Family Estate Renovation

This complete refurbishment took an existing, modern neo-classical style house and renovated it into a Louisiana Low Country house. Shapiro & Company completely renovated the front, sides, and rear of the house to achieve the needs of the family. Typical of its period, the kitchen in the original house was a single room. Shapiro & Company renovated the kitchen to include an open family room and breakfast room to accommodate the family's lifestyle. The foyer, living room, and dining room were remodeled along with a master bedroom suite, four-car garage, and a large screened-in porch to allow for views of the site's multiple acres. The original structure had a few windows, which made the rooms seem dark and uninviting. French doors were added to create light-filled rooms overlooking the expansive property, allowing for a connection between the interior and the exterior.
