Looking to expand their one-story early 1980s home in SE Portland, these homeowners enjoyed their close-in location near Sellwood, but desired extra square footage for entertaining and livability, without taking up extra yard space.
Zuver Construction, a high-end remodeler and custom homebuilder skilled at second story additions, transformed the 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom home into a two story, spacious retreat functional for cozy days at home as well as big gatherings.
The result of the remodel is what feels like a completely new home with a spacious main floor featuring a large family room open to the state-of-the-art kitchen and adjoining patio. The convenient main floor theater room will ensure that fun is around every corner. The bookshelf off the family room leads to a secret storage area.
The home’s neutral color palette and sleek, minimalist fixtures allow spaces to feel light and streamlined. Grays and neutral tones provide the backdrop for accent pops of color to take center stage.
Upstairs, the new master suite feels like a luxurious escape complete with a sitting area, lavish bathroom with a soaking tub and large shower and pass-through closet to the laundry room. A balcony with cable railing allows for added light to the master suite and a refreshing retreat to start each morning.
Outside, the new driveway and the home’s refreshed exterior allows it to shine within the mature neighborhood. The finished home, which has an entirely different house, gave the homeowners what they were looking for: an updated look, extra space and modern functionality.
The home still fits within the neighborhood’s look and charm, but is a better version of what it used to be.
