Overview: This spec house built in the 60s was in need of a facelift that would give the home a classic feel.
Challenge: Zoning requirements prevented us from increasing the footprint, requiring us to maximize existing space.
Solution: As a result of restricted space, we reconstructed the original attached garage and added a new bedroom above it. We also restructured the roof with a steeper pitch and added attic dormers. A front porch addition provided curb appeal and a new front door, fully operating hinged shutters at each window and a complementary metal roof made the home feel more inviting. Clapboard shingles and retrimming in addition to traditional eave extensions and brackets at the facias contributed to the overall look and appeal of the home.
Phase II of this project involved the renovation of the first floor. We opened up the kitchen exterior views with double casement windows and relocated the powder room to create more space for a larger island and coffered ceiling.
