editor’s note Our Special Remodeling Issue is one of my favorite issues of the year. I love to

see the creative solutions remodeling contractors come up with to help homeowners get the space of their dreams. In this special remodeling issue, we feature four amazing projects. First, on Page 14, is a whole house remodel. Tuggle Design devised an expansion/remodel plan to give Plano homeowners a new master bedroom, additional bedrooms upstairs, a completely revamped kitchen and a modern living room and den. Next, on Page 16, Dal-Rich Design & Construction gave local homeowners a brand-new outdoor room complete with an outdoor kitchen, bar, entertainment system and custom landscape lighting. Then, on Page 18, D&D Remodeling Design added a new master bedroom and an oversized master closet to a Prosper home. Finally, on Page 20, see how USI Remodeling made a cramped, poorly laid out master bath more functional and beautiful. As winter arrives, you don’t want to miss the handy winter checklist for your home on Page 26. From repairing foundation issues and checking weather tightness of all exterior surfaces to checking the interior of your home for leaks, don’t wait until it’s too late to address home repairs. Fixing minor problems early and maintaining your heating and cooling systems will save you a great deal of money in the long run and keep your family safe during the cooler months. We wrap up this issue with delicious recipes from Whole Foods Market for an amazing Thanksgiving feast. Enjoy! AMANDA FLATTEN Editor

green house

By JEFFREY JACOBY

the metal, the exceedingly high toxicity level of mercury and overwhelming quantity of out-of-service lighting means that responsible recycling or disposal is a must. Most packaging for the cute little curly-Q light bulbs will tell you to simply seal your old, burned-out CFL in a couple of plastic baggies and throw it into the household waste bin. Good advice for the ecological sado-masochist, but not a sustainable long-term solution. Instead, recycling options are available in most communities through a takeback program sponsored by Home Depot: Take the expired and unbroken light bulb to any of their stores nationwide and hand it to a sales associate for environmentally conscious handling, transport and recycling. You can also go to www.cleanup.org to find recycling centers near your community. Home Depot deserves a huge green star for this program. Without

Hi-O Quicksilver and Don’t Throw Away! When I speak with my father about the health hazards related to mercury contamination, he inevitably says with a mix of fond reverie and retrospective trepidation, “When I was a kid, we used to play with mercury all the time. We called it ‘quicksilver’ and had a heckuva lot of fun with it. Who knew?” Luckily, we know now what we didn’t know then — namely, that quicksilver is a known neurotoxin that bioaccumulates up the food chain from small fish all the way to our dinner plates. Overexposure to even small amounts of mercury inhibits brain development, disrupts the endocrine and central nervous systems and has been linked with autism. A mere tablespoon of mercury can contaminate a 20-acre lake for a year. In other words, don’t mess with mercury. Some household products — in particular the ever-popular fluorescent light bulbs and tubes — contain small amounts of mercury that can prove dangerous to our families and our environment and therefore warrant some discussion on safe recycling or disposal options. One of the main questions people have about compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) is what to do with them when they expire. While they’re great for the climate and your electricity bill, they’re not so great when tossed in the trash, especially when you consider the sheer volume of CFLs entering the waste stream. Sales of energy-efficient CFLs doubled in 2007 to reach 290 million units, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which means a lot of quicksilver is out there in American homes and businesses. Wal-Mart alone sold more than 125 million last year. With efforts to reduce energy consumption on the rise, expect a correlative increase in the number of CFLs in the marketplace. While each bulb or tube contains only small amounts of 12

