When designing a whole-house renovation, an important factor to both the client and remodeler is to keep the home from looking like it was “added” on to. In this whole-house project, Corinthian Construction, Fisher, Ind., faced this exact challenge with a home that was in dire need of additional living space.

This early 1900s farm house had a small “lean-to” kitchen on the back of the house, with a small dining room and a small bath/laundry room combo. The team removed the kitchen and laundry area, replacing it with an additional 13 ft. to expand the kitchen and dining room space. Keeping with the original roof plane and width of the structure allowed the addition to appear as if it had always existed.

In addition to the kitchen/dining room expansion, Corinthian Construction was able to utilize the unused office space to give the homeowners a larger laundry room and a separate full bathroom.

By adding additional space to the second floor, the master bedroom doubled in size and a master bath completed this updated suite. The upstairs bathroom was also renovated with custom cabinetry, granite countertops and tiled tub for the addtional bathrooms.

The end result was a beautifully restored 1900s home that kept to the original design of the home with increased living space and updated materials.
