Understanding the needs of the family, as well as their preferred style and functionality, enabled an effective communication process throughout the project. “We consistently presented three design options, all usually within the same budgetary scope but translating design preferences in slightly different manners,” says Schneeberger. Each decision informed the next round of options, allowing for a smooth transition between all the different elements of the project.

Once the layout and structural choices were determined, AP Kimball set about transforming the space into a home that reflects the vibrant personality and long-term desires of the clients. The Kimball husband-and-wife team brings complementary skills to bear upon the projects they undertake. Peter Kimball masterfully gives new life to aging homes, lifting the years away to reveal the hidden potential of a structure. Angela Kimball specializes in kitchen planning, and her years of helping homeowners navigate the ever-changing trends and dizzying options makes a potentially overwhelming process stress free.

Working within a tight timeline of just over four months for construction completion and the infrequent trips the homeowner made from their other home in the Carolinas, the Kimballs and Siemasko + Verbridge had to be prepared to maximize meeting times and be sure they captured the creative desires of their client in the most efficient way possible.

“The homeowner would arrive and we would immediately go through the list of choices, make decisions quickly, and move on. But I don’t think anyone felt rushed. We were all on the same page and never hit any setbacks. It was truly a seamless project,” says Angela Kimball. Schneeberger echoes that sentiment, stating that the team of three—architect, builder and homeowner—were a good fit and effortlessly moved through the decision process, creating a home that encourages the lifestyle the owners always dreamed of having.

“We now have a home that lives like we thought it should,” says the satisfied homeowner.

All in all, an easy, breezy team of professionals successfully collaborated on a project that now allows a busy family to truly relax and enjoy their home in the way they always hoped for and in a place they have always loved.
