The “Great Cape” Remodel – Florida, NY

Project Brief

A diamond in the rough

It was time to remodel this Orange County, NY home. It had been doing its job for a long time but it was in need of a fresh look. We had a wonderful time working with our client to put this inspiring package together. Sandy wanted to bring some charm and warmth to her home while also creating some additional space.

Remodel Results

Not only did we enhance the appearance of the home but we enhanced the performance. Installing new windows and doors, then providing a thermal break with exterior insulation before new shake style siding. To create the space we finished the basement including a half bath.  Then we added a deck out back along with a patio underneath tying all the living areas together. Now providing plenty of space to entertain or just relax.

Long Term

Keeping low maintenance in mind we used synthetic products ( Azek ) for the deck and rails. The siding is vinyl and the window surrounds are PVC ( Azek ) trim with some classic style. For the interior we made the space feel larger and warmer by introducing scale with architectural woodwork using classical moulding profiles.  Kehoe Kustom also re-designed and constructed the main living room built-in entertainment center as well as a wall unit for storage and display in the basement.
