New stamped concrete porch floor, steps and walkways connecting the front and side porches. New Unilock paver patio and cedar pergola on the side of the home.

Kitchen & Great Room Remodel
Kitchen & Great Room Remodel

The owner of this home wanted to interact with family while cooking in the kitchen and the floor plan of their home didn’t make this possible. A wall between the kitchen offered a see-through fireplace and open niches above the shelves, it just didn’t offer the open plan they desired. Out came the old fireplace wall and in came a new woodburning fireplace on the opposite wall of the now “great room”.

Also, in came a brand new custom Maple kitchen by Hoosier House Furnishings, LLC and bay window with marble sill. The perimeter of the kitchen features painted and glazed raised panel cabinetry with Atlantic black suede granite tops. The island has a black paint with rubbed edge finish and is topped with Calcutta marble. To accommodate the new computer station, the former pantry closet was closed off. However, in its place is a pantry cabinet with loads of roll-out shelving.

Main Level Remodel
Main Level Remodel

Martin Brothers Contracting was hired to renovate the main floor of this two story home.  The 1,450 SF renovation was the third project Martin Brothers completed for the homeowner.  The goal was to create a larger, more efficient kitchen.  After looking at several possible options with Martin Brothers’ architect, Phil Jenkins, we decided to proceed with a solution that involved repurposing some under-utilized rooms on the main level and moving the kitchen to a new location.  The end result is a main level with a more functional, more efficient use of the space, designed around the lifestyle of the occupants.
