With grown children leaving the nest and growing children still at home this couple wanted to make sure everything about their remodel had family in mind.
Barbara and Jobay Cooney thought they had seen every house on the market, but then Barbara came across this one. “I walked into the house and made them an offer,” Barbara says. “I instantly knew what I wanted to do.” The Cooneys had done a number of renovations before so this wasn’t their first “rodeo.” In this cottage-style ranch they butted out the living room 2 feet but otherwise kept the same footprint.
Within the original shell they took down several walls and added others to rearrange the room placement. Barbara shares, “It all allowed the family to live a lot bigger.” And living bigger is something to consider when you have mom, dad, four children, and two dogs living under the same roof.
