The one-story addition allowed us to soften the transition between the three-story Victorian house and the yard, creating a welcoming entrance from the garden. The new addition features a built-in window seat with a sunny south-facing window.
The covered porch adds a place to be out of the elements and strengthens the connection between house and garden. We replaced the seldom-used wood deck with a more appropriate brick terrace.
The old second floor bathroom was a great example of a poorly planned room. We were able to create two new bathrooms in the same amount of space.
