We changed the original design of the main living area of this Newton raised ranch home, The green building design plans were calling for an 11’ vaulted ceiling for the new kitchen addition, living room and dining room, with access to a new deck. The finished room would be 25’ x 33’ wide open space. A complete transformation of the main living area.
After Picture, Interior view. This whole home renovation included removing interior walls between existing kitchen, living room and dining room, and adding 8’ x 25’ to the rear of this 25’ x 25’ one story structure, and building a new structure 25’ x 33’ with no supporting interior walls. This required building temporary wall/roof supports to keep front wall and roof in place so we may install new load bearing ridge beam to hold existing front roof in place and support new structural ridge for new gable end rear roof. This would give the interior a new wide open kitchen, dining room and living room area with 11’ high vaulted ceiling. We also finished the basement, and lower level front foyer and hallway. Upgraded electrical service to 200 amp and installed new gas boiler and 3 new zones of forced hot water heat and 2 new A/C system for new addition area and one for bedroom’s over existing garage.
