More challenging than a new build where you can plan for your needs from the beginning, this level of remodel required innovative thinking to work around existing obstacles while still meeting the clients’ goals. With the best contractors and finishers in North Texas, Will Steed’s team created entirely new and updated spaces and employed the best in energy efficient products and technology to save the homeowners money in the long run. The homeowners share, “From the first day we met Will, we could tell that he was a man of the highest standards and integrity. His gentle manner, knowledge and experience instills confidence. After years of discussion and multiple designs around a new build, and then ultimately deciding to remodel an existing home, Will was always patient and generous with his time and professional with his advice.”
The most technically challenging part of this remodel was the request to gain as much space in attic areas as possible. Initially a tangle of wiring, plumbing, and ducting, the Will Steed team, through careful attention to detail, carved out usable attic space that seemed impossible in earlier planning stages. Will states, “My framer is the best in the area, and he was able to make excellent use of almost every square inch in the attic.”
Under the stairwell, more unused space was reclaimed as a beautiful and functional bar with wine cooling rack and stemware cabinets. The use of sliding doors in select areas is not only stylish, but another space saving technique. Older, darker wood cabinetry was replaced with white or grey in an updated transitional style, and carpet or wood floor was replaced with lighter woods. The outside of the home received a facelift as well. White limestone is classic, but the brick trim and dark garage doors weighed the home down. Smooth, white outdoor trim replaced the brick and the garage doors were painted a lighter color.
