Icing on the Cake

Tue, 09/18/2018 - 14:16

An article in Home & Design‘s October issue tells the story of “The Wedding Cake House” located in Cleveland Park, WA. Although full of character and historic charm, the house was in need of repairs. Removing a wall that separated the kitchen from a small mudroom by the back door, and enlarging a bank of existing windows with new Marvin windows helped to open up the space. More windows also helped visually connect the room to the backyard.

Lofty Ambition

Qualified Remodeler published a story about a family home in Evanston, IL, purchased with intentions to remodel only the kitchen and add living space out back. The homeowners didn’t want to take on too much at once, thinking they would revisit a third-floor renovation at a later time.

As the couple’s design/build company began its planning, the renovation became much more extensive. They relocated the main staircase, removed the house’s chimney, and built a second entrance into the house. Marvin windows helped complete the remodel, built to match the authentic style of the home.

“Often categorized as tech-savvy and open-minded (and occasionally entitled), millennials are focused on something slightly less tangible than boomers’ goals: the experience,” Marvin said. “This generation is de-emphasizing size and investing in an experience in their homes, with features such as walls of glass to bring the outdoors in, automation for everything from entertainment to security, sensors to monitor performance, and enthusiasm for shared solar gardens.”
