This renovation in the historic Mount Washington neighborhood of Baltimore made a huge difference in the life of an active family of six. An underused porch was removed, providing space for a new family room and kitchen. We renovated the basement and redesigned two outdoor areas, giving the homeowners several new and beautiful areas in the home to enjoy. The second floor was enhanced by a new laundry room, refinished floors, and energy efficient windows. The homeowner subsequently applied for and received a federal grant for the energy efficient appliances and building techniques used during the renovation.
