Historic Hyde Park Coach House Remodel

Francis Bryan Remodeling, (FBR) enjoyed working with these homeowners again on their latest project, their own home in beautiful Hyde Park.

This historic coach house was converted into a single family home many years ago. The homeowners chose to remodel their home and update the systems while still retaining a historic look and feel.

FBR specializes in remodeling beautiful historic homes. This project was a labor of love for the family and FBR was happy to work with them to modernize and restyle their dream home. Enjoy viewing the gorgeous result as well as a few before photos which show the historic nature of the project.

DR to K- after

FBR worked with a custom cabinet maker and the owners designer to complete the installation of the custom fireplace and surround to match the cabinetry in the new kitchen.

French doors before 2Drafty, old doors were removed. Remaining historic glass transom panels were refurbished to match the new doors.


The overhead beams, which were once white, were restyled to match the living room/dining room and kitchen floors. The kitchen flooring was removed, wood that matched the species, Douglas Fir, and grain of the original floors was sourced and installed and all floors were sanded, stained and finished to match the beams through out the home.

 Beautiful new custom kitchen with custom cabinetry, stone backsplash, and copper farmhouse sink. A few special touches include the custom made back door with glass panels inserted into the original door. The wall between the kitchen and dining room was removed to open up the area and hardwood floors were installed, stained and finished to match the rest of the first floor living area.

Laundry 2- after
FBR truly enjoyed working with the designer and homeowner to redesign this multi-purpose first floor 3/4 bath and laundry room. The client and designer selected the unique tile, shower enclosure and custom designed and painted cabinetry for the laundry. FBR worked closely with the designer and cabinet maker to install and insure this beautiful result.
Laundry-after Beautiful, historic and unique. What is not to love!
Bath original tile
This interesting and historic tile was found as the bath/laundry room were being gutted.
Selecting floor stain
FBR worked with the homeowner to insure the floors through out the first floor were stained the exact color that they preferred. These are the important details that go into every FBR project.
