14th Annual CRA WINNER!
Fred and Carolyn Kennedy were moving to Columbia from Atlanta to be close to their daughter and her family. Since their daughter recently renovated their home and was happy with the results, the Kennedy's decided to use the same architect, Josh Allison, and construction company, Gallup & LaFitte.
The scope of work was a total transformation inside and out as the home was about 45 years old and had never been updated. On the exterior, the shingles were replaced with high-end architectural shingles. All windows and doors on the house were replaced with premium wood Jeldwen windows and mahogany entry units. A stone masonry fireplace and chimney were added to a study in the front of the home. On the exterior of the home, cedar beam accents were installed over the front entry and windows. On the garage, mahogany bi-swing garage doors were custom built and installed as well as a matching mahogany gate with a custom copper cap. Gallup & LaFitte utilized penny-groove siding accents at the front entry and rear staircase in the courtyard. They installed stone sidewalks and porches as well on the exterior of the home.
On the interior, the entry foyer was completely up-fitted with a new stairway with beautiful detail work on the handrails, stair parts, and a beautiful bank of windows over the stairway. The kitchen was updated with new shaker style custom cabinets, and new granite couter tops in the kitchen and throughout the home. They further updated the kitchen with new appliances and fixtures. The study is located off the kitchen and has high-vaulted ceilings with stained 1" x 6" toungue and groove V-Groove planks, beautiful built-ins and a stone masonry fireplace with a reclaimed wood mantel.
All of the bathrooms were updated with new vanities, granite tops, plumbing fixtures, tile/marble showers and floors, new light fixtures, and new mirrors. The remaining rooms throughout the home are trimmed out in a manner equally as impressive. No stone was left unturned in this one-of-a-kind renovation project, and the Kennedy's are on the same street as their daughter and her family!