it, the number of options for responsible end-of-life care for CFLs drops dramatically. Contact your state and federal legislators to ask for a comprehensive takeback recycling act for these and other toxic products to ensure more permanent access to programs like this one. (Note: If a CFL breaks inside your home, EPA outlines a series of steps you should take in order to protect yourself and your family at www.energystar.gov. In this case, you should enclose the broken pieces in a glass jar and take it to your local household hazardous waste facility for proper disposal.) Incidentally, many people wonder just what happens when CFLs end up in the trash. Experts estimate that nearly 100 percent of CFLs break en route to the landfill, releasing mercury vapor and dust into garbage trucks, dumpsters and the ambient air. Data indicates that fluorescents can lead to mercury levels up to ten times the EPA health and safety standards at landfills and transfer stations. What’s more, inside a landfill, mercury often breaks down anaerobically into its more toxic, more dangerous organic form methylmercury. In fact, landfills appear to be a major source of methylated mercury. One study of landfill gas destined for venting found methylmercury at levels one thousand times higher than typically measured in open air. So if these bulbs contain mercury, why purchase them in the first place? Keep in mind that the amount of mercury pollution prevented by saving energy — often produced by coal-fired power plants, which emit mercury into the atmosphere — is greater than the amount of mercury in CFLs, meaning we should undoubtedly continue to utilize more energy efficient lighting. That said, we should also demand accountability from the CFL manufacturers to start phasing out mercury in favor of less toxic materials. In doing so, we can keep the quicksilver out of our air, water and soil from the outset, perhaps allowing kids like my father once was to lead healthier, safer lives. Jeffrey Jacoby is program director for Texas Campaign for the Environment, a grassroots nonprofit working locally and statewide to press for sustainable waste and recycling policies.

Wide Open Expansion

BEFORE Photography by JD MCLEOD

A NORTH PLANO HOME GETS REVAMPED AND MODERNIZED Prior to an extensive remodel, this North Plano family’s 14-year-old, 3,000-square-foot home needed more space and better functionality. Twin boys were sharing a bedroom, and the master suite was inconveniently located upstairs. The kitchen wasn’t open enough and had a breakfast bar adding to the feeling of a closed space. The owners also wanted a more contemporary exterior look for their dated stucco Mediterranean home and its arched entryway. Finally, the ceiling in the two-story entry and formal living area presented a structural problem as the architect drew plans for expanding the second story space without raising the roof. Tuggle Design had the perfect solution for the family. The front-entry arch and door were redesigned and squared off to create a more contemporary feeling. A new double-door added elegance to the entry. The added second-story space was converted to create two extra bedrooms and baths upstairs. The existing pitch of the roof was kept, allowing the ceiling to be raked to a nine-foot flat ceiling. In the kitchen, the breakfast bar was removed, and a central work island was installed to create a spacious, open, airy feeling. Under the staircase, an in-wall fish tank was converted into a cozy wine room with an Ikea wine system and wine cooler. The master bedroom was moved downstairs, and a small amount of square footage was added to create a spacious master bath and closet. In addition, the downstairs utility room was converted to a small office, and the two-car garage was converted to a three-car space. In all, the home’s square footage increased by 1,200 square feet. 14

The show-stopper in the living room is the Thassos white Grecian marble fireplace with a stainless-steel surround. Under the staircase, an in-wall fish tank was converted into a cozy wine room featuring oak wood cabinets with IKEA wine racks.

Now the home features an open, airy and contemporary feel with light walls, modern features and ample light throughout. 15


Entertaining in Style These West Plano homeowners wanted to upgrade their outdoor environment to better meet the needs of their growing family and lifestyle. They wanted a plan that would integrate the existing pool and spa with a whole new outdoor-entertainment concept, as well as add a separate private patio retreat. Hosting several large gatherings a year, the family needed a functional outdoor environment to accommodate large groups of people. They wanted a covered entertainment area filled with amenities that they could use year round. They also wanted the space to complement their home’s exterior and increase the overall value of their residence. Challenges included: limited space for the outdoor room, architectural challenges and stringent city building line/set-back restrictions. The homeowners hired Dal-Rich Design, which has extensive knowledge in outdoorliving construction, to come up with a design. Dal-Rich devised a plan that connected the home’s main living room area to a fully covered cabana so the homeowners could privately enter and exit their outdoor living room in all weather conditions. A gabled roof system was designed with high ceilings using cedar beams to complement the natural wood elements on the interior of the home. A large-screen TV was placed above the fireplace and is visible from both the interior patio area and the pool and spa to accommodate large gatherings to watch the big game. The design also strongly considered traffic flow plus orientation for seating and cooking while entertaining. There is a state-of-the-art outdoor kitchen with room to prepare food and beverages. A 24-foot long L-shaped island allows the homeowners to cook while interacting with guests and provides additional bar seating. A traditional 8-person table sits in the center space. Special design elements include custom lighting, fans, integrated electronics and a landscaping/irrigation system. A serene, private patio off the master bedroom was also designed so the owners could enjoy private time in the early mornings and evenings. The space features a small covered structure, stone planters and seating walls, iron elements and an illuminated custom water feature to provide a relaxing focal point.

