Smith Renovation - Bon Aire Subdivision - Frankfort, KY
Bill and Connie are both semi-retired and may times spend a few of the cold months in Florida. They looked at a number of new properties in the Frankfort area but they really loved their existing home in this upscale established neighborhood. The home was now a bit dated in that it was relatively small, and had the old carport style, with out an enclosed garage or much storage space.
Like all of us in our middle ages, they have accumulated lots of “stuff” that they just did not have any place for. They knew they did not want to move into a new home and probably wanted an “extreme makeover” on their existing home… but really did not know where to start. In comes CMA!
We toured the Smiths existing home located on Fairway Drive in the Bon Aire Subdivision in Frankfort and came up with possible solutions for their wants and needs. Change that old dated look from the street to add “curb appeal”! Build a full 2-1/2 car garage for those cold mornings and for additional storage. Bill is very athletic and an avid runner so he needed an exercise room for all his “stuff”. Connie is very craft oriented and needed her own place to work on her projects. What about those guests that often pop-in? They added a nice bedroom and bath suite away from the master bedroom for added privacy. We took that laundry room out of the kitchen and added a dedicated laundry room. Lots of great changes!
This was an interesting project that included demolition of an existing one story carport and the addition of a 2-story 1,800 square foot addition.
The amenities include a new 2 1/2 car garage, exercise room, laundry room and renovation of the half bath. The second floor features a large craft room, mother in law bedroom suite, full bath, old screened in porch and roof were removed and a new porch added. Much of the existing living area was painted and the baths were upgraded with new fixtures and faucets.
Addition/Remodel Cost: $126,000
Total Sq Footage: 1,820
Total Cost Per Sq Ft: $70
