If you've been following along on my instagram (if you’re not following already, it’s time… @thislacelife), you’ll know that I am super excited about a project up on Oak Bluff Road. Like - S U P E R E X C I T E D!
Oak Bluff is probably the best neighborhood in Brandon (in my opinion). It’s older, so it has beautiful mature trees, the lots are massive - I think most are at least an acre, and the houses are all unique + different. Am I the only one that isn’t a fan of neighborhoods where it’s just the same house over and over again? (I’m sorry, but snoozefest). Now, the final and most exciting part about Oak Bluff is that, a lot of the houses are outdated and need renovating!! W H O O P I E!! Yes this is a good thing; because…renovations = my design jam.
Because this neighborhood is so amazing, is has been a popular trend in the past few years to buy a Oak Bluff house and reno the bejeezes out of it. And that is exactly what my incredible clients and I are doing. From drab to Modern Farmhouse / Scandinavian / Little Boy Proof amazing-ness!
This project was a complete gut and re-configuration of main floor. Everything has moved. The stairs, the main entry, even the garage. And if that wasn’t enough, a large addition is also in the works. Check out the before and after of the floor plans…
The flow of the house is so much more open and functional now. The master suite as now taken over the existing garage, and a new 3 car garage along with mudroom, laundry, powder room and the new main entry will be added at the opposite end. And can I just give a shout out to the windows…the beautifully massive windows. I am completely obsessed with them. Seriously.
We are now at the stage where finishes and cabinery are going into the existing part of the house while the exterior frame of the addition is constructed. It’s so exciting to see the design come to life! I can hardly wait to see the end product! Stay tuned!
