Much of the important work of renovation
was behind the walls, Ken notes. Issues such as
misdirected fan vents, uncapped HVAC ducts,
and insufficient wiring had to be corrected. The
entire HVAC unit was moved from the attic to
the top floor for better efficiency, and whole-house
dehumidifiers were installed. Even though
the results are invisible, the work was critical.
The homeowners say they are grateful to work
with a team that took each of those challenges as
seriously as if it were their own home.
Durability was an important factor in many
of the design decisions. The homeowners
wanted a space that would be both safe and
comfortable for all generations, so they selected
fixtures and finishes that were child-friendly.
From the handrails to the window levers, every
detail was chosen to be attractive in design and
safe for the kids.
Attention to detail —
even unseen ones —
makes this modern
transitional house a home.
