Project Overview: The Wittler’s are a younger, newly married couple looking to transform their split level home in NW Reno into their dream home. When I originally met them they had plans to build an addition onto the back of the home in order to obtain their dream kitchen and entertaining areas. Their wish list included a kitchen addition and full remodel of the existing home.
Challenges: Our main challenge was trying to accomplish all of their wish list items within their budget. Based on past projects we knew right away that what they were asking for was going to be very expensive so we decided to value engineer the project before we even began the first round of bidding. We were able to work right alongside the homeowners to build a new scope that better fit their budget and still achieve all of their goals. We did this by re-working the existing footprint instead of building an addition. By eliminating the addition we were able to spend more money on unique features within the home that really makes their space stand out. We ended up re-working the main level of the house (entry, dining room and kitchen) to provide them with more of an open floor plan which better accommodates all the entertaining they do. We were able to completely remodel the master suite (bedroom, bathroom, and WIC) and we were able to update all interior finishes throughout the rest of the home. We brought new life to every inch of the home. NW Reno is full of homes that all look the same but the Wittler’s home definitely stands out now. They were very easy to work with and they appreciated that we were upfront about costs and what we could and could not achieve within their budget.
