The Ithaca 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.
To provide more 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 which provides a peaceful sitting area with an inviting entrance. To give the exterior an updated look, we removed the old brick and siding and applied a stucco finish. Every window on the main level was replaced with new Marvin windows.
Around the existing fireplace, we added new stone facing. New 7” Ash wide-plank hardwood flooring carries your eye throughout the old and new space. Knotty Alder doors with custom trim moldings complement the look.
After the foundation was poured and frame of the addition was built, we systematically disassembled the exterior walls and roof of the existing home. By doing so, we were able to seamlessly connect the new space with the existing home without any building issues.
The addition contains a spacious family room with a wall of windows looking West.
