Those of us with kids or grandchildren will appreciate this room addition. Imagine not having to step over toys or figure out where everyone can sleep when family comes for a visit. That was the task presented to us for this project. The living room addition was designed to increase the livable space by 800 sqft. Not only was a bright new family room desired, but also a new full bathroom and custom laundry room.
As with all room additions, we wanted to make sure the integration with the existing home was seamless. Our ability to match the pitch of the roofline and not remove the upstairs windows was a perfect solution. Surprisingly, this allowed us just enough room for a decorative tray ceiling that brought extra elegance to the room. The exterior cedar siding matched the original construction flawlessly.
Once construction began, we were asked to extend the room an additional 8 feet. We were able to accommodate the request before the foundation was laid. This extension made all the difference! Going from a cozy family room to a wide-open room; perfect for family get togethers. Low-E windows keep the room nice and bright without sacrificing energy efficiency. In the new laundry room, we utilized the space by installing custom cabinets and stacking the washer and dryer. Pull-out drawers and large storage shelves make laundry a breeze. The bathroom incorporated a sleek 1/2" thick tempered seamless glass shower enclosure and contemporary blue slate floor tiles. A custom built murphy-bed was the finishing touch to allow visitors to feel at home in their own suite. Just as the project was wrapping up, we noticed that the kitchen and dining room had no flow into the rest of the house. The simple solution to open up the wall with a functional pass-through made all the difference and made a noticeable improvement on the functionality of the space.
Overall, the new living room, bathroom, laundry and kitchen project turned a simple living space into a warm and inviting family area that can double as a second master suite.
