PORTFOLIO

Truckee-08

The homeowners wanted to transform their outdated cabin into a modern mountain retreat. The original objective was for a limited scope interior remodel of a non-compliant space, master suite addition and new exterior siding. As the project progressed so did the scope to include more of the interior such as the kitchen and upstairs bath.

The exterior of this home was given a functional and lower maintenance modern update with metal panel and corrugated siding. A new master suite was added at the rear of the house giving the back more symmetry and encloses the rear patio creating a sense of privacy even with close neighbors. An existing powder room was relocated and the existing non-code compliant guest room was removed creating an open flow from the sunken living room to the family room. The new open plan, light colors, and additional light fixtures help the home to feel bright, airy and more functional.

We were referred to MWA by our builder Gerald Meng of Meng Construction. He builds a high quality custom home so we first visited MWA with high expectations. They were met! Kurt and Kristy listened to what we wanted and envisioned and designed the home of our dreams and a home that went on to win the Home OF The Year award in Tahoe Quarterly Mag. We highly recommend MWA.
