As their family continued to expand and the kitchen began to fail, this couple found that the outdated appliances, worn-out linoleum floor, and ugly green countertop wasn’t making weekly family dinners enjoyable. The couple decided that they needed more room for preparation and seating, as well as appliances that could support meals for thirteen. The oversized island is perfect for cooking with the grandkids, canning from the garden, and homemade ravioli nights. The large drawers and abundant cabinet space make for easy organization and storage. Working with the owner’s ideas and budget, Padgett was able to create a kitchen fit for a gourmet or just a grandmother making loving meals for her family.
This newly married couple purchased their first home in Glen Carbon, IL knowing they were going to do immediate remodeling. The home provided ample space but the design of the kitchen and flooring finishes throughout the first floor were not to their tastes. Working with the homeowners, Padgett Building came up with a design that removed the walls of the sun room and removed the wall between the kitchen and the family room. The new design provides an open floor plan where the kitchen, hearth room, dining room, and family room all flow together as one. A 13’ island in the kitchen provides plenty of space to entertain friends and family while simultaneously the master chef can make dinner on the 6 burner gas stove. Two Empire Comfort Systems gas fireplaces were installed: one in the hearth room and one in the wall of the family room. And what happened to the ugly flooring? It was replaced by ¾” raw oak flooring that was custom finished on the job.
This lower level finish was designed for a growing family in Ballwin, MO. The family of 5 (soon to be 6) was looking for a roomy place for both children and adults to play. The basement has a theater room, play room, bar area, bathroom, exercise room/ extra bedroom, storage area, and a wine room. The theater room was designed for the family to be able to sit together and watch movies. The play room needed to be large enough to fit the kids toys and be able to blow up the bounce house. The bar area was designed for the parents to be able to enjoy frosty beverages poured from the built in kegerator but also keep an eye on the kids while they are in the play room. The exercise room was designed to fit the treadmill and other exercise equipment but also to convert into a bedroom when anyone needed to stay over. The wine cellar was designed to be its own conditioned space to keep over 1000 bottles of wine at an optimal 57 degrees. This was achieved by insulating the walls and ceiling with closed cell foam insulation. Also, a ducted wine cellar cooling system was installed to maintain the perfect conditions in the room. Finally, an exterior door, with a keypad door lock, was installed entering the wine cellar to close off the room into its own conditioned space. This family is excited to use their extra space!
This repeat client wanted to make more use of their large deck space, create an undercover space for grilling, and sit with mother nature on their heavily wooded lot all year round. They needed to address the issue of the rear sliding door not operating smoothly and the hardwood floor was fading inside the walk out bay area.
The existing deck frame was used for the new sunroom floor system after extra support post were added. The exterior consist of an EIFS finish system around the windows and band boards. The soffit, fascia, gutter and shingles were matched to the existing products. The underside of the sunroom was covered with matching soffit and provides the new grilling space. Accent boards matching the deck material allowed us to leave most of the deck in place. There is access to the deck out of both sides of the space. Inside pocket doors replaced the existing patio door. Alterna – Mesa Stone – Beige tile blends in well with the hardwood floor. A Mitsubishi Minisplit heat pump heats and cools the new space quietly. Can lights on a dimmer switch control the amount of light needed no matter what season it is.
When Ralph and Jean called us to look at their sunroom, they asked us, “Please don’t say I told you so!” Seventeen years ago Padgett Building added a screened in porch to their home that looks out over a lake. We told them at the time that if we installed windows they would be able to use the room more when the weather started to get cold. Seventeen years later the windows are installed and we also included a wall pack HVAC unit to heat and cool the area. Padgett Building refinished the walls and added Alterna flooring. Of course, with all the changes Ralph and Jean made they also had to get some new furniture!
Wow! What a transformation. Lowell and Diana wanted to update their Master Bathroom. They wanted a walk in shower with no door. Since they had only used their tub a few times in all the years they had lived there, Padgett Building’s designer was able to use that space to create the larger shower and an open feel. Note the attention to detail on the glass tile at the Silestone vanity top and the entry to the shower. Lowell’s only real request was the rain head shower!
