In Hawaii it is not uncommon for a family member to inherit the home they were raised in and eventually raise their own family on the same property. However, as we all know, homes should be updated approximately every 15 years to comply with the newest code but also remain livable for the best quality of life possible. The choice to tear down an old family home can be a difficult one because of the lifetime of memories so in some cases the homeowner chooses to do as big of a remodel as possible without losing the structural integrity to keep the past in tact and connect it with the future. In this Pearl City Remodel, Homeworks was very particular about demoing parts of the house without getting rid of home that this homeowner had known all his life.
Homeworks insulated all the walls inside and out and turned this single wall construction into a fully renovated double wall home with a blue painted exterior from Sherwin-Williams that truly stands out in its neighborhood. We broke down the old carport and leveled the front yard with a smooth concrete pad for a new driveway, brand new carport with drywall ceilings and lighting and also a new covered lanai on the side yard for entertaining and hanging out. The back was an old covered lanai with an worn down bathroom that was converted into a useful living space equipt with insulation, hard wood floors, two ceiling fans, a wet-bar and a fully remodeled bathroom with a walk-in shower and a pedestal sink for a vintage twist. This area has gone from being too hot and hard to use for anything expect storage to a fully functional living room with easy access to the kitchen, bathroom and new backyard patio. The kitchen underwent the biggest transformation of all, knocking out all of the cabinets and appliances and installing brand new Dura Supreme cabinets with Corian solid surface counter tops. The new kitchen serves as a corridor between the back living area and the main house and was designed to fit more than one cook at a time with plenty of prep space as well as cabinet storage.
The back splash with beautiful “wheat” stained cabinets and “granola” colored tops truly gives this room in the middle of the home some major character. The home was finished with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a new covered lanai, new living space and a brand new exterior but was still considered a remodel! So in this case, the homeowners and Homeworks were able to successfully bring the old into the new age while maintaining the plantation style feel of the past.
