The Ridge Project was a home renovation. The client had three main goals: a complete update of all existing areas of the home, increasing the amount of light by opening up the space, and incorporating natural and contemporary elements.
The project presented a big structural challenge. The house had settled on one side and dropped the main floor by 3 inches. This, in turn, caused the master shower to leak out the front wall of the house every time it was used. Our solution was to install a false sub-floor over the sloping one. This allowed us to create a level surface on which we could properly install tile and cabinetry. To help keep costs down, we interlaced new hardwood floor with the original wood floor.
The fireplace was moved from an exterior wall to a corner. We added greystone to the fireplace as part of the client’s request to incorporate natural elements. The exterior wall was re-framed with new windows, allowing more light into the space and enabling spectacular sunset views.
Opening up the kitchen allowed more people to be involved in food preparation. The floor-to-ceiling shower enclosure and the clean lines of the free-standing tub enhance the open and uncluttered feeling of the master bathroom.
