OCEAN FRONT RENOVATION
This ocean front renovation began in the spring of 2013 and finished in August 2013. We began the design and planning in the fall of 2012 with a lot of communication with the out of state owners to make the final decisions and come up with this design. We had to remove the previous addition by hand due to the difficulty in getting any equipment onto the work site. This added to the difficulty of staying on budget and on schedule but we accomplished the goal.
The addition was completely rebuilt using the best available materials and using local suppliers which is very important to me. The roof design used a rubber membrane due to the pitch so that a roof deck can be built to over look the ocean. The insulation was a spray foam for added R value and structural support.The doors and windows were Anderson and the outside wrap around deck used a composite decking with a composite railing system. The composite railing system incorporated a a stainless steel cable package to minimize the maintenance and maximize the view of the ocean.
The interior flooring was a natural hickory as was the kitchen cabinets. The interior cascading stairs was made using the hickory to seamlessly match the floor. The kitchen window trim package was designed to match the crown moldings above the cabinets and the finish on the window was especially sprayed on to match the finish of the cabinets. The trim package on the entry door to the deck was designed to also match the moldings of the kitchen cabinets and kitchen window. The tapered columns were designed to cover the supports to the roof system and add some architectural individuality to the room.
The exterior trim package was designed to use only a Azeck composite package to minimize the maintenance. The siding was a red cedar clapboard for a natural wood look and feel.
This project was made possible by the cooperation of a great team of local subcontractors and suppliers. A special thanks goes out to the incredibly talented Richard Brown who is a life long friend and most trusted business partner who made this project possible.
