Lois & Mark

Mark and Lois needed more room for their growing family of three, so when their dream home across the street went on the market, they jumped at the chance to stay on the quiet, tree-lined street they love. They knew the house needed work, but the huge footprint and fenced-in yard was exactly what they wanted. Mark took on the renovation projects himself, but seven years later, they’re still unfinished, and Lois is totally overwhelmed by the chaotic state of their house. They needed our help to finish was started, totally rework the main floor and restore calm to their forever home.

Before & After


Lois and Mark’s family room featured a giant old brick wall, complete with a hearth that looked like you could bake a pizza in it. Since this space was needed for family time and not an Italian eatery, we covered the brick wall with custom built-ins that provided the storage and sophistication the family wanted. With the half-wall (another project Mark didn’t quite finish) between the kitchen and family room gone, now the family can enjoy time together throughout the space.


Amid the storage we created for the kitchen, we needed to work in a family dining space, especially because Lois and Mark wanted to keep their revamped living room as a space they could enjoy separate from the kids. We solved the issue with a banquette tucked into the storage space, which broke up the wall of cabinets and created a nice feature.


Like most items in Lois and Mark’s home, the kitchen was badly dated and in need of repair: the hood vent was missing and had attracted all manner of critters, including … bees?! Once we cleared out the wildlife, we took the room down to the studs and brought back a modern, colorful kitchen that features a continuous counter and backsplash. Now, the only nature Lois and Mark will need in the kitchen is a bouquet of fresh flowers (bees not included).
