DAVE SPECKMAN

Renovating? Yep, I Got Stories! In most regions of the country (or world!), bringing up the subject of renovation elicits handwringing and teeth gnashing sorts of reactions, along with plenty of nightmare tales. The contractors who took the money and didn’t finish the job; the job that felt longer than the 100-years-war; the job that got done only to find it wasn’t done right ... You would think that in my work, scouting hundreds of homes for this publication over the course of two decades, that I would have heard every version of renovation horror story possible. But the truth is, I could count the botched jobs I have heard of on one hand. What I do hear is a gush of accolades for the way renovation projects have played out—and for the designers and contractors who made them happen. The amazing thing is most of the renovation love stories I hear are about second homes, meaning the homeowner oversaw everything from a distance, and distance is typically a recipe for frustration. Nevertheless, in the end, not only are the projects stunning but everyone becomes friends—as in, c’mon over for a cocktail kind of friends .... The three homes we feature in this issue are light years apart in terms of style and the year they were built. There’s a lumber-era home in downtown Traverse City, a mid-century modern house on Walloon Lake and a 1990s condo in Glen Arbor. Each renovation could not be more different from the next; each could not be more beautiful (see for yourself!). And in the end, everyone went home happy.

THREE PROS TELL US WHAT’S HOT IN SMART HOME TECHNOLOGY

By Elizabeth Edwards

Who: Susan Kohler, designer and sales representative at Trend Window & Design in Traverse City.

Who: Tim Stuhr, system designer/project manager American Home Technology in Harbor Springs and Traverse City.

With a degree in Merchandising Management and Environmental Design, Susan has assisted Trend Window & Design in window designs for some of the biggest projects in Northern Michigan, including Munson Medical Center and Northwestern Michigan College.

During his 20 years in the industry, Tim has seen a sea-change in what constitutes a smart home.

What’s hot in smart home technology? Pulling down your shades—from hundreds of miles away using Hunter Douglas’s Powerview Motorization system, available on a line of shades that includes the new Sonnette Cellular Roller Shades (shown here). “We have a large demographic of people that leave for the winter, and to have the ability to move their shades in Northern Michigan while they are somewhere warm and sunny from a smartphone or tablet is a huge benefit to their piece of mind while away,” Susan says.

What’s hot in smart home technology? We are putting in more commercial or professional -based WIFI systems in residences because there is so much demand for connectivity. Music and movies are streamed in nearly every home. Having a robust and reliable network connection is a must. We also deal with a lot of seasonal customers, so connectivity to their homes when they are away goes hand in hand with a good network. Having a professionally designed and installed network is important to make sure your wired and wireless products can communicate properly. To put in that infrastructure and wiring at the time of construction can save a lot of headaches in the future when technology changes. With a properly wired home and/or designed system, upgrading in the future is a lot easier. More Trends!

CABINETRY COUNTERTOPS WOOD FLOORING

Who: Todd Waara, owner Waara Technologies in Traverse City.

Visit either our showrooms and meet Carolyn Andrews, our kitchen and bath designer.

Since Todd started Waara Technologies in 2000 as a two-man operation, the business has grown to a dozen employees. In 2015 the company was named to the TopTen of the Hagerty Small Business of the Year. From audio and video technologies, the company has moved into home automation and home control in a big way.

Carolyn will assess your needs and help turn your ideas into reality!

What’s hot in smart home technology? “We are starting to see a lot of interest in voice control for home automation. People want to integrate their Amazon Alexa or other device into their homecontrol network. There is still a need for control panels, apps, or remotes, as voice control is a long way from perfect, but it is definitely a growing part of the industry. Another thing that we see more of is actually a return to some older school products like turntables. It's an interesting paradox.” —E.E.

