Location: This home is located on Oakland Avenue in a small, tree-lined city in St. Louis with a history that dates to the early 1900s.
Our client purchased this home many years ago but only lived in it for a short time. Originally built in 1907, the house sat empty for the last 10 years and quickly deteriorated. The homeowner wanted to retire to this home but it required a great deal of work to repair damage from exposure and neglect.
To bring it back to life, we needed to tear an addition off the back of the house, enlarge the kitchen and install a full bath on the main floor to support aging-in-place.
The entire project took 18 weeks, start to finish, and included several projects throughout the house that were unrelated to the addition, such as removing the boiler system and overhauling the HVAC.
