Project Spotlight: Distinctive Ideas

Matt and Karen’s home had met their needs for many years. The number of bedrooms, bathrooms, and the compact kitchen were sufficient through the early years. Even the basement that was finished by a previous owner was livable. As their family grew, the needs for their home grew as well. It became evident the existing spaces needed modification. The only thing that stood in their way was tackling a whole house renovation.

When Matt and Karen contacted Metzler Home Builders, their list of criteria and ideas was plentiful. For the first floor, they wanted a larger kitchen with space to gather, an eating area for six to eight people and an expanded garage topped the list.

After completing this whole-house renovation project, the homeowners contacted us a few years later to update the basement, and their ideas for modifying this space were abundant, as well. Unique craftsmanship and inventive techniques were used throughout the project. Be sure to check out the pictures found on our website. They may spark some additional ideas.
