Renovation of the 1955 ranch home In the heart of history, where the echoes of 1955 once lingered, a humble ranch stood with promises of a bygone era. Enter Keen Building Company, a beacon of innovation, ready to breathe new life into this vintage dwelling. The task at hand: a complete renovation, a modern rebirth, and a harmonious integration of a new second level. Join us as we unravel the narrative of this timeless transformation.
Keen Building Company embarked on a journey to reimagine every nook and cranny of this one-story ranch. The objective was clear – preserve the essence of the past while ushering in the conveniences of the present. The entire interior was gutted and replaced with fine modern finishes, marking the beginning of a meticulous transformation.
Adding a second level to the structure required careful consideration to maintain the home's footprint and ensure optimal flow. Keen Building Company approached this challenge with a keen eye for strategic integration, ensuring that the new space seamlessly blended with the existing structure. The result? A cohesive masterpiece that paid homage to the past and embraced the present.
A key mission for the client was to create a primary suite on the new second floor – a haven of luxury and comfort. The en-suite bathroom became a showcase of opulence with handpicked tiles imported from Italy and floating shelves that added a touch of modern sophistication.
With structural challenges overcome, the meticulous process of aligning and matching each door, window, finish, trim element, and fixture throughout the project ensued. The foyer, a masterpiece of exquisite craftsmanship, set the stage for the comprehensive modern outcome, even including a suite for the family dog.
Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP) was employed throughout the house, enhancing both durability and a sleek, modern aesthetic. The foyer became a true showstopper with custom railings, a highly visible centerpiece light fixture, and a symphony of exquisite craftsmanship that welcomed guests into the transformed space.
The existing family room, once a challenge, became a triumph in transformation. Windows were replaced and enlarged, allowing natural light to flood the space. A custom-crafted fireplace mantle with a gas fireplace insert and AV hookup became the focal point, connecting the interior to the outdoor living area through large-pane glass.
The outdoor living space was a client priority, and Keen Building Company delivered with a commercial-grade gas line serving a 10ft gas fire pit. The symphony of large angular glass and fine hardscaping created a harmonious balance, resulting in a space cherished by both the homeowners and the builders.
Keen Building Company's renovation of the 1955 ranch home stands as a testament to thoughtful design, meticulous craftsmanship, and the seamless integration of history and modernity. From the luxurious second-floor retreat to the showstopper foyer and the breathtaking outdoor living oasis, every element tells a story of transformation and triumph. The result is not just a house; it's a timeless masterpiece that captures the essence of the past while embracing the comforts of the present.
