A more contemporary aesthetic for a traditional ranch home

Campbell Contemporary Ranch

In yet another example of a ranch remodel/addition in which we filled in the front part of an “ell”, Julie and Gavin opted for a transitional style that leveraged the house’s existing roof lines while providing a more contemporary aesthetic in their new home.

The couple opted to place a “flex” room at the front of the house, a space that can be used variously as a home office, music room, and overnight guest room. A skylit central hallway connects the relocated front door to the remodeled family room, which retained an recently renovated kitchen while adding a new tray ceiling, lighting, and connection to the backyard.

The master suite and bedroom wing (containing two additional bedrooms) were also completely redone.

A family friend served as the builder and general contractor, continuing not only a childhood friendship but also a professional relationship established with the first kitchen remodel a few years prior.
