We started chatting with Paul and Janet about remodeling their Hyde Park home as a builder, but quickly realized a deeper design collaboration would be the most fruitful approach for their evolving goals. A series of design charettes started us off in a new direction; at the end of the day, we reconfigured the master bath and closets for more efficient use of space, stretched the addition to allow for a comfortable living and dining area, and extended the screened porch to gain more outdoor living space for their rambunctious boys Griffin and Reid to run through. After a few short months spent designing and permitting we quickly broke ground, leaving many of our design decisions and details to be figured out on site during the build process. Daily collaboration with Paul was a huge bonus, his enthusiasm and cooperative spirit made him a valuable asset to our design/build team and made the “fly” approach possible. We are proud of the end result, arrived at through complete collaboration between Paul, Janet and our Moontower design/build team. We can’t wait to come shoot hoops on the newly paved basketball court; Smith family, Moontower is happy to tip-off when you are ready!
