The before and after of a home remodeling project


At Tom Trout Inc., performing home remodeling projects is especially rewarding when working with great clients with vision, taste and the ability to make timely decisions. This is the case with this family’s home project, which we are currently wrapping up.

We were hired to perform the project, and the design was a collaborative effort between architect Dennis Williams and the Trout in-house design team. The scope of work included additions and extensive remodeling to replace and expand the kitchen, add a family room with beverage station, add a porch with summer kitchen, update bathrooms, flooring, stairs, fireplace, etc.

Kitchen and Great Room — The old skinny shotgun kitchen was separated from the great room by a solid wall, which was removed. The kitchen was also expanded beyond the original footprint of the home, which required extensive structural reengineering. The great room fireplace wall was also completely updated.

Family Room and Beverage Station — The original family room was demolished, replaced and expanded to include a new beverage station with bar seating.

Covered Porch and Summer Kitchen — A new covered porch with summer kitchen and bar seating was added beyond the family room, overlooking the pool area and lake.

Stairs — The stairs were upgraded to include new iron railings, wood stair treads and accent lighting.
