FIRST FLOOR LIVING FOR EMPTY NESTERS
Custom kitchen, new foyer reflect empty-nesters’ emerging requirements.
Kevin and Priscilla Kelleher have occupied their 5,200-squarefoot
Springfield home since 1992 when they bought it new. At the time, the builder provided an array of finish work choices. The couple selected the Corian kitchen counter surfaces, a food preparation island of their preferred size and style. The flooring, cabinetfacings, window styles were all a
testament to personal taste. Situated on nearly an acre that
backs into the woods, this is the spacious home where the couple
raised two daughters who have subsequently fled the nest.
DESIGN AND SELECTION CENTER AIMS TO EDUCATE HOMEOWNERS WITH REMODELING PLANS
Foster Remodeling Solutions to host educational open house on April 22
Foster Remodeling Solutions will launch its new 3,270-squarefoot Home Design and Selection Center in Lorton with an open house on Saturday, April 22 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
COZY BY THE FIREPLACE
For cold-weather comfort and panache, there’s no substitute for a fireplace.
“They’ve never fallen out of favor,” says David Foster, president of Foster Remodeling Solutions. “We may be seeing a preference for gas over a traditional wood-burner, but the hearth itself is hugely popular – with homeowners continually seeking distinctions in style, building materials and, even, where it will be located.”
A DESIGN SOLUTION AS BIG AS A BARN DOOR
Talk about rustic charm. In 2007, Bill and Brenda Bosch purchased what boutique remodelers sometimes refer to as a “barn conversion” specifically, a spacious modern home which, five years earlier, had been constructed inside the exterior of a 1935 dairy barn.
ELABORATING A LOG CABIN
Blissful retirement often validates of the old homily: “Busy hands mean happy hearts.” On this point, it is hard to imagine a more fruitful environment than the home of Kirby and Helen Thornton, two 70-something retirees who recently completed focused renovations to a log cabin style home in Lorton they have occupied for over 20 years.
