The clients of this 1950s neighborhood of modest homes needed more space for their family to grow. After careful consideration of their options, the family decided that remaining in their existing neighborhood was the best option, and their solution was to expand up and out to create the living space desired. Christopher’s design required a teardown and reconstruction, removing the roof of the existing home, saving only the first floor walls. A taller second floor over the old home was installed and an addition was constructed in the rear. The interior was reorganized, allowing for a more spacious and open living environment. To complete this new home the entire exterior was rebuilt. Working within the clients budget, plans for a future kitchen renovation were accommodated in the design and construction of this project.

“Chis did an amazing job designing our home. We were looking to expand our 1940’s Cape Style house to accommodate our growing family. His design turned out amazing. The house fits into the neighborhood without looking overwhelming from the street but offers plenty of room on the inside. Chris was easy to work, very professional and conscious of our budget constrains with his design. We would recommend Chris without any hesitation.”