Finished out by Closet Factory, the closet features a center island, shoe racks, multiple double and triple hanging racks and seasonal storage. The closet also has a flat-screen TV.

A PROSPER HOME WITH A NEW MASTER BEDROOM AND EXCESS STORAGE

214.388.0131

Too many clothes and too little space prompted this master bedroom and master closet remodel in Prosper. Mrs. Kauffman’s wardrobe had taken up every closet in the house with hanging racks in every room and in the garage, so something drastic needed to be done. The Kauffman’s called on D&D Remodeling to problem solve. D&D Remodeling devised a plan to add a completely new master bedroom and turn the former master into an efficient, elegant closet that was designed and finished out by Closet Factory. The new closet features a center island, shoe racks, multiple double and triple hanging racks and additional seasonal storage on top. The closet has a flat-screen TV with surround sound so the homeowner can watch TV as she gets ready for the workday. In the master bedroom addition, D&D Remodeling installed lightly scrapped hardwood floors, updated lighting and clad windows. Inside, 200 square feet of space was added. On the addition’s exterior, D&D matched the original exterior finish to make sure the entire project was architecturally and aesthetically correct.

Relaxation is just a bath away in this Kohler Archer 100+ gallon soaking tub, which is surrounded by tile from StonePeak Ceramics. Doralfe Plumbing fixtures were used in the tub and shower.

Redefined Floor Plan IMPROVING FUNCTIONALITY IN A MASTER BATHROOM The LaFebres were baffled by an odd floor plan in their master bathroom. Just off of the 128-square-foot bath were five sets of hinged doors — one leading to the bedroom, two doors leading to the single closet, another to the toilet area and yet another to a linen closet. All these doors interrupted the flow of the small space and created headaches for the couple. The LaFebres asked USI Remodeling to solve their spatial dilemma. USI Remodeling created a whole new floor plan and contemporary design style that boasts an open feel. The interior wall between the master bath and closet was reframed and angled, creating just one entry point into the closet. The linen closet was removed and a custom linen cabinet was added inside the master closet, opening up the bathroom space even more. The wall enclosing the toilet was reframed and a pocket door was added. Now, the room has an open space plan and only has two sets of swinging doors — one on the closet and one leading to the bedroom. Not only does the room have a better functionality, but it was also updated with modern, decadent finishes and amenities. A DuPont Quartz counter complements the cherry vanity from Restoration Hardware’s Turner Bath Collection. The Kohler-Archer soaking tub is surrounded by StonePeak Ceramics tile from American Tile Supply. The frameless glass shower adds to the open feel of the room. Now the LaFebres can enjoy a relaxing, modern bathroom without dodging swinging doors.

What’s Your Design Style? ABOVE: Colors in this sleek contemporary space include black, white and gray, with a splash of colorful artwork on the wall. Three sparkling chandeliers add drama to the room.

Asking these questions will help you figure out your style.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE ROOM IN THE HOUSE?

there are a million decisions to

Look at the elements of this room that make you feel good — the cozy chair and ottoman? The black and white photographs on the wall? Maybe it’s the warm sunlight. Is it sleek and spare, or rich with layers of texture? Each of these things is a clue to your inner designer.

Decorating or remodeling a room can be intimidating. There are a lot of decisions to make about color, patterns, furniture, accessories, fabrics, layout … the list goes on. To make it all easier you need to know what your design style is.

DO YOU HAVE MULTIPLES?

If you have items that are the same color, shape or style scattered around the house, you have a big clue to your style right in front of you. Are there items with floral patterns or nautical elements? You may be a fan of country or beach house style and not know it yet. WHAT ARE YOUR MUST-HAVES?

Is your desk really too small but you can’t bear to part with it? What about that old rocker in the corner? If you’re keeping items because of their form rather than their function, pay attention to that style.

house& home | N o v e m b e r 2 0 0 9 | h o u s e a n d h o m e o n l i n e . com


WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITES?

COTTAGE:

Make a list of your favorite colors, patterns and textures. Then look at them and see if you lean toward bold colors or soothing neutrals? Plaids or solids? Leather or silk? Metals or wood?

