Add new space for future expansion; open up to the front yard; improve the home’s circulation
This 75-year-old house was craving an upgrade to fit both the current and future needs of a young family. The remodeled home now opens up to the front yard to give it a more welcoming feel. The addition of the spacious front porch is an ideal and comfortable perch for parents as the children romp through the yard.
The entry was moved to the right side of the house, which improves circulation throughout. A new living room occupies the space that once housed a single-car garage. The addition of stucco and plank siding revealed a home that hasn’t just been improved and updated, but has been reborn.
“As architecture, the renovation captures a style and weaves it convincingly through the spaces. The hidden dimension here is that the homeowner benefits from a seamless process that bypasses the typical, potentially disconnected and often protracted ‘architect and builder’ process.” —Mark A. Newman, senior editor, REMODELING.
