Write-up from the Best in American Living Awards 2015 Winners Portfolio

"The objective of this whole-house remodel was to fulfill the family's need for a larger home, with the emphasis on creating an open, serene space. The challenge was to convert a cramped 1970's saltbox into an inviting residence suitable for entertaining, while respecting the original building form.

Laughlin Homes + Restoration expanded the home from 1,551 square feet to 4,327 square feet with additions designed to blend in with the surrounding historical neighborhood. Accessed through a private courtyard that leads to an atrium of glass and brick, the remodeled residence retains a distinctive modern vernacular design.

Superior craftsmanship and a clever integration of salvaged materials are hallmarks of this project. Discarded 1-inch-by-1-inch weathered oak slats were used for the interior wall siding. A salvaged cast-iron gate was inlaid into the wooden stair landing and lit from underneath to cast a beautiful pattern onto the wall at night. Solid bronze light fixtures, imported from Egypt, provide a warm look for the stairwell. Over the dining room table are two antique tornado sirens that were repurposed as lighting. The gourmet kitchen is designed around historic apothecary casework obtained from a local pharmacy. 

Located at the top of the veranda stairway, the master suite features a large walk-in closet, an elegant bath, and a sleeping area with a balcony that overlooks the spa and pool. Functioning interior casement windows, complete with turn-of-the-century hardware, and a custom-built door allows the master suite to open onto the balcony for an open, airy feel. The client's teenage daughters have their own living area and bedroom suites within the reconfigured shell of the original home.

An outdoor fireplace and deep porches expand interior space into the backyard with an outdoor kitchen and poolscape."
