This Ranch renovation is ALMOST complete!

I started working on this Madbury, NH house last October. The scope of the project was to renovate this 1950’s ranch into an updated, efficient home improving curb appeal and interior function.

Overall, we removed the entire roof and replaced it with a truss system that allows for cathedral ceilings and an open interior floor plan. We added a section off the side that houses the master bath and closet as well as a small addition off the back to accommodate a mudroom, powder room and breakfast area with access to the backyard.

The homeowners are antique dealers so the entire basement can be used for storage and refurbishing furniture. There is also an opportunity to have another bedroom and in-law apartment in the basement.

The overall square footage is right around 3000sf with 3 bedrooms (including master suite), 2.5 bath, living, dining, kitchen with pantry, sunroom, mudroom, front porch, full basement and 2-car garage.

My clients have been wonderful throughout this project! Unfortunately, we had a very difficult winter and they were not able to start construction until March. In that time, they put on a wedding for their daughter, ran a business, sold their home and lived in temporary housing – all with great perspective and patience. I hope that they love their home and that it meets all their expectations and more!
