This new 2600 square foot home posed a unique design challenge.
The existing single story house was in bad disrepair and is set to be demolished. Inspection of the foundation showed it to be in unbelievably good shape and usable. The client wanted to add a second story with 3 bedrooms upstairs and the master bedroom on the main floor. The site conditions were very tight as we were close to the maximum allowable impervious area of 35% which allowed us to add about 150 square feet to the existing footprint.
Designing the home using the predetermined shape required trial and error. In the end, a smooth flowing plan with large open areas and an over-sized kitchen was produced with an attractive craftsman style elevation that will be visible from both streets.
