2015 Addition $100,000 - $250,000

There is nothing worse than seeing an historic home that has been updated poorly throughout the years. This is often due to painting over existing beautiful woodwork or utilizing poor craftsmanship. In this case, an unsightly “wart” addition had been added. We were asked to remove a 1970’s family room that had been grafted onto a classic 1920’s house. We were to replace it with an architecturally appropriate addition. This new addition was to provide a family room and, if possible, a way to connect an existing guest bedroom that was over the garage to the house without having to walk outside, which was the current situation.

From inside the house the addition opens with a small “ante room” that provides a place for directing circulation to the family room, bathroom, new deck, or guest bedroom. This room also adds a balanced formal area instead of facing directly into the family room from the living room. Coved ceilings were added into the new rooms along with custom matching mahogany molding to match the original work.  The connection from the house to the guest bedroom was accomplished with an eight-foot passageway that acts as a mini-library to the home with built-in seating and airy windows on both sides. A generous deck supplies guests’ their own private outdoor space and affords connection to the home, as well as a new indoor passage.
