Residence, St. Louis MO
Passive Energy Designs 2014-2015
The residence is a remodel of an early 1970's suburban ranch home. Walls were removed, new windows and a large sliding door were added, and the floorplan redesigned to be open concept and filled with light. While finishing touches are still to be completed (tilework, range hood, under cabinet lighting, door hardware), there are many custom features such as: toe kick drawers, hidden island electrical circuits, drawer pullouts, pot filler, chalkboard wall, and built ins for the refrigerator, microwave, and wine fridge. The half bathroom, laundry room, closet, entryway, fireplace, living room, garden, exterior siding, roof shingles, and entry door were also renovated and updated throughout the project.
