Renovated Basement With Garage Door Patio Access
This spacious basement renovation features a garage door that links together indoor and outdoor spaces, allowing for easy transition between the pool table area and covered patio. The adjacent great room provides additional space for relaxing and entertaining.
Modern Gray Home Exterior With Garage Door Entrance and Stone Walkway
This modern home uses a glass paneled garage door for a unique access door from the living room to the outdoors. Light stone steps lead to the darker gray tiled walkway creating a patio area. Mulched sections allow for rows of plants adding color next to the home.
Transitional Basement Great Room With Nearby Pool Table
This spacious basement renovation included the addition of a great room, complete with a brown L-shaped sofa and striped chaise lounge. The exposed beam ceiling completes the look of the space, while a nearby garage door offers natural light and adds an industrial look to a pool table area.
The Graham residence after the kitchen renovation by licensed contractor Chip Wade. As part of the renovation, Chip Wade added some personal details including custom welded initials of the homeowners in the seating area around the fireplace. With the addition of a garage door for easy indoor/outdoor access, a custom concrete table and all new appliances, the kitchen area is now perfect for entertaining large groups, as seen on HGTV's Elbow Room.
The homeowners of this 1930s Tudor wanted a modest renovation to improve their kitchen and open the space to the rest of the house. As the project continued to evolve, renovations continued into to the family room, guest room, bathroom, main entry, sunroom, dining room, art room and a new breakfast room. The garage is laid out at an angle to the original family room, opening up the courtyard for vehicles and providing access to a mudroom door and the side turret entrance.
It’s hard to imagine now, but this charming living space was once an unassuming commercial garage. To make the most of the compact, 1,260-square-foot space (including an upstairs loft area), Frazier Associates minimized the number of walls within. Exposed brick walls and concrete flooring on the first floor were retained and a new staircase, crafted of reclaimed wood and metal railing, was designed for access to the second floor. "Providing more natural light was the biggest design challenge," say the designers. "A new recessed patio was designed behind the historic garage doors to allow for more light on the first floor, as well as to create a front entrance and a small exterior seating area."
Jewelry Tower and Chandelier in Contemporary Luxury Dressing Room
This newly renovated, turn of the century home has been given an upgrade. The homeowner has decided to turn an underused second story patio into a luxury dressing room. These elegant French doors lead from the home's newly renovated master bathroom into the new custom closet. Upon entering the space, one of the more stunning features is present-a custom built jewelry tower. This tower is complete with lighted drawers so that the homeowner has easy access to all of her favorite pieces. The chandelier that hangs from the ceiling, while elegant and stylish, is also functional and helps to provide extra light to the space.
