Lyon Drive, Upper Arlington

When the owners of this home decided to remodel, it was to transform their rear yard into a space that could be used for their changing lifestyle. This project involved two additions to their 35-year old Upper Arlington home, as well as extensive landscaping.

The home's beautiful and substantial rear yard contained an older in-ground swimming pool. Since the pool had become a maintenance problem and the homeowners no longer had young children to make use of it, they chose to convert the area entirely.

The project began with filling in the existing pool and removing a deck. A three-car carriage house was built in the rear yard where the pool once was. The same details of the existing house were used so that the carriage house looks as if it was part of the original home. The carriage house is heated and insulated so the homeowner can work on his cars or in his workshop.

A spacious sunroom was designed and built onto the rear of the home behind the kitchen and dinette, duplicating the architectural details of the existing house. It reaches into a cathedral ceiling which enhances the light quality of the room. The rear wall of the dinette was removed, allowing for a light, open floor plan between the kitchen and the new sunroom. Warm hued maple plank flooring was also installed.

This remodeled home reveals many solutions for altering space that is no longer functional by creating a new and useful reality for daily living.
