Screened Porch Addition
order to enjoy an unobstructed view of the water gardens and
provide entertainment space, the owners requested an enclosed outdoor
room that would maintain the style and flow of the house. The
octagonal great room is the striking design element in this
Bienville Southern Living House Plan designed by Stephen S. Fuller.
Ford proposed the construction of a similar octagonal element that maintained the exterior roof lines and the beautiful
garden view. He designed a 14’ x 24’
octagonal screened porch supported by large columns and unobstructed screening from ceiling to floor. The
ceiling extends to 14 feet and is white painted 1” x 4”
tongue and groove fir. The flooring is bluestone edged with
brick and extends beyond the screened enclosure to include an
outdoor patio to accommodate additional family and friends.
the end of 2003 Robin Ford took on a project for the remodel
of this 1970's Carroll County Rancher. This home's original
construction included 2 bedrooms and 1 full bath and had 1,000
square feet. The owners contemplated moving, but
decided to remodel.
Robin Ford Building and Remodeling, Inc. created an open floor plan, totally renovated kitchen, and made it more accessible to the main living space. Further, the job
included organization and display space through built-in cabinetry,
incorporated a gas fireplace into the family room, added a master
suite that includes a spacious master bath, and allowed space
for an attached garage. The total square footage increased to
1600 ft. and provided a space that fit the total family's needs.

The 2003 remodeling project drastically transformed a 1970's 2 bedroom/1 full bath, 1,000 square foot rancher.
An additional 600 square feet provided a master suite and bath, and interior renovations included a complete kitchen make-over, built-in cabinetry, family room gas fireplace, open floor plan, and an extra added bonus of an attached garage.
