Reviving a Ranch House: A West Lafayette Couple's Journey to Their Dream Home with Riverside Construction

February 1, 2024

Introduction: A Journey of Home Transformation

In the heart of West Lafayette, a local couple embarked on a journey to transform their dated 1968 ranch house into a dream home. Riverside Construction had the privilege of sitting down with these homeowners to delve into their home remodeling adventure. Their story, filled with challenges, decisions, and delightful discoveries, offers a glimpse into the transformative power of thoughtful design and expert craftsmanship.

The Challenge of an Outdated Space

"We had a typical 1968 ranch house... Small kitchen, laundry in the kitchen, and it was dark and paneled," the homeowners began. They faced daily inconveniences, with laundry mere feet from the stove and limited access to their backyard, which hindered their enjoyment of the space.

A Transformation Beyond Walls

When asked about the impact of their remodeled kitchen and laundry, they shared, "It's amazing... our entire quality of life has improved." The renovation brought more than just aesthetic changes; it rejuvenated their lifestyle. "I didn't realize how much a calming, happy space would affect me," one of them noted, underscoring the emotional upliftment from their new, light-filled home.

Choosing Riverside Construction: A Local Connection

The decision to partner with Riverside Construction stemmed from personal connections and the company's strong local presence. "Everything just looked nice and inviting with Riverside," they explained. The initial consultation and Riverside's approach, particularly Kelly's insightful design, solidified their choice.

Living Through the Renovation

Adapting to life without a kitchen or laundry was a challenge during the renovation. However, they appreciated being able to stay in their own bed and directly communicate with contractors. Their trust in the Riverside crew was crucial, "We never felt uncomfortable... The Riverside crew was fantastic."

Post-Renovation Revelations

The renovation journey revealed their deep appreciation for light and open spaces. "I knew I liked it, but I didn't know I loved it," one homeowner remarked. They also gained a newfound love for clean lines and ample storage, which significantly reduced daily stress.
