This house is in the perfect location for this family with two young children but was lacking space and storage - two necessities for a growing family! To solve this problem, we added a three-story bump out to their home. With the new addition, we were able to increase the basement size for a larger playroom and storage. On the main level, we increased the kitchen size, a new guest suite, and a family room. On the top floor, we added a primary suite with vaulted ceilings, a walk-in closet, and an en suite bathroom.
We believe it is important to maintain the character of the home when adding an addition, especially this house that has a wonderful gingerbread character with lots of period architectural details on the exterior. We were able to replicate the original details of the home on the new addition to keep the character and charm. A unique addition to this home is the bi-fold window in the expanded part of the kitchen that opens to the new patio. The window ledge makes it easy for passing food to and from the guests on the patio!
