From unfinished and unusable to practical and peaceful, our team here at J.P. Hoffman Design Build turned a cold and unfinished basement, to a cozy finished space. Complete with a family room, bathroom, game room, play room and home office. Through our Design and Scope Development process, our in-house design team partnered with the homeowners to hear their wants, needs and goals for their growing family. They wanted a retreat space for movie and game nights. CHECK They wanted space for their vast and growing board game collection. CHECK Ticket to Ride anyone?! They wanted a designated play/craft room for their young children. CHECK They needed space for an office as one
What if there was indoor plumbing in 1740? Well, we pretended there was when we accepted the challenge to renovate an existing Ashland, MA bathroom, but with a nod to the home's historic roots. Although the 18th Century farmhouse had been updated with a bathroom addition decades ago, the current bathroom was outdated and poorly laid out. Working with homeowners passionate about restoring their property to its original glory, we saw this as a unique challenge to create a "what if" kind of space. From the handmade wainscoting and cabinetry, made right in our own workshop, to the restored chandelier the Owners found in the attic and the re-use of the original vanity top and mirror, you may just think the space had always been there…even before it could’ve been!
