Location! Location! Location! After living in their home for 18 years, the owners looked to move, but like most, couldn’t find anything that checked all the boxes. The task was to carefully deconstruct the 100-year-old home and rebuild to suit the couple’s contemporary needs while preserving the neighborhood’s character. The homeowners had a great sense of design and a smart architectural plan to bring natural light into their three-story-home on a narrow site. The new home’s basement features two short-term rental units with dedicated entry for travelers to fit right into the vibrant neighborhood.
- Narrow lot
- New city drainage field requirements for front of home
- Integrated shower wet room with glass door keeps the space light and bright
- Emphasized natural light through large skylights, expansive windows and doors
- No boundary between interior and exterior
- Created covered back patio with outdoor soaking tub
- Single-gable, craftsman-feel that still fits into the neighborhood
