2018 Regional CotY Award Winner, Entire House $250,000 to $500,000
This 1925 cottage had 1,386 square feet, two bedrooms, and one bath. The clients needed more space since they both worked from home and required offices. The heritage trees, impervious cover regulations, and historic neighborhood limited what could be done to the property. A two-story addition added 1,000 square feet, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, two offices, and a private den. The outdoor living space was tripled with the addition of a tiered deck system. The original traffic flow was reworked, and an elevated walkway bridge that connects the existing home and the new addition was added—all without building any new structure on the ground.
