Project Description


The Clients asked the Architect to develop a plan to expand this one-story, 3 bedroom, 2 bath ranch-style home in the most economical manner to accommodate their growing family. They also desired to increase the curb appeal of this Madison Park home, located on a prominent corner lot.

They desired a final configuration with four bedrooms and four baths including a reconfigured master suite. The design strategy involved raising the roof to add square footage upstairs and to transform the dated design into a 1 -1/2 story Craftsman with gables, dormers and a suitable roof overhang with brackets.

On the first floor, the final design incorporates an expanded master bath with a walk-in closet, new front porch, and an expanded family room as well as an attractive open center staircase with wrought iron pickets and decorative chandelier. The second floor includes three bedrooms, an open bonus room at the top of the stair, and two baths including a Jack-and-Jill bath.

And while heated square footage almost doubled from 1,800 sf to 3,300 sf, all the additional square footage is accommodated under the new roof. The front porch is the only area expanding the footprint. The second floor interior is designed to take advantage of the story-and-a-half design with vaulted ceilings and dormers to create attractive bright spaces. The exterior windows and gables of the addition are designed to integrate with the brick first floor to create a harmonious and seamless appearance with a scale appropriate to this up-and-coming neighborhood.
