2018 Mid Year Update Part 2

As we mentioned in our last blog, we’ve decided to give you some mid-year updates on projects we’ve been working on, so we can give a bit more detail about each than we can in our end-of-year review.

2018 has been a busy year so far, and there’s still a lot of year left. Here are a few things we’ve been working on in the past several months.

Completed Projects

Renovation & Addition

This project was actually wrapped up at the end of 2017, but we were able to get some photography done this past spring. We worked hard to make sure the space flowed with the existing house both inside and out.

Stratford Hills Renovation

This was one of our “flips” which required a whole-house remodel. Our goal was to update the 1950’s split-level house with more modern details. While most of the work involved the interior renovation, we really loved the exterior updates with the new metal roof and the brick that we painted gray.

Windsor Farms Renovation

We completed this project back in June and will be photographing the final product later this year.  The project was a whole house renovation that included a down-to-the-studs renovation of the kitchen, three bathrooms, powder room, and a few other areas of the house. The overall material palette and design style was based on clean, simple and modern materials and finishes.

People often ask if we work on ‘small projects.’ The truth is - even a “small project” can be a big task, so we never judge a project based on size. We loved the detail that went into this build and how a “small” project made a big different for this home.

Current Projects

Church Hill renovation and addition (1880)

Perhaps one of the most extensive gut jobs we’ve done, this project also included an addition on the back of the house, which proved to have some complexities as the design of the addition wrapped around an original masonry wall that was in very poor shape.  We had to hold the masonry wall in place while removing parts of the original house and then the new addition could be built - a bit of a juggling act.

It wasn’t quite planned out to have two of our current projects a few blocks apart, but the proximity is definitely nice! We started this project late in the summer and have been working hard through the heat and rain to frame the addition. The work on this project also includes remodeling the kitchen which is expanding into the new addition.

 As you can see, 2018 is on its way to being a great year for RIC with tons of inspiring projects and clients. For weekly updates and insights into our process, make sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
