DRF Builders Featured Project: Custom Home Remodel

The owners of this Sonoma County home were ready to trade in cramped corners, unused space, and inconvenient layouts for a welcoming and functional living area. They needed a full remodel, and our team at DRF Builders were happy to create the custom-designed home of their dreams.

The dark, closed-off kitchen and living room coupled with an outdated downstairs bathroom left a lot to the imagination. Our creative team of designers and builders were excited to customize their entire downstairs living space.

Custom Kitchen Design and Remodel

The kitchen can be one of the busiest rooms of a household and it should spark creativity and harmony. When the owners of this Petaluma home realized their kitchen layout was more of an inconvenience than inspiration, they called DRF Builders in to help.

Our team was delighted to work with them to create a custom layout during this remodel. A big part of this project included opening up the floor plan by removing existing walls and unused pantry space. You can see the striking transformation in the before and after galleries below.

Livingroom Design and Remodel

Even with ample windows, the layout of this Petaluma living room felt dark and uninviting. The area required a full remodel and our team was eager to bring new life to the space. The before and after galleries below demonstrate how our team incorporated both functionality and luxury in this custom design.

Bathroom Remodel

Before the remodel, this bathroom lacked attractive storage and adequate lighting, and was full of outdated features. Our team was able to design and build a new bathroom that felt clean and bright, and featured modern fixtures that will save the homeowners money in the long run.
