Grisius Project

2006; Vienna, Virginia; 8 month construction time; in-house design.

We increased the top 2 floor by about 1/3 with a major renovation that included most of existing first and second floor. About 1800 sq feet were added to home.

On the exterior we redid the entire roof and added dormers to enhance the design. We added Hardi-Plank siding and painted some of the existing brick to match. We also added extensive “hardscaping” including a large Balcon Paver, circular driveway. We also did a window replacement including most of the doors as well. On first floor we converted the old 2-car garage to a new 2-story great room with stone fireplace and opened it to the kitchen. The morning room was enlarged and completely re-done. A new 3-car garage was added with porte-cochere covered entry. The laundry was relocated as we added a 14’ x 18’ mud room, laundry and hobby room. A covered porch was added to the rear that overlooks the stream valley. On the second floor we combined several bedrooms to make larger ones with new baths and created a new large laundry. A new master suite with extensive closets and a spectacular master bath was added over the new garage with a rear stair to the first floor.  A stunning balcony connects the master suite to the rest of the second floor over the great room.
