Today I am sharing our 1970’s cute split level house remodel project in Foxboro Ma that has been in the making since last September. Be sure to follow us on Instagram as I have been sharing the demolition process on Instagram stories.
1970’s Split Level Remodel
The current exterior plan for our is to remove all the old siding, windows and roof shingles and replace with new white board and batten siding, new black windows and coordinating roof shingles.
By the time we are done with this house, it will be the cutest modern house in the neighborhood sporting a designer modern farmhouse look.
The existing back deck is in actually in pretty good shape, just needs to TLC!
We will be removing all the dead trees around the property and renovating the existing landscape…it’s not looking too pretty right now!
The split level house was built in the late 1960’s and has never been updated. In fact, I think all the door knobs and even the faucets are original!
We have partnered with Horner Millwork, Masonite, Armstrong Ceilings and Wolf Home Products for this entire project and it’s going to be epic!
I took these pictures about a month ago after the previous owner moved out.
Typical of a split level house or raised ranch, there are 3 bedrooms, a full bathroom on the main level along with the kitchen, dining and living room area.

We are currently waiting for the architect to finish the engineered beam design so we can get moving on opening up the space.
If you are in the construction industry or are currently remodeling your own home, you know that every field in the industry is backed up for months.
The price of materials are 3 and 4 times more expensive compared to a year ago and wait forever for things like design plans. It’s crazy!
Split Level Entryway
A split level entryway as you walk in the front door is typically very small with two sets of short stairs leading to the lower level or the main living area.
We have big plans for this cute little house and you are not even going to recognize it once we are finished.
The entryway will sport an oversized craftsman style door with sidelights and a gorgeous window transom above.
Wait until you see the portico design for the front entrance! It’s going to look amazing!
I have a blog post coming soon with ideas on how to modernize a split level home featuring my inspiration for this cute home.
The house currently is about 1100 square feet with an unfinished very scary basement.

All of the walls will be removed in the basement and new 2×4 framing, sheetrock, ceiling and flooring will be installed.
One of the biggest things you can do to increase square footage in your home is to finish the basement or lower level.
If you saw last weeks post featuring Jim’s split level house that he sold, you know that he added an additional 1000 square feet by finishing the lower level adding a new master suite, office and laundry room.
