Summer Ready Lake House


Sometimes we all need a reset, and we look forward to summer vacations to reset our minds, seeking to quiet chaos of daily life and embrace calm relaxation.  Our homes often need a reset, too.  Hectic schedules and busy days take a toll on our homes and then, in turn, the state of the home takes a toll on us.  This can be a never-ending cycle, causing stress and frustration.  Just like planning a vacation to reset your mind, a well designed remodel of your house can help to reset home.  Check out this project we recently finished, taking this home from harried to harmonious.

While this home had an open concept, there were many features of the layout that left much to be desired.  With the kitchen tucked away in a crowded corner, there was very little countertop space and it looked cramped and like an afterthought in the floorplan.  The inadequate kitchen storage created problems with clutter building up on the limited countertop space, and with it being so dark and small, it felt very out of sync with the living room and dining area.

By extending the kitchen and taking out a poorly placed closet, H&H opened up this space and gave it a completely new look.  Instead of a dark, cramped kitchen, our clients now have an open kitchen with a massive island, loads of storage and plenty of countertop space.  The old tile and wood floors were removed and replaced with hand scraped wood throughout the space, giving it a cohesive look and feel.

Taking in the existing back porch and installing stunning new columns and archways made this room into a statement piece.  Abundant windows out the back of the house provide tremendous views of the lake and bring in ample natural light. This space is perfectly designed for hosting family and friends, supplying space enough for each and every guest.  You can just imagine the family gathering at the expansive windows to admire beautiful sunsets over the lake.

Imagine going from the small, cramped kitchen to this beautifully functional design.  With fifteen drawers and ample upper and lower cabinets, this kitchen has space for everything a chef needs.  The new oversized appliances are just begging to be filled and used to create culinary masterpieces.   With space for the whole family to help, many memories will be made in this fabulous kitchen.
