Transitional Family Room Without the TV
"Our finished home exceeds all expectations we had regarding its potential. Everyone loves what you two [Rocky and Gigi] have done. I also wanted to express how grateful we are that you kept accurate paperwork, gave us weekly status updates and did exactly what you said you would do. After our experience with the contractor for the exterior work on our home, I suspect those qualities are relatively hard to find in the construction industry."
— Paul Goodwin, Homeowner
The original fieldstone fireplace architecturally overwhelmed this home's main level and was aesthetically at odds with our client's desire for a more sophisticated look. As part of a whole house remodel, we first replaced the field stone fireplace base with dry-stacked limestone. A new, more elegant upper cabinet was designed to replace the original heavy-looking, cherry ply paneling. Recessed panels were incorporated as part of the cabinet to soften its overall profile — giving it architectural interest and providing the depth needed for a TV. Doors slide closed to disguise the TV when not in use for a cleaner look. The original solid cherry mantel was reintroduced completing this room's transitional aesthetic.
