The owners lived in the home for years and dreamed of creating additional square footage and elevating its mid-century character. The carport had been converted to a bedroom by previous owners, providing three bedrooms, but the compartmentalized layout did not leave much space for the family of five. Their idea for an addition, though, did not fit within the site constraints.
The addition provides the square footage to offer an extended kitchen, dining area, family room, powder room, music room and much-needed storage tucked under a newly raised area that can be accessed by lifting the hinged staircase. Two family spaces on the raised level have wooden sliding doors to provide privacy and separation, and continuous sightlines improve connectivity.
