Creating room for a growing family in a 1925 bungalow
When our clients originally purchased their home, they were a couple of two. As they added two beautiful daughters over the next few years, they quickly outgrew the space that they had envisioned would initially work for them. With a master on the upper floor and two other bedrooms on the lowest level of the home, being separated from their children at night did not offer peace of mind. S. Baird Design, in a close working relationship with the clients, concluded that adding on to the lowest level of the home was the correct solution. Challenged by a steeply sloped lot, the limitations of the footprint for the addition were unique. Adding a new staircase and pushing the home east by roughly 8 feet (the maximum to mirror the existing upper floor footprint), they were able to reconfigure the lower level space to include 3 bedrooms, an entry into a mudroom, a full bathroom, and a laundry room. At the end of a successful project, our clients could finally sleep in peace and comfort.
