There are many little flat-roofed 1960s era houses dappled around our city. We love them and suspect they were the height of fashion at the time, much like the many modern houses and renovations that we are now seeing around Halifax today. We like to keep as much of their retro aesthetic while still modernizing them for today's living.
For this project, we removed the existing carport and replaced it with a bump out to allow for a modern kitchen. The existing kitchen didn't quite have a 3'-0" hallway. We had the old kitchen gutted and turned it into an appropriately scaled mudroom perfect for keeping a busy family organized. The siding was only replaced where necessary and painted out. A new main level fireplace and some large sliding doors were added out to a new deck and the beautiful forested backyard. A small intervention with big impact, for both liveability and curb appeal, without losing its original character.
