In Part I of this slide show we toured the spectacularly remodeled Pleasant Valley home of Architect Ryan Lloyd, of Echo Architecture, and his wife Valerie. In this second part we pick up after touring the upper floor of their home and descend to the bedrooms and family room.

6 Responses to Great Bones! An Amazing Before and After Remodel, Part II

  1. Ryan says:

    You must be so happy to be done, guys. Way to go!

  2. Mary Ellen says:

    IMPRESSIVE! I rarely hear people move the kitchen when they remodel—that’s gutsy!

  3. Jane says:

    Super inspiring and visionary. It’s wonderful to see what a somewhat ordinary looking house can become with great creativity, appreciation “for good bones” and courage. And love that the neighborhood was chosen first.

  4. Margaret says:

    YOWZA! Ryan, what a fabulous and beautiful home. You and Valerie have made something special the whole family can enjoy for years to come. Congratulations!

  5. Renee Ozer says:

    What a jaw-dropping difference! What vision! I never would have seen the potential in the “before” version. I would have just thought, “Two dining rooms? Whatever for?”
