Transforming a 1890’s D.C. row house

For the past few years, Washington D.C. has been at the top of the list when it comes to home improvement spending. Hordes of young professionals are moving to the city for employment opportunities within the ever-changing political sector, and the current housing situation isn’t up to speed. Fortunately, home pros like Finecraft Contractors are transforming abandoned buildings like this one into architectural masterpieces.

Out with the old and in with the new

This D.C. row house was originally built in 1890, so you can imagine the amount of TLC it needed. Additionally, the existing square footage was too small for the new homeowners, and the only way to go was up.

The first step of the six-month-long project was to completely gut and clean the structure. Next, Finecraft constructed a pop-up addition on the top floor of the building. The result is a spacious master bedroom suite with a walk-out balcony and a view.
