In this Vestavia Hills home, Appleseed transformed a ranch style floorplan to a more open spacious living environment. The kitchen, bath, hallway and laundry rooms all received new custom cabinetry. The original hardwood floors remain throughout as well as the original stain glass front door. Though no major changes occurred on the exterior of the home, the window trim was painted darker to add more definition to the facade. In addition to this, Appleseed also crafted a new workshop adjacent to the main house to serve as the owner’s stain glass workshop. A feature of the home was the custom steel mantel that adorns the living room fireplace. The steel mantel adjacent to the original white marble hearth provides an architectural blend of both old and new.
