You may have driven on this beautiful curving street in the Ann Arbor Hills neighborhood on your way home.
You may have used Devonshire Road as a short cut between Washtenaw and Geddes, or to get to the Racquet Club. You will have noticed that each home has a distinct personality and architectural style; some modern, some traditional, some hidden, some with a welcoming garden lovingly tended over many years. We are so happy to be back for our second project with our wonderful clients and their delightful family. Our team, at Rochman Design Build, has some fun work ahead. Please check in regularly to see the changes happening in this home on this current work blog.

The 2nd floor will be expanded and will include the remodeling of the two bathrooms,
an addition of a new laundry room, and the reworking of the bedroom layout. 
The 1st floor remodel will include the 'opening up' of the existing kitchen,
the expansion of the mudroom, and addition of a three season room.

Here is a view of the front of the home.  The second floor above the garage will be expanded.

This is a view of the back of the home.  The existing deck will be replaced with a three season room. The master bathroom will undergo a complete transformation and expansion. The ‘girls’ existing bathroom will also be rebuilt within a new location.
