More Press!

This project has been done for a while but we're thrilled that KC Home and Style has featured it. We've got a pretty good spread of photos in this issue and a great article. You can flip through the issue (we start on page 39) or if you want to read the article without the flipping - http://homesandstylekc.com/michelangelo-built-home/ Thanks to KC Home and Style for the press and thanks to all the people involved in the project for making it fantastic! ...

Aberdeen House 2

There aren't a lot of changes on the exterior of the house itself beyond the windows, doors and a few modifications but on the interior we are drastically changing the house. Taking it from something that is very traditional and essentially unchanged since it was built to something that is a nice mix of very contemporary and transitional. The largest of the changes are in the kitchen wing of the house. The existing kitchen wing was broken up into a series...

2019 Residence-Phase 2-4

A glare-filled picture but paint and trim are all done and it looks great. We also added some width and an overhang to the existing dormers to bring them into scale with the rest of the house and replaced the existing siding, windows and trim. A view of the rear of the house. Trim and siding is wrapped up. Just a little bit left. A finished shot of the upstairs bedroom. The clients did hand-drawn linework on the walls and picked a...

Aberdeen House –

Another RDM Architecture + Hurst Construction project is well under way, in fact we're almost done with electrical and plumbing rough in on the first half of the project but have been busy and haven't had a chance to put together a post yet so this is going to the the first of a couple to catch up to where things are. The existing house was designed by Morton Payne in the 60's and had survived pretty unchanged since then. We're...

2019 Residence – Phase 2 – 3

Another update over at 2019. Siding and exterior trim is on and we're just waiting for paint. The interior is as well. With the fireplace gone the space opened up but now that the walls and floors are continuous it finally seems like one large space. This view is looking toward what will be a built-in entertainment center and bench. Another view of the new family room, looking toward the new door and window. Currently this leads to...

2019 Residence – Phase 2 – 2

Another update at 2109! All exterior framing and cladding is done. House wrapped and ready for siding and trim. A dormer was added at the back of the house to improve the space in the upstairs bedroom. Interior framing and the first good view of the upstairs bedroom looking back toward the existing house. Another view of the new expanded bedroom, looking toward the new dormer. Also framed out are the openings for the built in storage...

2019 Residence – Phase 2

Phase 2 begins! (Honestly we're a little behind on posts for this project so we're going to catch up quickly) This was a project we finished up the first phase a couple years ago. We loved the way it turned out. We added a bit of space on the first floor but the majority of the work was in the master bedroom on the second floor. This phase concentrates on the first floor and opening it up in a...
