HOME #4  |  2217 Hilldale Drive |  Kitchen and Bath Remodel

Project Description:

Our clients loved their neighborhood, but their home’s features were not exactly everything they’d dreamed. A common problem in Ann Arbor homes, this one had a small, closed-off kitchen. It lacked function, efficiency, and personality! The bathroom and exterior were also in need of updating.

The Forward team created a more open floor plan that improves the flow of both light and traffic in the kitchen and dining area. This home’s new quirky contemporary look features several custom pieces, including a banquette and built-in shelving.

HOME #5  |  1309 Lutz Avenue |  Whole House Remodel and Addition

Project Description:

Our clients had been looking for a home in the Eberwhite neighborhood of Ann Arbor for years! When this house became available, they jumped at the chance to own it; at the same time, they understood that it would take work to make this a livable home.  Our primary goal for this project was to turn this small house into a more comfortable home that serves the family for years to come.

To begin, the existing house suffered from a failing foundation. Our new design replaced and deepened the foundation for a more functional basement. With a two-story addition, we are able to create a four-bedroom home, including a full master suite. The first floor has been opened up to create a larger front living room with visually connected dining room and kitchen. Architectural detailing aids the transition between spaces with a visual layering effect.  The rear of the home now features a large mudroom entry with a connected laundry room; a spacious new office opens onto a large front entry porch with a view of the neighborhood.
