Only a homeowner can design the truly custom home.  The photos below illustrate another great example
of how to increase the value of your home by making the existing space more useful.  The parlor of this
beautiful residence sat just off the foyer.  The stairway to the second floor rises from the foyer and
served as partial partition.  The pros were that this layout was welcoming to guests, and gave the home
an open, engaging, entryway.  The downside was that the room was largely wasted space for work at
home parents of three.  With the high level of trim and the structural integrity of the stairs to remain
intact, it was not a simple task to convert this sitting room to an office, but well worth the effort.  
Electrical service was added for recessed lighting, receptacles, cable and a ceiling fan.  Blocking for a
wall mounted video monitor, ten lite French doors and transom are other notable features of this project.
