The Ithaca I project was a renovation with a 400-square-foot custom addition. The goal of the project was to create more living space for our client’s growing family while also allowing more light inside.
After the foundation was poured and the frame of the addition was built, we systematically disassembled the exterior walls and roof of the home. By doing so, we could seamlessly connect the new space with the existing structure without any building issues. To give the exterior an updated look, we removed the old brick and siding and applied a stucco finish.
Around the existing fireplace, Alpine Summit Homes added new stone facing. New 7-inch wide-plank ash hardwood flooring melds beautifully with knotty alder doors featuring custom trim moldings. Every window on the main level was replaced with new Marvin windows. The addition contains a spacious family room with a wall of windows looking west.
To provide additional natural light and expansive views, we removed a 30-foot evergreen tree in the front of the house. The new front porch has vertical tongue and groove cedar siding and a standing-seam metal roof, providing a peaceful sitting area with an inviting entrance.
