Remodel and Design – Quality Appliances

When planning a Home Renovation choosing the right Appliances can be a bigger deal than a lot of people realize. Sure, you want them to look good and have great features, but you also need them to last. Figuring out which brands and models will last can sometimes be a bit of a gamble. It’s a good idea to listen to the advice of the specialists when it comes to reliability and ease of repair.

John Webb of John Webb Construction & Design has been designing new homes as well as remodels in Oregon & Washington, for over 20 years. This full home remodel with Master Bedroom and Guest Wing Additions, is a great example of his knack for practical design and beautiful finishes. At this stage in the project he is going over the foundation of the redesign, taking stock of the existing appliances and determining whether or not to encourage the owner to keep them.

Fair Oaks Full Home Remodel – Project Outline

John Webb Construction & Design have started a Full Home Remodel on Fair Oaks in Eugene. This remodel is pretty extensive with a Master Bedroom and Gym addition at one end of the house and a Guest Wing Addition at the other. This home, built around 1968, is already amazing, and had a thoughtful remodel done around 2000. The new owners love the place, but it doesn’t quite fit the size and lifestyle of the family. So, John is adding some modern flair, more square footage, room for the kids to play and grow, quiet offices for both parents to work and workout, and room for family and friends. In this post John Webb walks us through the scope of this project and what he has in mind for the finished look.

If you are inside, you’re inside, and if you are outside, you’re outside, if you have the French Doors open it’s just seamless.

Eugene Modern Home Remodel – Suttle Rd Project

John Webb provides us with a complete overview of a recent Modern Home Remodel that he had a great time working on. John has been a modern home designer for over 30 years. While he has done several more traditional home designs, this home needed to get the John Webb Upgrade.
“So, it was an A Frame built in the late Seventies I’m guessing. And it had reached the end of it’s first lifetime. It was a very conservatively built home, nothing special. You could see that the previous owners had changed this and added things without considering things structurally. So, we basically came in and got rid of all the things that they had added here and there…
