Joe and Tracy Wetternach and family
We renovated our house in two phases over ten years with a focus on reorganizing spaces in lieu of an addition. Originally, the back of the first floor was a maze of rooms. We had the space we needed, but not the layout. The first renovation rotated the stairs 90-degrees to free up area, combined two bedrooms into a family room, and doubled the size of the kitchen. Between remodels we re-used old kitchen cabinets and decided to live with the space before tackling the design. The second renovation, completed last year, provided new cabinets and countertops to make it our dream kitchen. Design for both phases was by McMonigal Architects. We did our own millwork, trim, electrical, and painting.
