Part of a larger, whole home renovation in Westwood, this post highlights the final, first floor renovation including: kitchen, dining room and play room remodels. See progress blog posts here and here. A typical Cape style home, this house was built in 1954. Our clients purchased the home and hired us right away to re-imagine the space suitable for a growing family. In an effort to open up the floor plan, we relocated the existing downstairs bathroom, to the newly added mudroom space (more on that in a different post).

Hoffman Design Build, we're able to answer all those questions, concerns and problems through the Design Phase of our Design Build process. Our newest project is a perfect example of this. Our clients asked some of those same questions. This project is a multi-scope renovation of a 1954 Cape style home in Westwood, MA. Purchased for
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 Although the 18th Century farmhouse had been updated with a bathroom addition decades ago, the current bathroom was outdated and poorly laid out.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.
