This 1907 home, in the Water Hill neighborhood of Ann Arbor, had a renovation back in 1999 and again in 2006 to try and solve the complicated 1st floor layout - to no avail. In order to get to the living room, you had to criss-cross through the kitchen, across to its left side (by side door). Rochman Design Build re-configured the kitchen, pantry & living room layout. The new space provides a direct path from front entry to back entry. The kitchen is spacious and contiguous. Our clients are elated with their new space. The kids do their homework on the new island, there is room for 2 or more in the kitchen, and the details of the tiles provide enough sophistication to outlast the young children phase.

In this Ann Arbor Remodel, A classic Burns Park home gets a wide open kitchen and dining room, combining charm and functionality.  Removal of the separating wall meant moving structure, heating, plumbing, and electrical, and it was well worth it! You can see photos of the entire project on our Houzz profile or by category on our website gallery section.


Nestled among majestic trees in Ann Arbor Hills, this ranch truly transformed with a major second story addition. The red brick home got a gray and stone pop up to highlight the dramatic new entrance. The gorgeous new fir door, inlaid with glass is welcoming under the gabled cedar front entry. The 2nd floor addition included a wood and glass curving staircase, a family room, guest room, bedroom and bathroom with penny-round mosaic tiles and a walk-in shower. You can see additional photos of the project on our Houzz profile, by category on our website gallery section or in our Archived Work section (2nd Flr Addition - Chestnut St).


In this Ann Arbor home addition and remodel the only thing that stayed the same in these photos is the fireplace. To give the house a new look and feel, we lifted the roof up and installed clerestory windows, and enlivened the living areas and master suite with exposed timbered trusses. You can see photos of the entire project on our Houzz profile or by category on our website gallery section.


Drastic personality change for this Ann Arbor bathroom/ powder room - bringing it from the 1970’s to 2010’s.  The porcelain wall was designed as a floor to ceiling backsplash around this modern sink - a Corian washplane that drains into the wall.  A modern wall mounted faucet and a clean mirror with standoffs complete the clean lines. You can see photos of the entire project on our Houzz profile or by category on our website gallery section.


This 1920's home in Ann Arbor Hills required major renovations that Rochman Design-Build performed in several stages. As with many older homes, we again, removed a major bearing wall to create a beautiful open space. The kitchen, small and isolated, needed to flow with the other rooms and relocating the stone, structure, electrical and plumbing were the first steps. A new linear burner fireplace sits below a flat screen TV, all housed in a beautiful stone wall. The new space functions as a modern space while the details respect the old Dutch Colonial style of this barn shaped home. You can see photos of the entire project on our Houzz profile or by category on our website gallery section.


If your eyes are the windows to your soul, then your smile is the front door... One of the most dramatic changes that the Rochman Design Build team brought to this Ann Arbor Hills ranch, is the front entry. a Fir and glass front door nestled between two glass panes invites family and friends alike into the added spacious foyer. Guests can hang up their coats in the beautiful front closet, take off their shoes while sitting on the bench, all under a gorgeous modern chandelier hanging from the tall ceiling.  This was part of a 2nd story addition that Rochman Design Build built on this house.

Two additions are visible in this Ann Arbor Home Addition: The one car garage was replaced with a two car garage with a master suite on the 2nd floor.

Remodel and Addition in this Ann Arbor Polo Fields home... and yes, this is the same space!   We moved the breakfast table out of the kitchen and into the large family room addition. The kitchen is now more spacious with gorgeous craftsman details throughout, and has the warm finishes of cherry cabinetry, granite countertops, wood flooring, and a custom copper vent hood. You can see photos of the entire project on our Houzz profile or by category on our website gallery section.


This Ann Arbor home overlooking Gallup Park got a stunning and modern new look that is highly functional for this busy family. The kitchen, although spacious, had only one point of entry around the bend and far away from the front door. By providing an additional hallway that improved circulation, the travel time between the home's entrance and the kitchen is now 80% less. The kitchen remodel included locally made custom cabinets, concrete countertops, and a raised breakfast bar. Our clients are welcomed home by the clean architectural lines and a sense of serenity. You can see photos of the entire project on our Houzz profile or by category on our website gallery section.


Home remodeling for all stages of life!   This 1890's farmhouse in Water Hill, Ann Arbor was transformed with a reconfigured floor plan that will allow our clients to age-in-place with grace and comfort. The old cramped dining space was remodeled into a new first floor bathroom with a roll-in shower. To maintain the charm of the farmhouse, we kept the original brick chimney in this Rochman Design-Build renovation. You can see photos of the entire project on our Houzz profile or by category on our website gallery section.


The living room in this Ann Arbor home remodel was opened up to create a more flowing space, connected with the dining room first, and then with the newly added kitchen in the back. The space is connected throughout with the uniformity of color, but with detailing that allows each space to function as its own. You can see photos of the entire project on our Houzz profile or by category on our website gallery section.


By reducing the number of windows and improving the layout, this kitchen lives and functions beautifully.

A large multi-story addition graces the back of this walk-out 1960's brick ranch Ann Arbor home. Angled walls throughout the house allow for verdant views from one of the few hills of Ann Arbor. The wrap around deck of Brazilian Ipe is highlighted by a hot tub and an indoor-outdoor fireplace. A new roof top deck is accessible by an outdoor spiral staircase, and is used for stargazing and summer time relaxation. Angled walls frame great views of lush trees all around.

Many of our projects involve additions as well as re-configuring an existing floor plan, thus enabling the home to function in a way that resonates with our clients' lifestyles. This living room now opens to a screen porch through the doorway, and is wide open to a kitchen addition that replaced the tiny kitchen of old. Wood wainscotting and custom trim work help Ann Arbor addition blend in with the older farmhouse style. You can see photos of the entire project on our Houzz profile or by category on our website gallery section.


The sunroom addition to this beautiful home in the Newport Creek neighborhood of Ann Arbor was about to get a super cool remodeling makeover. Although looking out onto a beautiful lot, it didn't take advantage of the natural light and gorgeous view. Our favorite detail for this addition is the custom made cupola that will grace the top of the new sunroom; perfect for starry night observations. 


The kitchen in this original 1890s farmhouse on Geddes Ave in Ann Arbor Hills needed a loving upgrade. Inspired by the feel of the home, the design team at Rochman Design Build wanted to highlight the kitchen's eclectic charm but needed to reconfigure the kitchen layout. The new kitchen now features the brick wall, previously hidden behind the stove, as an accent wall. The entire space has more light from the additional windows and space for an added pantry. All cabinets are custom made. The new look embraces a modern farmhouse feel that is elegant and artsy.
