The Slide House

Residential Renovation


Location: Roanoke, VA
Project Type: Interior Renovation
Project Size: 3,250 sq. ft.

This project was a complete interior renovation of an existing ranch-style home, designed with "fun" as the theme. The owners and their children, each with their own unique sense of adventure, worked with IDG to create a reading alcove that allowed for direct view of the kitchen and living room, a large play room, and, most importantly, a full sized spiral slide. This renovation also opened up the master bedroom and living room by exposing the shape of the roof above. The interior layout included a kitchen centered around a large island, an open staircase with cable railings and large windows to maximize the views and natural lighting. Other amenities included a new entrance porch with adjacent mud room, storage on the lower level, a shower that doubles as a dog-washing station, a screened porch, and an outdoor shower.
