Before/After: 1963 Bi-Level Remodeling in Boulder, Colorado

By • Nov 10, 2011

If you check out our “About” page, you will read that HomeDSGN was launched by Eric Meunier, right after he finished remodeling a vacation home in Boulder, Colorado, USA.

Well, today he decided to share some photos of his project…

Built in 1963, this bi-level was missing of a fifth bedroom and more spacious living areas. The dining/living room had no connection with the backyard and was way to small for today’s need.

The 1963’s kitchen had to go and finally, the house had no curb appeal at all.

The first step in the remodeling process was to add a French door in the dining room leading to a new balcony and a new deck, both made of Brazilian Wood.

The second step was to address the lack of a real living room. With the help of local architect Nancy Lands and general contractor Gavin Bell, an upper level was added above the garage to provide an extra ensuite bedroom and a living room connected to the dining room by an eight step staircase.

The kitchen was completely remodeled and every room was re-painted and furnished thanks to local Craigslist sellers.

By the end of 2010 and after six months of intensive work, the house was done and ready for occupancy.
