2016 Region 2 Southeast CotY Award Winner & NATIONAL CotY Award Winner, Entire House Under $250,000
This small cottage had many haphazard additions built by multiple contractors over the years. We wanted to create a more open flow through the house and make it feel less cramped, without making the house too large for the neighborhood. The common bottlenecks were in the kitchen and the master bathroom. To improve flow, we opened up doorways and ceilings to reduce the closed-in feeling of the house. We also added dormers that are open to the kitchen and the master bathroom to let in more natural light.
