With a quickly growing family, our clients were running out of space in their existing 1,500 square foot home. We remodeled and expanded their existing sunken living room, raising it up to the same level as the rest of the house, and giving it a new roof, fireplace, windows, and french doors. The doors exit to a new covered back porch, providing a comfortable outside space for our clients to sit and rest while watching their children play in the back yard. We also added two kids’ bedrooms, a bathroom, laundry room, coat closet, and space for a built-in desk. The new bedrooms were situated so as to allow light to stream in from two directions, giving them an airy feel and providing nice backyard views. The end result is a more spacious, light-filled home that meets the needs of this family of five.
