Modern Ranch Revised
On a more personal remodel, when the Keysers move to their new location in West Linn, they chose an amazing lot with a 1960's ranch home with serious work needed. They demolished the interior, reworking the layout completely, and creating a spacious modern home.
The removal of the walls dividing the interior of the main rooms created flow and improved traffic patterns. Old acoustic panels on the ceilings were removed as well. The windows throughout were restructured, removing the angled single pane windows and replacing them with stepped operable double pane windows that continue to accent the vaulted ceiling and newly exposed beams.
A kitchen overhaul resulted in a two tiered central island with bar seating, a dining nook tucked in the corner and extensive counter space. A dining room looks out through sliding glass doors to a covered back deck and patio.
The exterior of the home saw upgrades as well with a new rock fireplace, and wrapping sheds on the homes existing garage, etc.
