Brinker: From a Dream to a Dignified Estate

Modern Farmhouse-Style Renovation

Through careful site planning and major interior alterations, an otherwise unremarkable 1980s home was transformed by Balzer and Tuck into a dignified estate.

Balzer and Tuck converted an existing garage and unused part of the yard into a carport, auto court, and carriage house. A new terrace enhanced an existing pool and incorporated a potting shed and timber-framed arbor, connecting the outside with the inside through timber details. A new guest entry was created with a douglas fir roof over an expansive glass door. And a custom mudroom off the new carport introduced a new casual entry point for the homeowners.

“They listen and define your needs before you can even imagine them. They turned our wish-list into drawings, helping us see everything before it was built. Their process was as impressive as the transformation of our home!” – Kelley and Keith, Owners

A reconfiguration of the first floor removed interior walls to open the space and bring natural light into the formerly dark kitchen and dining areas. A new timber-framed great room anchors the entire home with an expansive overlook of the pool terrace.

On the second floor, the fully-renovated master suite includes a new overlook into the great room below. Custom douglas fir cabinetry and millwork add warmth and character as they unite the new and existing spaces and put a finishing touch on the dated home-turned-modern farmhouse.

“Balzer and Tuck were able to creatively take our older home filled with small rooms and design an open, comfortable, modern farmhouse with the barn style we were looking for.” – Kelley and Keith
