Suncrest Homes wins 2008 Housing Excellence Award for a challenging home remodel
Long known as a builder of quality custom and semi-custom homes, Suncrest Homes also is a home remodeler. Suncrest Homes’ skill as a remodeler was recognized when it won a 2008 Housing Excellence Award from the Builders Association of Metropolitan Pittsburgh (BAMP) for the Best Room Addition under $150,000.
Our winning entry was an addition to and renovation of a Craftsman-style home with an unusually large front roof overhang on a steep and narrow lot. (See photo below.) A deteriorated building envelope and a subsiding and cracking foundation and retaining wall posed additional challenges.
Home before the remodel.As part of the renovation, a large amount of soil was removed in front of the building to make room for a new two-car attached garage, parking pad and driveway. The front of the home was extended eight feet. With increased square footage, the master bedroom, entry foyer and study were enlarged and updated. The laundry room was also moved to a more accessible location.
The changes transformed the dated, poorly designed dwelling to a fresh, attractive home with a modern Craftman-style facade (See photo below.) and interior details and updated and enlarged rooms. The remodel also improved the floor plan, access to the front entry, curb appeal and property value.
Home after the remodel.Quality materials were used that enhance the home’s appearance and will reduce maintenance. Accepting the award for Suncrest Homes, Colleen Ruefle-Haley, Vice President, remarked that the project was challenging, but, “we and the owner are delighted with the results. The house really had a lot of hidden potential that we were unable to uncover.”
