Remodeling Your Home

It really pays off to use an architect to design your home remodel.   This design is for one of our clients renovating their home that was damaged by fire.  

The fire damaged one wing on the house, so we are replacing it with a new two-story addition.  The addition is designed to closely match the existing house while taking advantage of the opportunity to make updates to the floor plan.

The ground floor has an open kitchen and generous pantry, as well as a breakfast nook overlooking a three season porch.  A new two-story tower will conveniently house a stairway to the second floor Master Bedroom and a sitting area above the porch below.

Are you planning a home remodel?  Here are some topics Bonin Architects will discuss with you:

Spatial changes / additions
Structural improvements and updates for code compliance
System updates (electrical, plumbing, heating)
Insulation and energy savings
Existing site challenges

We’ll also ask you about any adjustments in living requirements or accessibility issues you may need to accommodate, and discuss at length a list of “green” options you have, including any materials that can be reused or recycled in the project.

Bonin Architects recently won two awards from the American Institute of Architects for a cottage renovation project we completed in New London, NH.  We’d love to design your award-winning home!
