WHOLE HOUSE RENOVATION IN BROOKLAND PARK, RICHMOND VA

(scroll down to see photos of the construction in progress)

We completely overhauled this spacious 1900+ sf house. All the historic charm has been maintained, all systems are new, including, wiring, plumbing, & HVAC.  The rear includes a 1st floor mudroom & kitchen, a master bath, laundry, and there’s a walk-in closet on the 2nd floor. Finishes include original & reclaimed wide plank hardwood floors throughout. Bathrooms feature natural stone & ceramic tile, custom vanities, & frame-less glass shower walls.  Chefs kitchen with high-end appliances, loads of counter space and a stainless steel farm sink. Energy efficient windows. We installed a generous privacy fence as well we poured the spacious concrete patio.  

Wallace St, VCU Rowhouse Reimagined

A 96 year old woman who moved to the street in 1924 told us that one block near VCU built by a single developer between 1924 and 1928 was the first block in the “west end” of Richmond (just blocks of Harrison and Cary) where African Americans were allowed to build new homes.  The historic homes are only along the north side of the street because the south side was still pasture land for cattle.  This head to toe renovation included new roofing, all new systems, and a replacement of the original lead water lines. Original hardwood was preserved upstairs while a highly patterned maple was included on the first floor where rotted floor joists required the replacement of flooring.  This project is now home to some of the luckiest renters in the VCU area.

A CLASSIC CAPE’S TRANSFORMATION TO A LUXURY FIVE BEDROOM FAMILY HOME

This classic Tuckahoe cape in University Heights near University of Richmond was begging for a reimagined life.  We relocated the front door, added height to the first floor ceiling, “popped the top” and added an addition off the back.  The result was a five bedroom three and a half bath home with a custom mudroom, heated tile floors, conditioned crawl space, storage galore, and an above grade bluestone eating porch.
