4 WHOLE HOUSE RENOVATION 309 Hudson Street, Raleigh 27608 renovationspecs.com info@renovationspecs.com 919-821-4525 after The owners of this one-and-a-half story 1939 bungalow loved the style of their home but needed more room and a more accessible second story. We contacted Shelly Johnson of Designs & Dwellings to redesign the house, keeping the historic look of the neighborhood. The project entailed demolishing the house down to the first floor, leaving a couple of exterior walls and the front fireplace. The expanded front porch includes tongue- and-groove flooring and double columns with lattice work. The exposed rafters and beadboard roof decking add to the historic appearance. The old structure was 1,400 sq. ft. (1,000 sq. ft. downstairs and 400 barely accessible sq. ft. upstairs). The new home is a little over 2,900 sq. ft., with 1,850 sq. ft. downstairs and about 1,050 upstairs. The downstairs includes a master suite, a guest bedroom and an attractive kitchen with adjoining family room. The family room has a gas fireplace with bookcases and vaulted ceilings. The upstairs has two bedrooms with a shared bath and a large playroom. Reclaimed heart pine floors give the area a nostalgic old home look. The home also has a whole house vacuum system.
