Remodeling on Center Street

Remodeling on Center Street

For anyone who has dreamed about remodeling a home, this is the post for you. Don’t leave without experiencing the virtual tours!

Where we began…

The Woodland Heights neighborhood is brimming with homes undergoing updating, clean up, and full blown renovation. This project by Coluzzi Construction was no different. This home began as a 2 bed / 1 bath with dingy white stucco and  green accents. Wood paneling dominated the interior. The bathroom had a clunky and cramped layout and let’s not even get started on the flooring! On a positive note, the home’s many windows gave way to a bright atmosphere. The pictures here show a lot, but walk through the “before” yourself with our 3D virtual tour.

What happened next…

This home called for a full-scale remodel. That meant completely gutting it down to the studs. Our architect took the liberty of moving walls to create a more open kitchen layout We even found space for a third bedroom AND moved the laundry room to the main floor. No more teetering up and down old basement stairs with a huge laundry basket. That’s just asking for a broken ankle.

But we couldn’t stop at the interior… After ripping off the exterior stucco, colorful and unique boards were uncovered. How cool is that?!

Walk around the project in progress with our virtual tour. Challenge yourself to find the hidden acorn if you need some more entertainment!

We made it!

Check out the finished home complete with staging furniture fresh new features! With some rearranging, the bathroom is no longer hidden and there are three gorgeous bedrooms.
