Triple Level Remodeling

Innovative Design Captures Unused Atrium Space

The greatest remodeling designs make the best use of existing space. For this project, an open-air atrium in the center of the house was space waiting to be claimed for a better purpose. The homeowners wanted and needed more storage, casual seating, and additional workspace in the kitchen. They also hoped to have a more open floor plan for better family times together.
We proposed closing in the atrium, creating additional indoor space on both the ground floor and the second floor. A third-floor observatory turned out to be an added bonus.

First Floor Kitchen Remodel

We relocated the refrigerator to the area once occupied by a two-story atrium. We also were able to build a walk-in pantry with lots of storage and workspace.

Second Floor New Home Office

On the second floor, we created a space that is now a home office conveniently connected to other rooms on the same level.

Third Floor Observatory

The most unique and intriguing feature of this remodel is the spiral staircase leading up to an observatory featuring a wrap-around deck. It is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the 360-degree valley views.

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!
