Challenge

Design and build a three-bedroom, two-bath second-story addition over three-quarters of the residence and refresh the entire exterior while maintaining its original character.

Solution

We installed energy-efficient, vinyl, dual-paned windows to the existing home to match new windows in the second-story addition. We re-stuccoed the entire house, painted wood trim and installed a 30-year Class A, fire-rated, three-dimensional asphalt shingle roof. The second-story addition we designed and built substantially increased the home’s square footage. From the inside, the resulting second-story addition is very functional and spacious. From the outside, it appears like it had always been part of the home.