Light and airy, with a relaxed and romantic feeling. A soft color palette that includes corals, pinks, greens, white and splashes of yellow, often in floral patterns. Layers of texture are important and are made with woven baskets, exposed wood, natural fiber and braided rugs.

There are many design styles out there, but these descriptions will give you a starting place. TRADITIONAL: CONTEMPORARY:

Clean lines, bold contrast and sculptural furnishings. Colors range from bright to neutral, but black is a defining color. White, cream, brown and taupe color schemes are popular, often adding a bold pop of color in some accessories.

Rich colors and lush accents. Showcase rooms are often traditional in style, with leather wingback chairs, Oriental rugs, and urn-shaped lamps. Warm greens and blues with medium to dark colored woods are popular. There is also an emphasis on detailed patterns and trims.

23


OLD WORLD:

Traditional look with a European flair. Old World favorites include deep, sophisticated colors, such as deep garnet, rich blue and smoky topaz, and large, heavy furniture. Look for natural stone materials, such as marble, granite or limestone, and a lot of texture in the fabric, wall coverings and floors. This Lakewood living room showcases a traditional style with muted fabrics and complementary patterns.

The most important design rule to remember is that there are no rules! You may not fit neatly into one style category, and that’s fine. But knowing a little about your style will turn an intimidating task into a fun one. Courtesy of Family Features

Winterizing Your Home A to-do list for the cooler months ABOVE: For energy efficiency, consider a tankless hot water heater like this GE indoor tankless water heater.

As the cooler months approach, it’s time to think about ways to save money and have peace of mind that your home is safe and sound. This checklist will help you focus on specific areas of your home that should be maintained in preparation for the winter season. GROUNDS

Before winter sets in, inspect your roof for loose or damaged shingles, check ceilings for signs of leaks, and check and seal any foundation cracks. A company like SafeRock Inspections can inspect your home from top to bottom to make sure everything is safe and sound.

26

 Check window wells, dry wells and storm drains for debris or blockage.  Repair any driveway cracks and/or heaved or settled walkways.  Trim all trees and shrubs that are too close to the house.  Check (ideally during a rainstorm) for rainwater drainage away from the foundation.  Clean and put summer furnishings away.  Drain and store garden hoses.

WINTERIZING YOUR HOME EXTERIOR SURFACES

 Check weather tightness of all exterior surfaces and components.  Check for deterioration of painted or finished areas. If too late for a full paint job, prime and touch up bare wood surfaces.  Caulk and seal all joints in siding, around windows and doors.  Check and seal any foundation cracks.  Improve weather-stripping at exterior doors and windows as needed.  Reset storms and screens where required.  Look for any signs of insect or pest activity around the foundation and at wood components close to the ground.

ATMOS ENERGY www.atmosenergy.com

CLASSIC SUPEROOF ROOF

    

Check for loose, damaged or missing roofing. Check eave areas for signs of moisture build-up or damage. Check the condition of chimneys. Check flashings for signs of lifting or damage and repair as needed. Check and clean all gutters (eaves troughs) and downspouts.

ATTIC

 Check ventilation openings for nests or other blockage.  Check the position and condition of insulation for uniform coverage.  Look for any signs of excessive moisture or heat buildup. INTERIOR ROOMS

    

Check all areas for signs of roof or plumbing leakage. Have any fireplaces or wood stoves and flues checked and professionally cleaned. Reset automatic timers for the change in daylight hours. Check all smoke/carbon monoxide detectors. Replace batteries if more than a year old. Test Ground-Fault Circuit-Interrupters (GFCI’s) using built-in test buttons.

HEATING/COOLING SYSTEMS

      

Clean all elements of the cooling system. Remove (or winterize) room air conditioners. Follow manufacturer instructions for the maintenance of your heating system. Change or clean heating system filters on warm air systems (now and regularly). Check heating and cooling systems for any evidence of water leaks. If present, clean and test the humidifier. Have your heating system serviced annually by a qualified heating serviceperson before the heating season to keep it functioning efficiently and properly.

