The Blue Victorian 
Featured on:

This full-home remodel transformed an underutilized first floor layout into an expansive luxury eat-in kitchen, with custom shaker-style cabinetry, high end appliances and an adjacent new family room addition with a wood burning fireplace. The custom cabinets were designed with hidden features such as a cutting board drawer located directly over a pull out trashcan, and hidden storage for small kitchen appliances. Built-in appliances such as a wine fridge and microwave drawer were inset into the oversized island with rococo quartz countertops to compliment the historic home’s period. Interior trim and finishes were matched with custom molding, and white oak floors were selected to match the existing historical floors found throughout the home.


The homeowners wanted a better solution to dealing with functionality and flow of their downstairs, it all started with the newly added breezeway addition at the rear entry on the home that enters into the custom built mudroom. The family room addition, while only adding 206 square feet, created a separate space for entertaining and expanded kitchen with an optimized layout. Other work performed on this full-home remodel include a custom entry mudroom, professional laundry room, home office, 4 redesigned bathrooms and bedrooms including a fully remolded luxury master bedroom suite with a newly redesigned master bath and 103 square foot walk-in closet.

"We are so thrilled with the full renovation of our home!  We were a little afraid to strip it down to the studs, but the work your team did from architectural design to the finish work resulted in a beautiful home.  We were so impressed with all of your carpenters and contractors that worked on the job.  We truly appreciated their knowledge and expertise!  They treated this project as if they were working on their own home.  More times than I can count, I witnessed people taking an extra step to make sure the outcome of everything was perfect!  There were so many decisions we had to make along the way that could have been overwhelming, but you provided us with options and pricing that helped us make the choice that suited our needs.  We were also so impressed that you were so available every time we reached out.  It was amazing how fast you returned emails, texts and phone calls!  

Thank you for building us a new home in the shell of a beautiful 120 year old Victorian!  It’s the perfect balance of old world and new age, we can’t thank you enough!"
