Additions & Renovations

Getting tired of the look of your house? Looking for a change without looking to move? Here are some examples of work that you could have done to your home. Below are pictures of some of our past projects. Will yours be next?


Large Additions & Renovations

Looking to make a big change and really increase your livable space, then a large addition is best for you. Large renovation projects are also a great way to totally change the look or layout of your home. Large additions can include adding another living room, bedroom, in-law suite, or even adding an entire level. Large renovations may include fully gutting and remodeling any room in your home, kitchen, bathroom, living room, bedroom, master suite, etc.

Here are some before and after pictures of large additions and renovations we have done.

Small Additions & Renovations

Don't let the title of this type of work throw you off. Although, these are examples of small additions and renovations, the impact that it makes on your home to do such a small change is monumental. Adding any amount square footage to your home or simply renovating a current space is going to increase your property value. Small additions may include the addition or expansion of a bedroom, an updated larger kitchen, increasing the size of a bedroom or living room, or simply adding a new entry way that didn't previously exist. Small renovations may include giving your bathroom a facelift, putting in new flooring or windows, or changing out the cabinets in your kitchen. The options and possibilities are endless.

Here are some before and after pictures of small additions and renovations we have done.

Exterior Face Lifts

A less expansive yet very noticable way to give your home a fresh new look is with a "face lift". A face lift to the front of or entire exterior of your home can increase your curb appeal while providing you with a more modern, tranquil and esthetic look to come home to. Such a job can include updating the windows, doors and siding, or adding an all new entry way.

Here are some before and after pictures of exterior face lifts we have done.

New siding, windows and doors. Added a front porch. Craftsman style stone and columns on house and garage.

Kitchens & Baths

G & L takes great pride in their kitchen and bathroom remodels. Known for paying close attention to every detail from the design of the layout to the placement of each cabinet knob, Glenn puts a lot of care into each kitchen and bathroom he remodels. Below is just a small sample of the many exquisite kitchen and bathroom remodels or additions that G & L has done.

   
   

 
Note the custom corner cabinet. Great use of extra space!! Also, doorway between two rooms was not originally an arch, Glenn was able to add that architectural detail.

 
Travertine tile layout was designed by homeowner.
Homeowners can be as involved or uninvolved in the design process as they'd like.

 

 
Note the custom shelves beside the shower. One of Glenn's signature design elements is his creative use of extra space.

Decks and Porches

If you are looking to add living space to your home but don't want to undergo an addition then adding a deck may be a good solution. The addition of a deck or porch is a great way to increase your livable space and add value to your home. Deck designs can be as simple or as complex as you want and may include built in hot tubs, bench seating, or planter boxes.



Here are some examples of screened-in porches that will give an outdoor living space without pesky bugs:
