New Deck, Porch Roof, Columns And Rails

***

Before:

After:

The existing concrete slab in the backyard wasn’t very appealing, and there was no shelter from the sun and the rain!

The owners of this house wanted a new wood deck with a porch roof  above, supported by round columns.  Big Woods Remodeling completed that project in the summer of 2014.

At the owners’ request, we returned in the spring of 2015 to add the balustrade between the columns.   The balustrade components (balusters, rails, newel posts and trim) are all fiberglass products manufactured by Fypon.

Screened Porch Becomes Fabulous Living Space

Before:

After:

The difference between the before and after pictures is hard to believe, but it is quite real!  Big Woods Remodeling provided this remarkable transformation, including a remodeling of the kitchen, to a house in Chapel Hill, NC during the summer of 2014.

The screened porch was a rarely used outdoor space just off the kitchen area, and the owners wanted to make it part of their home by turning it into a sun room/family room.

The existing windows and exterior door were removed and reinstalled into the newly built exterior walls.  The brick was carefully removed, cleaned and used in the new exterior as well.

Before:

After:

A direct vent gas log fireplace was added with thin veneer ledgestone masonry, and the flat screen TV is mounted on the stone above the fireplace.  Also, the porch ceiling was rebuilt to incorporate an octagonal tray ceiling with a concealed rope light hidden within the crown molding detail.

Round, Tuscan-style structural columns were added to support the new beams and existing roof above.  Existing tile floor in kitchen and screened porch was replaced with Red Oak hardwood flooring throughout to match existing floors in the house.

Some of the existing cabinets were modified, including the addition of an ice-maker in the island.  Then, a new Granite counter top was installed on the island, wallpaper and old tile backsplash were removed, and a new marble backsplash (with mosaic over cooktop) was added to complete the transformation.

Many thanks to Home Front Interiors of Chapel Hill for design consultation, also to Accent Hardwood Flooring, Stonehenge Masonry  for their contributions to this successful project.

New Deck With Cable Rails At Modernist House!

Designed and built by Big Woods Remodeling in January 2014, this deck is a nice enhancement to this original 1950′s post-modernist house in Durham, NC.  Stainless steel cables with galvanized posts and rail caps complete the contemporary look.

Here are more pictures of the completed project:

3-Car Garage Addition

Before:

After:

This large 30′x45′ 3-car garage in Chapel Hill was custom-designed and built by Big Woods Remodeling in 2013.  The owner desired a contemporary/modern look, so we started with a clerestory design, and added the standing-seam galvanized steel roofing material.  Plenty of room for vehicles and workshop/tool storage.

A door was added from the existing laundry room into the new garage for easy access to and from the home.  Also, a trench drain was installed in the concrete slab in front of the overhead doors to collect and remove the rainwater runoff from the driveway.

New Attic Office With Dormer & 1/2 Bath

Before:

After:

A new office space with 1/2 bath and wet bar was needed in the third floor attic space of this Cary, NC home.  In order to provide the owner with plenty of office and sitting area, a large dormer with a triple window unit was added by removing a big section of the rear roof of the house.

Here are a couple of pics of the dormer framing as viewed from the backyard:

Isonene spray foam insulation was used to seal the entire attic, which maximized the energy efficiency of not only the new 3rd floor space, but also helped with the conditioning of the existing second floor as well.  Project completed in August of 2013.
