Charles Allen Drive – Second Story Addition

Second story additions have become rather popular in the last few years especially in the City of Atlanta.  Home owners living in older neighborhoods want to stay but are running out of room for their growing families.  The only option is to go up.

This existing, 1800 square foot, single story home on Charles Allen Drive is in excellent shape and has a newly remodeled kitchen.  It is currently a 2 bedroom, 2 bath home.

Adding approximately 1500 square feet upstairs, the home will be a 4 bedroom, 4 bath home with a new space for either a nursery or office.  The exterior is unique with prairie style windows and cantilevered decks.  The railings are constructed of aircraft wire.

Adding a new story to a home requires the services of a structural engineer to evaluate the existing foundation and offer design of any new footings.

The exterior of the remodeled home is a dramatic change from the original design.
