After a home search turned up few options, the owners of a cramped, 1970’s split level turned their attention back to their own home. While the house was lacked the extra bedroom and the open floor plan they wanted, it was in the perfect family-friendly neighborhood, which they really didn’t want to leave.

So instead of putting up a For Sale sign they worked with Apex to transform their outdated floor plan.

The first step in the renovation was to take down the load-bearing wall between the kitchen and the living room. Apex replaced it with a rugged 18” triple LVL, which opened up the space, making it feel spacious and bright. The addition of an extra bedroom and basement playroom completed the makeover.

In the end this transformation took a home that was a little too cramped and dated and turned it into a dream home that will meet this family’s needs well into the future.
