GHA Tour of Renovated Homes

Home # 4: Classic Construction of North Carolina, Inc. The area of this home that was renovated was the back end of the home where the kitchen, breakfast nook, tearoom, and wet bar exist. If I had to give this home a personal award it would be “I have too much money to know what to do with.”

Home #5: Acorn Construction, Inc. This home, unlike the residence of house number four, had more sense and logic in what their existing residence needed. They changed one large downstairs bedroom into a smaller sided guest bedroom, bathroom, powder room, hall way, two closets for storage and an back entrance porch. The award I’d give this home would be “incredible attempt in keeping up with the Jones’ and their damn good functionality.”

Home #6: Leon Wood General Contractor, Inc. Here the elder homeowners decided to renovate the upstairs of their garage into a man cave-with a woman’s tough. The renovation project consisted of new insulation, ac and heating units, high VOC carpet, electrical work, drywall, and paint. The homeowners also added a laundry room and pantry to the interior of their home. Their award would be “I can finally afford what I wanted in the 70’s”

IAR 301-02

In anticipation for a new semester, I am hoping that this studio course will allow me to build a stupendous portfolio. If all goes well I should be well versed in the different types of residential units and what designs are important to them. I am also hoping to understand key designs and the years to which they belong or originated.

In an effort to further my research on community and social interactions I have created this blog. My intentions are to have at least one post a week on subjects found in or at any park... Hopefully this will help me pay more attention to my blog as well!
