Mary and Gary’s goal for their extensive remodel and addition was to have a thoroughly updated home that didn’t look like a remodel. Working with a design by Elevation Architects that completely re-imagined the home, Rich collaborated closely with the couple and the architect, integrating architectural details and blending finishes while respecting the home’s heritage and retaining its mid-century modern look and feel.
During construction of the new master bedroom suite, an interesting challenge came up: how to build a new bath, closet and private reading room around a structurally necessary curved-wall feature. Rich tackled the problem with typical aplomb, and the curved concrete reading room is now one of Mary’s favorite spaces in the home. “We had confidence in Rich’s ‘we’ll make it work’ approach,” says Gary, “and he exceeded our expectations.”
Gary says he’d hire Rich again in a heartbeat. “He can look at a scale of a project and understand where there might be issues, and make you feel comfortable in that it’s going to be done right,” says Gary. “Rich handles everything with precision.”
