These clients wanted a dream
kitchen and a small sitting room, all with a view to their
backyard. The solution was this two-story addition designed and
built on the back of their original 1916 Craftsman style home.
The plan required moving the existing kitchen and sitting room
entirely into the new addition. There is ample space for
displaying her collections, and upstairs we preserved the master
bathroom and expanded the bedroom. The addition steps back on
the second floor, so when you are in the backyard, you donít
feel towered over by the house. It makes for an inviting and
comfortable garden. The natural cedar shingles and mostly earth
tone colors used on the exterior gives the house a nice woodsy
feel for an urban house.
