Grisius Project

1995; Reston, Virginia; 6 month construction time; in-house design.

This client hired us to enlarge their home on a very tight 6000 sq lot by adding a 3-story addition as well as remodeling much of the first floor.

We added about 1200 sq ft to their home that added about 50% to the home’s size.

The new finished basement serves as a play room for the kids [now married]. On the first floor we re-did the kitchen and upgraded it with granite, new cabinets, an eating counter and a pass thru to the new family room in the addition [see photos]. We also added a bump-out for a new breakfast nook. On the top floor we added 2 bedrooms and a new bath.

We had many challenges on this job in trying to blend in this large addition with the existing home so they were seamless. The site was so tight we had to do a lot by hand that is normally done with machines but did so and still remained on schedule.
