Gold Award for Whole House Renovation


At the Home Builders Association of Charlotte's 25th annual Excellence in Remodeling banquet, Craig Miller, owner of Kinterra Home Solutions, was awarded first place in the category of "Whole House Renovation, Over $400k". The first place award was judged based on design, function, craftsmanship, difficulty, and solutions.

The front facade of the home was updated to give it curb appeal by adding a porch, layered gables, and a combination of exterior finishes, including standard brick, painted brick, and batten board. Outside, a two-car garage was added to the back of the house, with a bonus room above. The result is that the front elevation of the home was transformed to reflect the homeowners' preference for craftsman style.

The home went from 2,500 square feet to 5,200 square feet by adding a home office, additional space to the master suite, and a half-bath. On the other side of the home, where before was another master suite, space was reconfigured and added to provide three bedrooms for the children, two baths, a laundry room and mud room area, and a children's study area.

The stunning transformation features a large kitchen and great room that maximizes the living area and functionality of the space. The upscale kitchen includes a walk-in pantry and ample counter space. Throughout the home, large windows were installed to increase the natural light. New natural-stained white oak hardwood floors provide a beautiful and durable finish to withstand a busy household with children and pets.

The Marvin, North Carolina, home is nestled on a beautiful, secluded, yet centrally-located thirty-acre property. The whole house renovation created a layout that works well for the active family. While the homeowners could have chosen to tear down and start over, they instead have a functional family living space while preserving the existing structure.
