Photo Studio & Family Room Home Addition

Homeowners Richard and Christina Stefani attended a C&R Kitchen and Bath Seminar with the full intention of remodeling their kitchen. However, they came away intrigued with the idea of building a back yard studio. Their new studio ingeniously connects to the main house via a porch/breezeway/deck providing a separate, sheltered entry to the studio for clients and visitors. Richard is so pleased with this space that he recently quipped, “If I saw this and it wasn’t mine, I would be jealous!”

Richard is an award-winning photographer and the structure was designed to provide a separate, designated workspace. Once the room was built, it became much more. According to Christina, “we use it as a client consultation room, shooting area for people and products, a gallery, an extra family room, a movie theater (we project movies and old-fashioned slide shows/multimedia presentations on the smooth back wall), and even hold dinner parties in it. It really is multi-purpose.”

“We needed more room but our historic home did not lend itself to a stereotypical addition. C&R Remodeling showed us how we could have a separate yet attached family room and studio that would blend with our home and surroundings. We know a lot of people say this, but getting the beautiful family room with a fireplace is far beyond what we had hoped. Everything has been absolutely perfect and we couldn’t be happier with the whole experience!”

From the initial meeting with Beth to the closeout visit, working with C&R was a pleasure. Beth listened, offered advice, and was willing to work within our budget. Every worker who came to our home was punctual, courteous, and cleaned up each day. We truly could not have asked for a better experience!

Excellent service and workmanship. We could not be happier with our kitchen remodel. Beth helped design the perfect kitchen and our Lead Carpenter completed the work in a timely and professional manner. Everyone we came in contact with at C&R was great—we are already working with them on a second project!
