Part 6: Historic Ritter House Remodel, Final Reveal

Our renovation of the historic Ritter House is complete, and we’re thrilled to share this before-and-after photo gallery. For additional project photos and backstory, be sure to explore Part 1, Part 2, Part 3,  Part 4 and Part 5 of this blog series.

Before and After: EXTERIOR
The exterior renovation included new windows, stucco, tongue-and-groove fir soffits, stone facade, pergolas, and concrete driveway, walkways and patios.

Before and After: KITCHEN
The dated galley kitchen was desperate for an update. The finished result is an inviting transitional kitchen open to the living room and perfect for entertaining.Ritter House renovation kitchen remodel before and after

Before and After: SUNROOM
The original brick fireplace was preserved and enhanced, and custom cabinetry and shelving were added, to create a stunning focal point in the sunroom.Ritter House remodel sunroom before and after

Before and After: UPSTAIRS BATH

Before and After: CENTER STAIRS and KITCHEN
The stairs were reconfigured and rebuilt to conserve space, making room for a main floor laundry, powder room and additional storage.Ritter House remodel center stairs transitional kitchen

Before and After: LAUNDRY
We moved the laundry from the basement to the main level, then concealed it behind sliding doors and under a multi-use counter. Located near the master bedroom and directly off the kitchen behind the staircase, the new laundry solution is clean, organized and convenient.Ritter House laundry room remodel before and after

The new main-floor master bedroom enjoys a spacious walk-in closet, no-threshold shower and double-sink vanity.
