This is a corner lot with parking in the back yard. Everyone entered the house through the back door, not the front. To create a proper entry, a porch was created, the garage converted into a room, and an attractive deck added. It's both functional and beautiful.
The existing kitchen was absurdly small and dark with very little view into their gorgeous back yard. The natural thing to do was expand the kitchen toward the rear and give them both a fantastic view and a comfortable, roomy kitchen and a fantastic view from the dining area.
The most logical location on this home for a room addition was over the garage. To expedite construction and save money, a crane removed the existing roof. First, new floors were put in place, then walls, and finally the existing roof put back in place. It took one day!
A home office was required since the existing living space was completely inadequate. This large addition was added to the right side of the existing structure. The result is both architecturally beautiful and perfectly functional. Note the separate entry for clients.
The existing garage was inadequate. Plus, additional space was needed for teens to hang out. The solution combined the two projects into one by enlarging and restructuring the garage. Now, the upper room has high ceilings creating a massive playroom
