Mountain Lakes House
KEEPING TO THE FLOOR PLAN: RECONFIGURE AND RESTORE A MOUNTAIN LAKES HOME
A thorough, cost effective renovation of a classic Mountain Lakes NJ home creating a new space on a fixed budget without adding square footage.
Initially a proposal and plan for a large 2-story addition was created. This was revised to a 1-story addition which eventually evolved into a plan for alterations and improvements to the existing house. The homeowners concluded they could realize their goals and stay within budget by reconfiguring and making improvements to the original floor plan without adding square footage.
Keeping the family in the home: Adapting living quarters for the family during the process:
Prior to demolition, careful measures were taken so the homeowners could remain in their home during the course of the project. Protective plastic coverings and temporary walls were erected to segregate the work area from the living area. Also a temporary kitchen was set-up in the center hall while the new kitchen was being installed.
