Craftsman ranch remodel in South Scottsdale, AZ

Siding, insulation, windows, doors, flooring, structural beam...

The craftsman ranch remodel in South Scottsdale, AZ started as a 1950’s ranch with failing vinyl siding and old, dysfunctional doors & windows. The layout and small rooms weren’t working for the owners. Some home improvement & repairs were in order.

exterior renovations:

The home’s exterior had old, faded vinyl siding that was falling off in many areas. The Keys wanted to upgrade the look of the house with faux stone and wood siding—a major boost in the curb appeal of the home that would give it a craftsman ranch look.

While striping the exterior siding off of the house we discovered that there was no insulation in the walls at all. The fiber board sheathing was also poorly installed and damaged in some areas. This presented a “golden opportunity” to insulate the walls to improve the comfort and efficiency of the home.

The exterior scope of work for this craftsman ranch remodel included:

  • faux stone siding on the front of the house below the windows
  • T1-11 “LP SmartSide” siding on the main walls
  • clapboard siding above the T1-11 in the gable triangles
  • exterior trim at corners & windows
  • new fascia and rake trim at the roof line
  • window replacement & exterior door replacement
  • window and door flashing for water resistance
  • Insulate the walls with “Roxul” R15 mineral wool batts
  • install new OSB sheathing and “Tyvek” weather barrier
  • 2-color exterior painting scheme
  • new window shutters

interior renovations:

The interior had been updated somewhat throughout the years. The Keys wanted to selectively remodel the interior and combine two bedrooms to create a larger master bedroom & closet. The interior remodeling project included:

  • remove wall between bedrooms & install a structural beam
  • build his & hers closet in master bedroom
  • convert bedroom window to exterior door in master bedroom
  • upgrade electrical, fans and lighting
  • install Pergo laminate flooring in guest and master bedroom
  • install new baseboard trim
  • install window & door casing
  • lower kitchen cabinets to standard height
  • interior painting

This transformation completed in August 2018 breathed new life into the neighborhood.  The homeowner knew exactly what they wanted for their craftsman ranch remodel. They were amazed at the transformation and very please with the work we did for them.