PLUMBING

 Drain exterior water lines and open taps (in cold areas).  Insulate water lines that are subject to freezing.  Check the condition and temperature setting of the water heater. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for the temperature setting.  Check the plumbing system and fixtures for any evidence of water leaks or blocked drains.  Confirm proper operation of any sump pumps and free flow of the drain line. This checklist is only a guideline for maintenance, but it will help you have a safe, energy-efficient winter. Hiring a home inspector or professional contractor is the best option if you have specific concerns or questions.

Celery Root And Potato Gratin Serves 12 1/2 tablespoon butter 1 1/2 cups reduced fat (2 percent) milk 2 cups half-and-half 2 teaspoons chopped garlic 2 tablespoons flour Salt and pepper to taste 2 pounds celery root, peeled and thinly sliced

Herb-Crusted Turkey Breast With Mushroom-Leek Stuffing Serves 6 to 8 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature 1 tablespoon chopped garlic 4 cups thinly sliced leeks (white and light green parts only) 1/2 pound mixed mushrooms, sliced 1/4 cup fresh bread crumbs 1/4 cup grated Pecorino Romano cheese

1 1/2 teaspoons chopped parsley, divided 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped rosemary, divided 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped sage, divided 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped thyme, divided Salt and pepper to taste 1 (2 1/2-pound) boneless turkey breast

Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the garlic and quickly cook, stirring constantly, for 10 seconds. Add leeks and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms, increase heat to high, and cook until softened and all liquid has evaporated, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and add bread crumbs, cheese, 1 teaspoon each parsley, rosemary, sage and thyme, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Stir well and set stuffing aside. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Combine remaining 1 tablespoon butter with remaining parsley, rosemary, sage and thyme and set aside at room temperature. Butterfly the turkey breast with a sharp boning knife to lay it open flat. Arrange turkey, skin side down, on a cutting board, cover with plastic wrap, then pound out lightly with a meat mallet to flatten it a bit and make it an even thickness all over. Remove plastic wrap and season all over with salt and pepper. Spread stuffing over the breast, leaving a 3/4-inch border around the edge. Roll it up as tightly as possible and secure by tying with butchers’ twine at 1-inch intervals. Rub turkey all over with reserved herb butter, placing some butter under the skin, if possible. Place the stuffed turkey breast on a buttered or oiled roasting pan (or on a baking rack set down in a pan) and roast, uncovered, until turkey reaches an internal temperature of 165°F, about 1 1/2 hours. (Cover the turkey with foil if the top begins to get too brown.) Remove from the oven and let turkey sit, covered, for 15 to 20 minutes. Carefully remove and discard twine, then slice and serve.

1 3/4 pounds Yukon gold potatoes, unpeeled and thinly sliced 1 1/2 cups regular or pankostyle bread crumbs 1 cup grated Swiss cheese, such as Emmentaler or Jarlsberg 2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley

Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter a 13-x9-inch casserole dish and set aside. Whisk together milk, half-and-half, garlic, flour, salt and pepper in a large pot over medium heat. Gently stir in celery root and potatoes and bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer, stirring frequently and gently, until thickened slightly, about 10 minutes. Transfer contents of pot to prepared dish and spread out evenly. Scatter breadcrumbs and cheese over the top and bake until tender, bubbly and golden brown, 45 to 50 minutes. Set aside to let rest for 15 minutes. Garnish with parsley and serve.

Pumpkin Apple Pie 1/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar 1 tablespoon cornstarch 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided 1/3 cup water 2 tablespoons butter 2 Granny Smith or Fuji apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced (about 3 cups)

Serves 8 1 egg 1/3 cup granulated sugar 3/4 cup fresh or canned pumpkin purée 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger 3/4 cup evaporated milk 1 (9-inch) unbaked pie shell (in pie pan)

Preheat oven to 425°F. Put brown sugar, cornstarch, 1/2 teaspoon of the cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, water and butter into a medium pot and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil. Add apples and cook, tossing to coat in sugar mixture, 3 to 4 minutes more. Remove from heat and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together egg, granulated sugar, pumpkin, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, cloves, ginger and milk until well combined. Pour apple mixture into pie shell then spoon pumpkin mixture evenly over the top. Bake for 10 minutes then reduce temperature to 375°F and bake until filling is just set in the middle, about 40 minutes more. Set aside on a wire rack to let cool completely then cut into slices.
