This residence constructed in 1939 was in dire need to accommodate its growing family. A two story addition was added to make room for a master bath and dressing room while the first floor became a study. With a custom dressing room and built ins for the study added much needed functionality and flow to the home. A new front porch overhang, roof, and garage doors rounded out the new look.

While keeping true to its 1902 heritage, all five bathrooms and complete gut of the kitchen were part of this extensive renovation. A mudroom addition was added along with a very inviting cedar deck above.

This 1985 Contemporary original oak kitchen was gutted to the studs. The home owner was after a fresh new look to appeal to their entertaining needs. Kempton widened openings, added windows and replaced all the doors and trim. The kitchen is equipped with a full Miele suite of appliances and has completed this transformation for years of enjoyment.

This 1890 Colonial kitchen and full bath was gutted to the studs after a very tired remodel from 2001. The space beckoned for more light and a place to set a table. With those two thoughts in motion Kempton went to work. White oak flooring was installed complementing the cabinetry and timeless subway tile. The space was transformed into a warm and whimsical haven to be enjoyed for decades.

This colonial was given a much needed facelift consisting of gutting the first floor and adding a 900 square foot deck. The chef kitchen inside lets the homeowner entertain with ease with the ability to spill out onto the deck.

This residence had a very dark kitchen, eating nook and bathroom crammed into a very small area. Kempton gutted the entire space and added a 16' x 24' family room addition off the back of the house which allowed this space to breathe. A half bath, laundry room and mudroom was added which benefits for everyday living for a busy family. In addition the sun porch was revamped into a four season room with french doors spilling out to the deck. The cherry cabinets, porcelain tile and white oak floors blend to make a harmonious living space for this couple and their two sons.

This residence is home to a teacher and a photographer who were looking for more living space from the existing footprint. The answer was to tear down the louvered three season porch and add an inviting extension to the living area, while incorporating a custom half bath and mudroom.

This Roslindale home was given a much needed rehab to the kitchen and back porches creating more living space and functionality. While more windows where added to lighten up the space which intern accented the custom kitchen and casework. All the trim work was reproduced from the original moldings from 1890.
