Mary’s Home

A need for a dedicated studio space

Mary discovered a passion for watercolor painting and consulted with Cobalt Construction to discuss the possible addition of an artist's studio. Working with Laura Kraft, Architect, they determined that:

  • Her small house had no place for it
  • Floor plan was chopped into cramped subdivisions
  • Living room felt separate from the rest of the house and was rarely used
  • Tiny eating space at end of kitchen was barely useable

Remodel highlights

  • Art studio was added half a story up, above existing garage
  • Dividing walls and coat closet at entry and dining room were removed, allowing one to see the whole space
  • Opening to living room was widened, connecting it visually to the main room
  • Consistent new wood flooring helps the spaces flow together
