Residential Addition and Alteration 2013

Completion October 2013.  Phase I of project completed in 2002.  Current project is second floor master bath and closet addition with remodel of 2 bedrooms.  Phase I consisted of lower level kitchen, family and breakfast area remodel.  Phase I structure was designed for Phase II work.

This project is an example where an existing older building provides most of the visual themes and the newer structure blends with it, though a few uniquly modern elements are introduced where they do not create jarring contrasts.
