OUR HOMEOWNERS ENVISIONED A LARGE LUXURIOUS MASTER SUITE
The design challenge for this project was to make an existing small and dated bedroom and bathroom into a large luxurious master suite that meets the homeowners’ lifestyle while staying within the footprint of the home. The sleep habits of the homeowners were taken into consideration as well as their desire to have plenty of sunlight and lines of sight in the bedroom space. And their love of reading provided opportunities to integrate custom touches into the design.
COLLABORATION, STRUCTURAL CHANGES, & BORROWING SPACE
A Design Build approach was taken by R. Craig Lord Construction Company which created a collaborative process, exploring several design options with the homeowner before settling on a final design. In order to enlarge the Master Bedroom and Master Bath, a load bearing wall was removed and a beam was installed in the attic space above so that is would not be seen and still support the roof and second floor. The addition of posts we that sat on the foundation also provided the support needed to make the expansive Master Suite possible. The floor plan was reconfigured by borrowing space from an existing room which allowed a larger space for custom closets and a larger bathroom with a spa tub, custom shower with body sprays, heated floor, and a wall hung toilet. A reading Room features a cozy nook with room for a nap if needed. And a hallway connecting the new space was outfitted with built in bookshelves for the homeowners’ collection of books.
THE RESULT: A LUXURIOUS CUSTOM MASTER SUITE
The homeowners are thrilled with the results of their Master Suite which was customized to their lifestyle. Through a collaborative Design Build process, well thought out solutions resulted in a one-of-a-kind luxurious Master Suite.
