2012 CRA Category 10 - Carolina Traditional Homes, Inc.

Over the years, the age of this 1940s bungalow style home caught up to it. The roof needed to be replaced and there were settling problems inside the home.  The 1940s kitchen needed updating and the 2 bed/1bath bungalow was just not enough room anymore.  The homeowner decided it was time to move and searched long and hard in the area for a new home, but couldn’t find anything that felt like home.  Upon meeting with Ken Baker of Carolina Traditional Homes, they discussed ideas and plans that would make his Shandon bungalow into the Dream Home that he always wanted.


They came up with a plan to completely renovate the small 1,200 sq ft home and build a 1,950 sq ft. addition, complete with a large custom kitchen, great room, laundry room, sunroom, master suite and bedroom.  Features of the addition are new custom cabinets, new stainless steel appliances, a tankless water heater a new downstairs powder room, large pantry and laundry room.  The new master bath features a steam shower, sauna, heated tile floors and a large jetted master tub, and granite countertops throughout.
