Cool Cabana Retro Renovation
Hal Collums Construction recently completed a cool renovation at a Mid-Century Modern house in Lakeview, built in 1952. The owner wanted to turn their “falling down” garage into a guest apartment and cabana, while retaining the classic styling of the house.
The time frame for the project was 3 months during the summer, and we delivered the finished product just in time for the owners to enjoy the gorgeous 2015 Fall weather. They now have a new party space as well as accommodations for guests during the holidays.
The existing two-car garage had extensive termite damage, and was not functional at all. Our Project Manager, Leah Glade, acting as the designer on the project, came up with a floor plan to make the space into a one bedroom apartment with a full bath and kitchenette.
Terrazzo tile that was leftover from an older interior renovation project was used in the bedroom. A coordinating tile was selected to use throughout the rest of the space. The bathroom was built with an open, airy feel to maximize the space.
Accent walls with color changing LED lights were designed and installed to add a bit more flair to this cool cabana.
