The Project: Confronted with the frequent homeowner dilemma —“Move” or “Renovate”— the owners of this Colonial Revival in Arlington chose to renovate. An extensive renovation and addition to the existing home provided the opportunity to stay in their beloved neighborhood and enjoy the modern conveniences and quality of life that a new home can offer. About 90% of the existing house was affected by the renovation. Moreover, a two-car garage addition (with new family room and master bedroom suite) and a third floor attic space build-out were incorporated to completely rework the home’s interior function. The owners also sought to enhance the home’s original colonial styling with an intensive face-lift without departing from the colonial theme. New roof dormers, entry portico, a complementary garage addition and a consistent color pallet all worked in concert to transform this home’s curb appeal.
