Barnstable, Massachusetts (PRWEB) June 20, 2013
Toby Leary Fine Woodworking recently updated a 6,000 square foot Osterville home taking it from 1980’s style and giving it a modern and updated look. The home was newly purchased and located in the gated community of Oyster Harbor. “The homeowners were able to look beyond the outdated aesthetic and see potential while taking advantage of the location,” says Toby Leary, owner of Toby Leary Fine Woodworking.
“The exterior of the home received a total rehab,” says Toby. Old roofing was removed and replaced with red cedar shingles that were pressure treated for longevity. The crew installed taper sawn shingling which is ¾ inch thick as opposed to the typical ½ inch thick to prevent curling and making it rugged. Toby Leary Fine Woodworking replaced the old worn siding with pre-stained white cedar shingles for a stunning facelift of the home. The windows and doors were replaced to improve energy efficiency and provide a cohesive look with the additional updates.
“The entryway of the home was over designed,” says Toby. “We re-designed the entry and made it simple to increase curb appeal and make it more welcoming.” His team replaced the circular columns with tapered square columns, new soffits and brackets. Copper trim was fitted over the doors and windows to create additional architectural details.
The home’s layout needed revising. “The interior screamed 1983,” claimed Toby. “There were a lot of quirky details such as multiple levels that we smoothed out.” Toby Leary Fine Woodworking created a floor plan to open up the home and improve upon the water views for the homeowners. The out dated staircase was modernized and replaced with a custom Balustrade. The family room had a vaulted ceiling made from sheet rock. These professionals replaced it with a warm wood ceiling and wood beams that were painted to soften the room. Custom woodwork resulted in a new entertainment center and a simple mantel treatment, while improving the home’s character. A lovely chandelier was installed in the entry along with accent lighting to keep the space light.
The kitchen remodel included developing a smart new design to maximize space. Moving the range from the island to along the wall allowed Toby and his team to establish a casual dining and prep area at the kitchen island. The washer and dryer was relocated from the kitchen into a newly dedicated laundry room built in the basement. The freed up space allowed the homeowners to gain 20 lineal feet for additional cabinetry and a rollout pantry. Fresh paint along with recessed lighting as well as pendant lighting over the sink and casual eating area makes the kitchen more functional and stunning.
All five bathrooms in the home were remodeled. Fiberglass bathtubs and showers were replaced with classic looking tile and timeless finishes. Beautiful marble was used on the countertops and floors. Heavy glass frameless shower doors were installed along with subway tile in the showers. The Master Bath is a stunning combination of glass and Thassos tile. Wainscoting, crown moulding and custom vanities give the bathroom charm and detail. New paint and smaller recessed lighting and updated wall sconces give the bathroom a soft calm feeling.
Toby Leary Fine Woodworking has done an amazing whole home remodel that proves if homeowners can look beyond a home’s current styling and find a professional and experienced remodeling contractor they can have the home of their dreams.
