Change for the Better | Professional Builder


To help a national home builder make a big splash in the Denver market, Osmosis Art and Architecture, Niwot, Colo., redesigned several of the builder’s existing plans. The most dramatic changes were made to this 3,128-square-foot home. “The plan features the most important areas of the home to update,” says Osmosis owner Anne Postle. “We added features that really appeal to today’s buyers.”

Vignette 1 - Command Center

The island was rotated so that the kitchen engages more fully with the great room. The nook, which was formerly located along the outside wall, is now an integral part of the great room. Two highly desirable features, a command center and walk-in pantry, were incorporated into the kitchen.

Vignette 3 - Guest Suite

Guest Suite The home’s former den is now a guest suite with a three-quarter bath. An alcove adjacent to the front foyer accesses the new guest quarters as well as the coat closet. Now the home has a main-floor bedroom that is convenient for guests and can also serve as an in-law suite.

Vignette 4 - Master Bath

Master Bath Flipping the master bath and walk-in closets improved plan efficiency. The long hallway from the bedroom to the bath was eliminated, and the saved square footage was used to increase the size of the water closet and shower and add some circulation space.

Vignette 5 - Jack-and-Jill Bath

Jack-and-Jill Bath A former hall bath on the second floor became a Jack-and-Jill bath serving bedrooms 2 and 3. The laundry room was relocated adjacent to the master walk-in closet, where an optional pass-through makes it convenient for the owners to transfer clothes back and forth. The reworked plan also includes a homework center.
