The Rexroth Bungalow | Valdosta, Georgia
This Craftsman Bungalow, built in 1920 and located in a designated historic district, was given an extended life when Mr. Rexroth renovated it in 2005. The 3200 square foot two-story residence underwent a complete renovation converting it from a 3-bedroom, 2-bath plan to a 4-bedroom, 3-bath plan. The space plan revisions created a master-bath and powder bath on the first floor and captured attic space to create a master-bath on second floor. Exposed fabric-coated wire and porcelain insulator electrical system was replaced, (2) split system mechanical units and associated ductwork was installed, the plumbing system was completely replaced from water meter to sanitary system connection. Finish work included removal of multiple layers of wall coverings and smoothing of gravel textured wall surfaces, new cherry wood cabinets with granite counter-tops, removal of floor coverings to expose oak and pine wood flooring throughout the residence, installation of 2-step crown molding throughout, application of bright white paint to all trim and existing built-in cabinets to contrast with brightly colored walls, and installation of custom draperies and window treatments at windows throughout. The removal of overgrown landscaping and replacement with low profile shrubs and closely manicured creeping fig on the stucco walls permits the original craftsman detailing to shine through.
