Adaptive Reuse in University Heights
This semi-detached house in University Heights adaptively-reused its own materials during a renovation. The original hardwood flooring was refinished and is prominent on the main level, and what was once pocket doors between the living room and eat-in kitchen have been transformed into barn doors. Newer flooring behind the breakfast bar island extends into an adjacent laundry nook and a step-down in front of the backdoor. The owner's bedroom upstairs has a skylit walk-in closet and a bathroom with double vanities. The finished lower level has a kitchenette-like laundry area, a bedroom, and a full bath with backlit mirror and beveled subway tiles along the walls and covering the shower stall. The house also has a detached garage at the rear of the backyard, fronting the alley.
