plus added new spaces. “It was a biggy,” said Project Manager JP Pototschnik. Highlights included a new gym above a 3 car garage, adding an office to the back of the house along with an extensive porch, updating the entire exterior of the house including adding custom stone detailing, a new mudroom, a new roof, painting all the windows, new front and back doors and adding custom beams to the interior.

Total Overhaul

“There were lots of moving parts to this project, especially between the design team and architect,” said Pototschnik. “We worked hard to make sure that the client, designers and architect’s visions were all being met in an effort to create the perfect property for the client.”