espite its humble name, the Slabtown neighborhood located in the northwestern corner of Traverse City is one of the city’s most desirable, situated as it is a stone’s

throw from West Bay, and at the gateway to beautiful Leelanau County. Slabtown is named for its modest homes built for lumber workers at the turn of the twentieth century and made from the material most readily available: wood scraps from the sawmills where they spent their days. Leafy streets are lined with colorful two-stories, bungalows and cottages that are both classically charming and notoriously slipshod. Common projects facing owners of the aging structures include foundation replacement, insulation, windows and mechanical upgrades. It’s enough to make a few opt for demolition and reconstruction. Eric and Shannon Olshove recognized the drawbacks after living for almost 20 years in their 1890s house on Monroe Street. Its leaky basement, winter chill, and awkward layout had them house-shopping a few years ago, but the pull of Slabtown’s charm and convenience was undeniable. Wishing to maintain the authenticity of the century-old home, they opted to renovate rather than rebuild. Their contractor, Scott Norris of Scott Norris Construction, warned them that remodeling could be more difficult and more expensive than rebuilding. The couple quickly approved a design by Caleb Norris of Norris Design Productions, but then decided to wait. “The timing didn’t seem right, and we wanted to make sure it was a smart investment,” says Eric.

Then one winter day, Shannon declared that her only wish for Christmas was new hardware for the broken lazy Susan cabinet in the kitchen. Eric responded, “Well then, we might as well do the whole renovation.” Over the coming year they learned that with careful decisions, creative sourcing, and a lot of hands-on involvement, they could achieve much more than a smoothly turning corner cabinet. By removing a tacked-on 1950s addition and reconfiguring the back of the house, Norris and his team created a generous open kitchen and dining space that opens to a backyard deck. Eric was closely involved in the design process and requested three tall double-hung kitchen windows that fill the space with soft light even on a dreary day. Shaker-style cabinetry and oak flooring maintain the classic look of the older section of the house, but a large pantry and upgraded appliances satisfy Shannon’s need for efficiency. A new mudroom stops clutter and dirt at the back door.

Upstairs, Norris took care to include architectural features that would maintain the old-house feel: angled ceilings, classic doors and a staircase that splits at the landing. One side leads to the children’s rooms and the other to the couple’s tranquil master suite. Here Shannon explains how they found the cut-glass bathroom doors for sale on Washington Street and the hardware at Odom Reuse in Grawn. Including antique elements lent authenticity to the new wing of the house, and were easier on the budget. Norris acknowledges the challenge of working on an old house where nothing is plumb or level, but he used creative techniques to tie the new to the old and wrapped it all up in new buttery yellow siding and mint green shingles—a bold choice that Eric and Shannon made after noticing the color combo on a local brewery. “We like the variety of color you can see when you look down the streets here, and it has a sort of 1920s look,” says Eric. Thanks to owners with a respect for history and a contractor with the skills to complement it, the cheerful yellow house on Monroe lives for another century— in style.

small porcelain tray on the bar sums up the Leavy family’s attitude about both life and their cottage on Walloon Lake. “Why limit happy to an hour?” the quote reads. In case you had any doubts about the Leavys penchant for

relaxed fun, know there is a Nerf basketball rim on the doorjamb leading into the small kitchen. Pat Leavy is one of Northern Michigan’s top real estate executives, but when he’s at the family’s renovated early 1970s cottage on the lake’s west arm, he focuses on fun. He limits visits to his second-floor office as much as he can, so he can spend time with his wife, Lisa, and two kids, Kelly, 18, and Patrick, 15.

Originally from the Milford area, the family purchased the mid-century modern, 1,700-square-foot house in 2007. “It was dated and run down,” Pat remembers. In 2013 the Leavys were ready to renovate, planning to nearly double the size of the home. “Our goal was to keep the original integrity but update it,” Pat says. The couple enlisted the help of architect Greg Presley, known for his sensitive remodeling designs, builder Jim Matthews, and interior designer Kelly Paulsen to bring the plan to fruition. Greg enjoyed working on the house, one of just a few remaining mid-century examples on Walloon. With its post-and-beam construction that creates open, airy space, and its generous windows, the style represents the buoyant mood of the post-WWII years, Greg explains. “The challenge in the Leavy home was to honor the functional flow of the original house, with its great two-story open living room and overlooking balcony,” he says.

THE SPEC TACU L AR OUTDOOR ENTERTAINING SPACE WAS A WELL-THOUG HT- OUT ADD ON .

