Historical architectural review requirements dictated the approach for this addition and renovation of the original house built in 1924, an example of pure craftsman styled 1 ½ story bungalow with two baths and three bedrooms. Built on a poured concrete basement.
The arched front porch provided the architectural theme. The addition of a large modern kitchen with a corner tower configuration establishes the transition from old to new.
Beyond the kitchen an open carport (a preferred carry over from the owners previously renovated home in the neighborhood). A two car attached garage with adjoining garden room creates a private inner courtyard with outdoor living porch and two-way fireplace.
A den or family room featuring the thematic craftsman detail connects to an individual master bedroom structure with comprised master bath, closet and laundry suite in the original construction format.
Altogether this house has the appearance of a completed project at the outset. Historically integrating materials, colors and textures.
Energy efficiency concerns were met with full Geo-Thermal HVAVC zoned application. Spray foam insulation in the exterior walls and new insulated doors and windows establish a high R-factor.
Interior and exterior finishing detail was replicated much like the original.
Altogether this house has the appearance of a completed project at the outset. Historically integrating materials, colors, textures and design make for a seamless transition from old to new. This extensive addition and renovations will preserve this remarkable work for future generatios
