On the second floor, a new Master Suite was created over the first floor Kitchen/Family Room. The Master Suite included a spacious bedroom and a full Bath including large tub, shower, double vanity, walk-in closet and water closet. A new Laundry Room was also created off the existing bedroom at the top of the stair. The removal of the existing low-slope Garage roof and replacement with a higher sloping roof enabled the creation of a large Loft space above the garage, while enhancing the character of the garage addition. Access to the Garage below and an inconspicuous door to the master bedroom allow versatile use of the space by the homeowners.
The Front Porch was expanded to wrap the South and West corners with tapered round columns and new railings, softening the boxy appearance of the house from the street. The addition of dormers at the second floor over the garage doors at the front broke up the massiveness of the new higher pitched roof. A shed dormer at the rear of the garage maximized the loft space.