Much of the solution was to add a two-car garage with an apartment on top and a two-story turret that connects the new addition with the main structure. The turret houses the mudroom, the fabulous office overlooking the lake. Much desired extra entertaining space (the Leavys love to throw parties!) comes from the addition of a small room on the lakeside outfitted with a bar, that opens onto a covered patio with an outside wood-burning fireplace and roll-down screens. Pat enjoys hunting down and furnishing the house with authentic mid-century furniture and accessories, including period Herman Miller furniture and a Louis Poulsen artichoke light. “They’re very hard to find,” he says of the light. “It took me four years, and I had to bid at an auction in Chicago to get it.” The mid-century pieces mingle perfectly with framed original Coca-Cola ads featuring Pat’s mother, Joanne Leavy, who modeled for the company in the late 1950s.

Built to Last But all of that is just décor teaser for the real party starter in this cottage: a disco ball hung from the living room ceiling. While it is not original to the home, it is original to the Leavy-era of this home. “The disco ball was one of the first things we hung up when we moved in,” Pat says.

e want this place to feel like a warm hug." That was the extent of the design direction that homeowners Tim and Patty MacEachern gave to Liz Jerore before she launched a thoughtful redesign of the couple’s lake-

view home at The Homestead in Glen Arbor. Interpreting an abstract request like that can only result in success when a designer and client enjoy a highly collaborative relationship. And that, says Jerore, is a guiding principle for how she runs her business, At Home Cabinetry and Interiors in Traverse City. “There has to be synergy between us,” says Liz. “The success of any project is due a hundred percent to close collaboration.” The partnership began when Tim and Patty asked Liz to design their “Deer Den”: a handsome getaway space where Tim houses part of his large collection of model cars. Later, they called on Liz when the need to replace a broken stove ballooned into a full-fledged kitchen remodel. The MacEacherns then realized that the whole house should follow suit for a completely updated and consistent look. Liz developed a plan that prioritized smart use of space, an elegant yet modern aesthetic, and the couple's vague but heartfelt design direction. To add to the challenge, the project included some existing built-ins as well as a set of treasured silk blend rugs woven in a traditional motif. Careful color and fabric selections help these elements naturally flow with the new design. The plan included custom cabinetry with clever storage solutions in every available space, character maple flooring, standout carpentry and lighting—all enveloped in a complex materials palette. ➤

The broad mix of materials in the new décor prevents the stiffness that can come from a “matchy" look. "There are so many metals in here!” says Liz, as she points out the gleaming copper and nickel in the kitchen, matte black bath fixtures, and an iron chandelier over a pewter-finished table. It all works thanks to careful attention to proportion, color and details—lots of them. Traditional textures appear in an artful mix of tiles in the master bath, a custom paint treatment in the powder room, and houndstooth wool on the backside of a chair. Other elements seem a bit industrial, like the new black steel spindles on the staircase, a major design feature visible from the entire main floor. There’s also a custom mantel with exposed bolts, an unexpected feature that casually balances the more formal elements. What sounds busy merges into a warm and alluring harmony. Building consistency from one floor to the next in the three-floor hillside space required careful planning. Liz explains how the new crown mouldings required slightly different sizing on each floor to appear consistent.

She also used coffered ceilings to help define spaces with a hint of luxury. A single paint color—an icy gray with a blue cast—ties everything together. "It's luxurious but not ostentatious," says Liz. The master suite illustrates her point. Its elaborate ceiling is a marvel of carpentry and lighting, yet the room’s small scale and long view to the water make it inviting. The tiny bathroom is as smart as it is luxe, with custom storage dressed in gleaming nickel, tile, and glass. There’s even a mirror that slides over a window, offering the option of natural light or privacy. On the main floor next to the kitchen, Liz outfitted a breakfast space to become an indulgent lounge area with a generous round table and wooden chairs with backs that rise high and curve around those seated. Indeed, a most fitting embrace for her clients and partners in design. Diane Kolak is a freelance designer and writer from Traverse City. diane@page9design.com // Photos Exposures by RAH.
