Charlotte and Dennis, the owners of a hundred-year-old farmhouse in West Linn, Oregon, came to New Avenue with the goal of remodeling their home. They wanted to make it into a place where they could live as they grew older. They also wanted to update the home and bring it up to code.
A New Avenue partner architect created plans that would turn the home into a place where the owners could age in place. That meant bringing a new master bedroom to the ground floor. The couple also wanted an accessible bathroom.
Also on the must-have list was an improved space for entertaining. To make the home fit a modern lifestyle, our New Avenue designer opened up the dining and living areas. The kitchen got new pantry space and a half bath.
To make the home ready to sell in the future, the sewer connection, which the city no longer considered legal, had to be modified.
With these plans, this hundred-year-old farmhouse will become a place where the owners can stay for many more years. The improved storage space, bedroom, and common areas will also make the home more appealing to families when it’s time to sell.
The costs for design, permitting, and construction came to $68,777.35. You can see the full budget below.
