Woodsy Charm Home Remodel in Kensington
2019 Remmies Award Winner
This is our second large remodel with HDR. A few years ago they renovated the top floor of our house, and we recently had them back to work on the basement where we carved out a new bedroom from a family room... completely gutted and built a new bathroom, added built-in bookcases, and installed new oak trim throughout. It was a large, 4 month construction project. They're not the cheapest out there, but paying a little more buys a lot of peace of mind. The workmanship is excellent and the project was on time and on budget.

We were ecstatic to take on this lower level remodel for one of our favorite return clients. Having already remodeled much of the upper level, we were familiar with their unique craftsman tastes and appreciation for beautiful wood work. Our in-house design team re-worked the floor plan to create an additional bedroom, make the family/media room more functional, and significantly upgraded the existing lower level bedroom and bath. The addition of custom bookshelves and beautiful pocket doors allows for connection between the new bedroom and the media room when desired, and privacy when needed. The existing bedroom had an awkward utility box along one wall which was re-imagined into a stunning wood bench and reading nook. The desperately outdated bathroom was revitalized with a new vision, carefully curated to meet modern functionality and design while staying true to the whimsical "woodsy" charm of the client's personal aesthetic.
