What it was before: Outdated and closed from the rest of the home

When Richard and Teresa Ollis bought their new home in center-city Springfield, it was the architecture they fell in love with. An open floor plan and expansive rooms were just what they wanted, but the home needed updating, so they brought in Bryon Weber with Weber Home & Land LLC. “We just wanted to bring the home up to date and give it a more traditional, casual and comfortable feel,” Teresa says. In the living room, Weber and his team tore out three layers of linoleum flooring, added trussell beams, raised the ceiling from 8 feet to 9 feet, put in white trim and base molding and knocked out a wall-to-wall closet to make room for the TV cabinet. “I worked closely with our designer Kevin Parnell to keep the integrity of the home,” Weber says. To breathe new life into the dining room, Weber expanded the room’s entryways to open it to the kitchen. “This really improves the traffic flow if you’re entertaining,” Weber says. From there, Weber was able to arch the entryways and install white oak flooring. For a slab-on-grade home, this required some creative problem solving and rerouting of plumbing and electric, but the end result is flawless flooring. To get the traditional look they wanted, Parnell and Weber decided to add the coffered ceiling and dark drapery. With these touches, granite countertops and a 1940s chandelier the Ollis' found in New Orleans, the new room boasts a timeless atmosphere.—Ettie Berneking

The Major Changes

No. 1 Expanded the entryway between the kitchen and the dining room, which opened up the entire kitchen, dining room and living room area and made it ideal for entertaining family and friends.

No. 2 To ensure the fireplace was a focal point in the living room, open shelving was added over top of the brick, leaving it as a backdrop.
