No More Load-Bearing Walls
Removing Load-Bearing Walls
This home had plenty of space but it was fragmented with load bearing walls. Look at the new open-space concept that was created when Parker removed the barriers with remodeling!
The Story Behind Load Bearing Walls
The Client Experience
This family had a spacious home in Laurel, Maryland but the layout was fragmented and the rooms felt small, due to an older design layout that separated each space. By removing many of the dividing walls, the space was completely opened up giving this 1980s home a modern feel!
The client wanted new cabinetry, flooring, tile, appliances, and paint throughout. What used to be several rooms is now one flowing space that can accommodate everything from entertaining, cooking and meal consumption, homework, and even movie night!
This make-over also included a mudroom with new cubbies, and an updated powder room. Now, family and guests have everything they could ask for, on one floor, in one flowing space, with a modern approach to design.
Parker reflects on the project, “With a project of this scope, the design build approach is key. Many contractors provide an estimate and then the project scope begins to slide and the homeowner spends more time and money than intended. We evaluate every aspect of the design before pricing, so that the homeowner has a solid budget and time frame, and ultimately the best remodeling experience possible.”
