There are plenty of benefits to working with a design/build firm, but one client’s recent project truly highlights how extensively a home can be transformed thanks to a long-lasting relationship.
The family loved their MetroWest town, but they didn’t have such fond feelings toward their 1970’s colonial. The design was no longer conducive to their lives and the decor made them feel like they were stuck in the 1980s.
Some homeowners may have opted to sell given the undertaking, but given how much they loved the location, they elected to remodel the entire home, updating the layout and adding all the conveniences that modern design elements and appliances provide.
Simply put, the results are stunning.
From Colonial to 21st Century
The design phase was the first task to tackle. JM Construction’s Courtney Wall worked closely with the client to plan out spaces that would suit their needs – from family fun, to relaxation time, to appreciating the arts.
To banish the ‘80s back to whence they came, she also curated selections of cabinetry, appliances, and other finishing touches that would reflect their style: clean and modern with a touch of retro inspiration.
A Modern Kitchen for a Coffee Connoisseur
The kitchen was a top priority for the family. The husband has a passion for coffee roasting and brewing, so we created a dedicated area for him to perfect his formula, and keep his trusty espresso maker. If you’re planning on remodeling your kitchen, JM Construction absolutely recommends caffeine lovers go for a built-in coffee system – read all about them right here.To fully deck out this artisanal kitchen that could handle anything thrown at it, we added an apron front fireclay sink, a Suvie oven, vacuum sealing drawer, steam oven, under counter double drawer refrigerator, and induction cooktop.
Make Room for More Art in MetroWest
The culinary arts aren’t the only ones that this family loves. We designed and built a custom storage and display solution for their book collection, located in a dedicated office. Learn more about maximizing space with custom built-ins and cabinetry in our post here. We also created space to house a baby grand piano and artwork, which required creating a barrier between the living room and the kitchen.
To add more modern comforts, we redesigned the entrance, installed radiant floor heating to the entire first floor, and designated space for an electronics charging station. We complemented these contemporary updates with a touch of old school style – a fireplace with built-in wood storage.
An Evolving Home for Evolving Needs
As a design/build firm, we were able to form a strong relationship with our client, which helped them achieve their design goals. We kicked off this extensive project in November of 2020 and wrapped up in October 2022.
Our phased approach across this 2-year period helped us deliver a gradual yet entire renovation of the home, with minimal disruption to the family’s everyday life. A long-lasting partnership with JM Construction means you can get exactly what you want – even if that’s an entirely new interior of your home!
Our client can now fully enjoy the form and function of their house – and stay in a community they love.
