National Award Winning High-Performance Whole House Remodel in Raleigh, NC

Finding Paradise on Picardy

We were delighted to have the opportunity to take this quaint 1960's brick ranch and transform it into a Whole House Remodeled Green Certified Home with an open floor plan. We had no idea that this project would go on to win the  2013 National Green Certified Project of the Year !

The spectacular granite countertops featured in the kitchen and bathrooms served as the design palette used to create a wonderfully harmonious balance of muted tones throughout the home in this whole house renovation project.

Beautiful natural hardwoods with a No Volatile Organic Compond (VOC) clear coat finish, next generation porcelain tile, and No VOC carpet and paints combine to create a healthy and light-filled living environment.

The home has been equipped with the latest in energy efficient amenities including updated EPA EnergyStar Qualified electrical fixtures and appliances, EPA WaterSense rated toilets and plumbing fixtures, LED lighting, upgraded insulation and air sealing measures, and rain water harvesting.

The carefully orchestrated design elements and focus on eco-conscious features make this home a fresh and smartly appointed Home Paradise. Daylight. Quiet. Energy Efficient. Healthy. Low Maintenance. Aesthetics. It’s a complete transformation.

Apex NC Aging in Place Master Bedroom Suite Addition

Susan and Doug loved their two-story home set on a lovely large and secluded wooded lot in a quiet and centrally located neighborhood in Apex, NC.

They decided that they would retire in the home, but were aware of their need to transition to a first-floor fully accessible living environment as they aged so that they could remain in their home as long as possible. Our solution was to design and build a first-floor Master Bedroom Suite Home Addition that flows seamlessly into the other living areas on their first floor, and also serves to bring more of the “outdoors in”, allowing them to enjoy more of their lovely large wooded back yard and gardens.

The Aging in Place and Special Needs Accessible Master Bedroom Suite Addition transformed their two-story home into a fully accessible and functional 1st Floor retirement home, with guest suites on the 2nd Floor!

The Master Suite Addition features a large master bedroom with generous windows that looks out on the lovely wooded back yard and creates a light and bright interior. The large master bathroom features an amazing tiled barrier-free shower, large closet, free-standing tub, and fully wheelchair accessible water closet.

Beautiful natural finish hardwood floors flow into the fully wheelchair accessible and barrio-free kitchen, dining room, and family room. The large wrap-around deck extends the living space into the large private back yard, and ties the master bedroom in with the screened porch.

Special Features:

  1. Fully Aging in Place and Special Needs Accessible 1st Floor Home.
  2. Generous windows to bring in natural light and the lovely private and wooded back yard.
  3. Energy efficient advanced building science techniques.
  4. Amazing tiled barrier-free shower and master bath.
  5. Integration of sentimental heirloom vanity and several hand-made pottery vessel sinks.
  6. Beautiful natural finish hardwood floors.
  7. Wrap-around deck that extends the barrier-free living spaces into the private back yard.
