A Complete Remodel Breathes New Life into a Boulder Home

When the homeowner snapped up this 2,400 sq. ft. ranch house just a stone’s throw from downtown Boulder, they had a vision for a modern, functional family home. They partnered with us in Spring 2023 to renovate both the interior and exterior and bring the look and feel of Boulder back into the space. 

The mission was straightforward: a gut renovation to bring about a luxurious space fit for modern living. And, working in Boulder County, energy efficiency was not just a preference, but a necessity as we navigated the process. 

Transforming this 1950s home into a high-functioning modern masterpiece was no small feat, but we embraced the challenge, crafting a canvas for its new owners to exercise their creative license.

Scope of Work

This interior and exterior renovation included a comprehensive scope of work that aimed at breathing new life into a space whose structure had been relatively untouched for the past 70 years. 

Many upgrades, structural changes, repairs, and renovations were in order. With a focus on energy efficiency, all plumbing, HVAC, and electrical systems were updated, brand new energy-efficient doors and windows were installed, and high impact-resistant roofing was installed.

Previously, the home’s entire main floor was closed off with narrow hallways, doors, and walls creating bottlenecks upon entry. To create an open-concept layout on the main level, several walls were removed. This seamlessly connected the kitchen, dining area, and living room, maximizing usable space. The star of the show, a complete kitchen remodel, is visible right upon entry. 

The main level’s small bedrooms were restructured and the space combined to create an oversized master suite with a full bath, walk-in closets, and more. Three other bedrooms throughout the home were created.

Last but certainly not least, the basement’s unusable and unfinished area was converted into two large bedrooms, a laundry area, a wet bar, and much more.

Opening Up Possibilities on the Main Floor: Combining Living Area, Kitchen, and Entry

During this extensive renovation, the main level was brought down to the studs in order to open up and reinvent the space. Where before there were multiple walled off rooms and hallways, we knocked down walls and added strategically placed supports to ensure structural integrity. The kitchen, dining, and living areas all flow cohesively in one open concept main level. 

With all new hardware, original oak flooring, and a fresh coat of paint, the once-dated space is now now the picture of modern sophistication. The new windows and doors not only add cohesiveness and modern appeal, but maximize energy efficiency.

One of the main level’s best new features? Wide open space and an abundance of bright natural light.



Full Kitchen Remodel: From Blank Canvas to Modern Marvel

This kitchen underwent a complete gut renovation, emerging as modern and functional to meet the needs of its new owner.

Gone are the days of cramped spaces and dated appliances: In their place is a stunning waterfall island with a built-in range, all new stainless steel appliances, and sleek new lighting that casts a warm glow without stealing the spotlight. The ceramic backsplash—modern, but not too busy—provides a neutral backdrop.

But functionality is not sacrificed for style. Ample storage, made possible with new custom cabinetry, keeps everything organized and out of the way. 

The extra kitchen space also accommodates a good sized dining area with direct access to the outdoor views that make every moment in the kitchen enjoyable.



The Addition of a Master Suite

Bidding farewell to the cramped quarters on the main floor, we merged multiple once-separate rooms into a luxurious oversized master suite. The new space is now able to comfortably accommodate a king bed, armchair, and coffee table with even more room to spare.

Attached to the completely remade master bedroom is a walk-in closet containing custom-built shelving, drawers and space to hang clothes.

This leads into a full bathroom, featuring brand new double vanities, a spacious walk-in shower, and more.

This master suite is one of the two bedrooms on the main level. To see the whole space, view the gallery below.




Bringing the Bathrooms into the Modern Era

Modernized from top to bottom, the home’s three bathrooms now offer a spa-worthy experience—even in the most compact of spaces.

Their limited square footage required us to get creative: Each bathroom was restructured and redesigned for a better flow and more optimized use of the available space.

In addition to all new tile, flooring, cabinetry, fixtures, and lighting, we upgraded the old plumbing systems and installed new ventilation systems to keep moisture issues at bay.

With more storage and smarter use of space, these bathrooms aren’t just functional, but fresh and efficient.

Basement Finishing: Unearthing Endless Possibilities

Would you believe that these two spaces are the same basement with just a few months of time between them? 

To accomplish a full basement remodel and open up the entire level, extensive structural changes were necessary, including moving walls, adding structural supports, stair modifications, and new egress window installation. 

Where this basement was previously unusable, it now features not only an incredible amount of space to take advantage of, but a charming wet bar, a rec room, a laundry area, and multiple large bedrooms!
