Renovating for a fluid space
For their project, Andrew and Ashley were looking to swap the locations of their kitchen and dining room and give the entire space an open-concept layout. This involved removing the load bearing wall that separated the kitchen and dining room and installing a structural beam, replacing the flooring throughout the main floor, adding in a coffee bar, replacing the kitchen cabinets, and modernizing all of the trim and lighting throughout the main floor.
Despite the extensive nature of this renovation, the project was a major success. Challenges during construction did come up, such as needing to make additional framing changes and adjusting the spec for the structural beam when they decided to enlarge the space where the load bearing wall had previously been.
But with general contractor Jorge from Hogar at Home consistently being on board with making the changes that would result in a more comfortable living space, issues were quickly met with solutions and Andrew and Ashley can enjoy their new and open home.
