Open living in a 1960’s split-level
One of the most popular goals that many of our clients have is to open up the space of their home. We can accomplish this by either removing some walls or re-arranging the layout of a floor or even adding a small addition.
In this 1960’s built Bridgewater Split level home, our team removed 3 interior walls to combine a 11 ft. x 12ft kitchen with a 11ft. x 12ft. dining room and opened up the wall to the living room as well. The result was a large family gathering area, complete with an island with seating for four, a dining table and plenty of lounging space in the adjacent living room.
The space was complete by adding some natural light through 5 foot french door that gave this Bridgewater Family easy access to their yard and swimming pool.
We were very pleased with the high-quality home remodeling job done for us by MFM in the summer of 2011 and found the following practices contributed to that satisfaction: 1. Cusotmer communications: easy access to MFM during construction via numerous methods … in-person, e-mail, phone, easel in home to leave written messages.2. Planning – customers’ needs built into design, design requirements addressed, permits acquired.3. Good documentation: designs, estimates, work permits4. MFM has very good cooperation, coordination, supervision of work by other tradesmen (electrical, plumbing, insualtion, sheetrock, painting).5. Good cooperative relationship with suppliers – to rememdy damaged parts6. Quality of work: skilled and efficient7. Proactive – they suggested opportunities for improvement of plan (for example, convert a window to a door for more sensible access to yard). Flexible with plan changes.A co-worker recommended MFM and I’m so glad I went with them.
