Ren­o­va­tion would pre­serve the struc­ture while in­cor­po­rat­ing tra­di­tional Crafts­man de­sign. “Our main goal was to make it look like we had re­stored a 100-year-old house,” says Dale Peek. Up­grad­ing the kitchen and mas­ter suite, and adding mo­tifs with per­sonal mean­ing, were also on the agenda.

• Us­ing pe­riod-in­spired ma­te­ri­als, de­tail­ing, and se­lec­tions in or­der to cre­ate the il­lu­sion of a restora­tion.

• Re­plac­ing the skimpy front porch with one that in­cor­po­rates bun­ga­low-era de­tails.

• In­te­grat­ing stained glass as a de­sign el­e­ment for the house.

• Re­lo­cat­ing the laun­dry from the base­ment to the ad­di­tion.

• Adding a home office area on the main floor.

• Re­design­ing the kitchen to flow bet­ter with the din­ing and fam­ily rooms, and adding pantry space nearby.

• Creat­ing a work­shop and gar­den room near but apart from the garage.

• Im­prov­ing the mas­ter suite with a larger bath­room and closet.

• Creat­ing a new main level pow­der room.

• Re­plac­ing the out-of-code stair­way with one that made a state­ment and helped ex­press the A&C pe­riod.

• Up­grad­ing the roof­ing, doors, win­dows, and sid­ing, cor­rect­ing any fail­ures as well as mov­ing to­ward pe­riod de­sign.

• Re­design­ing the drive­way to al­low for park­ing near the front door, in ad­di­tion to the drive-un­der garage.

• Creat­ing a new land­scap­ing plan in­clud­ing a koi pond.

Art-glass win­dows are a fo­cal point in the view through the colon­nade. The orig­i­nal wall ended with­out a proper door­way, and made rooms feel small. BE­FORE
