Mequon Transitional Whole House Remodel

Project Overview

Our clients built this home 30 years ago, but after raising their family here, it was time for them to start preparing for the future and consider their solutions for aging in place. The project goal was to give the home a total transfor­mation, and there wasn’t one inch of the home that wasn’t touched.

We substan­tially remodeled the first floor, moving the kitchen, laundry, dining room, and powder room to new locations, and a previously under-used sunroom was converted into additional kitchen space. A guest bedroom and bathroom were converted to a suite, allowing the owners to live fully on the first floor in the future, if desired. The second-floor remodel was primarily aesthetic, with exception of a re-design of the primary suite. The lower level was also fully updated, with the addition of a powder room and custom walnut bar, featuring a reclaimed and refinished mahogany top which had specific sentimental value to our client.

Finishes and fixtures throughout this home are of the highest quality and are intended to create an atmosphere of comfort and luxury throughout.

This whole house remodel has so much detailing throughout the home, as well as many luxury amenities. Between the woodwork, applied moldings, steam showers, and a one-of-a-kind custom walnut range hood, this home got the beautiful transfor­mation the couple was looking for. The rooms in the home make sense, such as a first floor and second floor master suite, a casual and formal dining area, an office with built-ins to display precious memorabilia, and some cubbies sectioned off for their grandchildren to use during their visits.
