Jamie Lutes and Tracie Quick purchased a heavily-wooded, secluded lot in Irmo, SC where they will raise their son, some great dogs and possibly some horses in the future. The existing house needed to be brought up to the 21st Century with lots of upgrades. Cliff Cinamon of Design & Remodeling Solutions was brought in to figure out how to fix up the home for the family.
Cliff had his work cut out for him. There's too much to list here, but work included enlarging the kitchen and creating an open floorplan including the kitchen, living area and dining area. This required the removal of walls and replacing with beams and archways. Taking out walls and increasing the flow means matching up new floors to existing flooring. We've seen Cliff do this many times with great results, and this project is no different.
The Master Bedroom was spacious, but lacking in closet space. An office near the entrance of the home was converted to a spacious clothing room with custom cabinetry and shelving.
The stairs had to be upgraded to match the new, more modern look of the home, and up those stairs was more work. Several odd built-ins needed to be corrected, and a bathroom was nearly completely redone. The entire house was repainted and popcorn ceilings were removed and made flat.
A back porch was added off of the kitchen and Master Bedroom so the family could enjoy the view and better access the space below.
