Award Winning Arlington Facade Transformation

2017 NARI CotY Grand Prize winner for the Residential Addition between $100-250K category

The project's challenges:

  • Remove the entire two level front of an occupied home and replace with a new front addition and craftsman style front porch.

  • A massive brick fireplace and chimney were removed further opening up the entry and front two rooms of the house.

  • The family room and living room were expanded and a home office, new entry, foyer, and coat closet were created on the first floor.

  • A double pocket door was installed to bring the kitchen into the family room, glass backsplash and under-cabinet lighting were added to the kitchen, and additional renovations were performed in the dining room and playroom.

  • On the second level the addition allowed for walk-in closets to be added to two bedrooms and the creation of light-filled home office above the porch.

  • The original boiler and hot-water heater were removed and a new Slant Fin high-efficiency combination unit was installed.

  • Original oversized cast iron radiators and outdated copper-fin radiators were replaced with new Runtal steel radiators.


The entire character of the front of the home was changed – a truly unique and amazing transformation.
