Pictured below is a large home addition project we recently completed. Fortunately, the weather was mild enough this winter that we were able to work without much delay. There were many days with temperatures in the 50’s which allowed us to even complete the stucco work. Had this winter been like last year, the stucco work would have had to wait until Spring. This particular project involves three distinctly different additions. On the left side, we added an addition behind the existing garage designed specifically as a workshop. We kept the garage addition separated from the existing garage by a door and installed a gas heater so that the homeowner could use it year ’round. The existing roof above the existing garage was extended straight back and we created a stepped double gable which from the rear looks less massive and more appealing.
Next, more in the center of the project is an open back porch with a gable roof and decorative archway to let the sun shine in. The columns were designed to be decorative and not structural. Here we used cement lap siding as an architectural feature on the gable wall instead of stucco. The floor of the open porch is pavers which leads to the main patio via a wrap around paver step. Inside the open porch, the stucco house wall and existing kitchen window remained. The French doors leading to the open porch are new and are part of the third part of this project which included enclosing the existing shed roof open porch. If you look at the “before” photo, you can see how we transformed the back of this home.
On the right side, we added a distinctive family room addition. It’s unique shape and roof make it the focal point of the project. Arch top double hung Andersen windows fill this room with lots of natural light. We removed the existing sliding glass doors to open it up to the existing family room. Inside, the uniqueness of this addition is highlighted by the 8-sided vaulted ceiling which goes up to a point. As with all of our additions, this addition includes insulation in the floor, walls and roof. There is a crawl space beneath the addition which connects to the existing basement. We installed HVAC ductwork with floor registers and return air vents connected to the existing furnace to ensure that the homeowners are comfortable in all the seasons.
