Decrepit porch becomes heart of the home...

These homeowners had been slowly updating other parts of their home in a hot area in Cincinnati, and now they were ready for the big show: the entertainment core. Families do life differently these days, and it's always a pleasure to see these transformations of small, dank, sectioned off kitchen/dining/living room areas to large open spaces suitable for their spooky Halloween party or a late night of studying for the 2 girls.

As seen in the below plan, we removed the exterior bearing wall and turned the existing screened porch into the enlarged kitchen/dining area. Also slightly moved and remodeled the existing bath & bedroom, as well as opened up the stairway and closed off a hallway in order to create a small mudroom area.

Above, rear wall was removed and kitchen opened to rear porch. Below is remodeled entry and opened up basement stairs. The transformation was so great it is hard to relate the before photos to the after.

Below, the exterior decrepit screens were removed and rotting structure replaced in order to enclose this once useless space into the heart of the home.

  1. This is the advertising Meyer Brothers and Sons is using after the remodel of our house! I really can't say enough about this wonderful company and the great group of people they employ. Professional, kind, easy going and totally trustworthy. I highly recommend them for any remodel project. We will be continuing with them this spring when we do the front of the house. Love Meyer Brothers!!!!
