Varian Construction was awarded the 2020 Sand Dollar Award for Best Addition on a Single-Family Home during the annual event sponsored by the Collier Building Industry Association’s Sales and Marketing Council.
The Sand Dollar Awards are presented each year to member builders, developers, architects, remodelers, interior design firms, landscape architects, trades and marketing, sales and/or advertising professionals who have demonstrated building, design and marketing excellence in Collier County. Due to Covid-19, the awards ceremony was held virtually this year.
For Varian’s Best Addition on a Single-Family Home, the project’s objective was to create an addition to the client’s home that would include a separate, private space for aging parents, additional living area and a separate office space.
For the new addition to the home, Varian Construction carried the same porcelain plank flooring from the main area of the home into the new space. The new family room has a tray ceiling with LED strip lighting behind crown molding and custom designed molding above the sliders. The family room also includes a 72″ linear electric fireplace with stone façade, custom recessed panels above the mantel, floating shelves, cabinetry and a full-wall built-in bookcase.
Off the family room, a guest bedroom was added which can be used in the future should nursing or a caretaker be required for aging parents.
The in-law suite, which is 1,200 square feet total, includes a private driveway, one-car attached garage. A galley-style kitchen is also included with a two-burner electric cook-top, microwave, under-counter refrigerator, an under-mounted kitchen sink, custom tumbled marble backsplash and granite countertops. Toe-kick lighting is found in the kitchen and bathroom for hands-free use. The kitchen opens up to a private sitting area.
The addition’s new large bedroom suite includes lighted tray-ceiling and Universal design elements such as zero-threshold doors, a large walk-in shower, elevated toilet with grab bars and an oversized walk-in closet. The bedroom also features a private screened-in lanai.
A new office was added to the existing garage that includes impact-rated full-light French doors, LED lighting and matching crown and trim.
Enlarged doorways throughout the home round out the list of features that were added to this remodel allowing the owner’s parents to age gracefully and safely in their home.
With all new windows, roof, stucco, paint and landscaping, this home was instantly elevated to one of the more pleasant-looking homes in the neighborhood.
As a Certified Aging in Place Specialist, owner and founder of Varian Construction Bill Varian was attentive to every detail, precise and meticulous during every stage of the remodel.
