This Whole House Remodel turned an average suburban home into a spectacular Maryland Country Farmhouse design. Again balance was the key, Karen and James wanted a home that was as sophisticated as they are but always casual. Special attention was given to the view. On the first day of the project, Karen took me to the top of a hill and told me that she wanted that view from her Kitchen and the Covered Porch. Our contractor removed the hill. We relocated and then angled the Kitchen to face the brand new view. We then, using very traditional post and beam construction methods, designed the Covered Porch. The yard adjacent to the Covered Porch was designed to accept a large tent for entertaining larger numbers. The transformation was incredible, now the home – without that hill – is perfectly situated on the site and enjoys a very picturesque view.
