Case Study #2

When Disaster Stikes – Rebuild for the Future! 

Our client approached us after a fire devastated their family home on the night of a Christmas party.  Although they were overwhelmed by the loss, with Landmark’s guidance through the planning, permiting and construction process, they were able to quickly rebuild.  Their wish list included an open floor plan for entertaining and individual private suites for guests and family.  They also wanted the new house to feel luxurious while still remaining a family home.

Challenges

Construct a single story home on an existing foundation designed for a two-story home (lot coverage didn’t allow for a larger footprint).   The existing foundation bearing points would need to be utilized.  Further, the existing driveway, swimming pool and landscaping were to be preserved during the construction process.

Solutions

The lowered RV garage was raised and the covered entry in the front of the house was minimized to allow for additional living space.  The house was divided into wings.  The master bedroom and children’s rooms were located together in the west wing of the house as a close place for family.  Two guest suites were added on the opposite ends of the east wing for the feel of privacy.  All of the common area was centralized between the wings with an open layout to allow an easy flow for everyday use.  The dining room, library, kitchen, great room, and outdoor covered patio were all connected with a large open space for comfortable entertaining and a luxurious feel.

 In October of 2009, Landmark Builders was honored by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry with the esteemed Contractor of the Year award in the category ‘Entire House over $1,000,000 for this project!
