Most people love an enclosed porch, but the one in this Northwest Washington home was all but unusable—too small and awkward to even get into. “We mainly used it for storage,” says homeowner Randy Hill. “It didn’t flow with the house at all. And it was hot in summer, cold in winter.” The 1940s galley type kitchen was also cramped and sorely out-of-date.

Since Randy has been doing photography work for DG Liu for several years now, he knew where to turn. “I could see the quality of work they did and how clients raved about them,” he says.

DG Liu opened the back of the house, pushing it out by 13 feet, and moved the doorway between the dining room and kitchen to create a hallway effect from front to back. A two-story partial basement was added below, and two new upstairs rooms now serve as offices. The old porch is now a bright and open family room, and a handsome new stone patio sits out back. The kitchen is fully updated with all new appliances, lighting, cabinetry, granite countertops, and hardwood floors.

“We basically live in the addition,” Randy says, noting that not long ago, a friend visited who was impressed by what he saw. “You just answered my question,” he told Randy, meaning he knew who to call for his own home improvement project. Our crew has now completed an addition on his house too.
